Shyne Set For Release From Prison, Diddy Speaks On Rapper Being Freed

2009-09-29 - Shyne and DiddyAfter nearly nine years of incarceration for his party in a shooting at a Manhattan night club in 1999, Bad Boy Records recording artist Shyne is finally set for release in October.

Last month, an order was signed by a Manhattan judge setting an October 6th release for the rapper, after serving eight years and some change of a 10-year sentence.

At the time, Shyne was just 21-year-old. He’s has grown up in prison, and is now 30.

With less than two weeks to go, his former boss Diddy recently revealed that he and Shyne are on speaking terms, and there is no more beef.

The hip-hop mogul phoned into New York’s Hot 97 radio station recently, saying he’s happy Shyne is finally coming home.

“It’s a blessing that [Shyne’s] coming home,” Diddy said. “I spoke to him like a couple of weeks ago and he sounded like he was in good spirits. I know he can’t wait to get home. I know he is definitely going to heat the whole scene up. He was definitely one of talented young artists that I had the pleasure to work with. I’m quite sure he’s been using his time wisely and has some heat.”

Shyne (real name: Jamal Barrow) was sentenced to 10 years back in June 2001, for his role in the highly publicized shootout at Manhattan’s Club New York in 1999, where he, Diddy and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez were partying.

The sentence was the result of several convictions, including two counts of assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession.

When the sentence was given out, Diddy called it “unfair and extreme,” but Shyne later revealed some animosity toward the Bad Boy Records head while being interviewed in 2004, in support of his sophomore album, Godfather Buried Alive.

“How do you call a witness to testify against your comrade? That don’t make no sense. If I’m telling you that [the club bouncer] is lying, and you saying ‘Well hey, she’s helping me’ — I’m facing 25 years. You looking at probation,” Shyne explained in an interview with MTV.

“Those types of things are unacceptable. You don’t have to hold my hand, you don’t have to do nothing. But don’t try to hurt me. That’s intentional,” he added.

Godfather Buried Alive was released through Def Jam Records, and was eventually certified gold.

  9. fuck diddy fake ass bitch ass nigger when shyne come home he should fuck diddy ass up and get down with jay z

  10. Shyne kept getting hit at the board, best believe that Puff had something to do with that. I am sure Po had to convince Puff that he was beyond that and revenge is not in his scope; to get him to co-sign an early release. Don’t be surprised if Po never really gets any real time on the street, before Immigration picks him up and tries to deport him. That will be another 2 years in keep. That too will come courtesy of Diddo, if he feels even the slightest threat.

  11. rap niggas you got a hard hitter back on the block. he has one of the sickest flo s. I hope diddy blesses him proper you know he spent 8 yrs out of his life.
