Shyne Spends Thanksgiving With Belize Inmates

Recently freed rapper Shyne spent Thanksgiving Day speaking to hundreds of incarcerated inmates at a prison in Belize.

Shyne spoke with over 400 inmates at Belize's Hattiesville prison, on Thursday, November 26.

The rapper shared his experiences behind bars for a 1999 shooting, his career and his strategy for post prison, which he said every inmate should develop.

Shyne served almost 9 years in prison for his role in the shooting, which occurred inside of a New York nightclub in 1999, while he was partying with Bad Boy CEO Sean “Diddy” Combs and his then girlfriend, Jennifer “J. Lo” Lopez.

He was convicted of first degree assault and reckless endangerment for his role in the shootings.

Shyne was released from prison in early October but due to his conviction, the rapper was deported to his country of origin, Belize.

His bid to stay in the United States was rejected due to stricter post 9-11 immigration laws.

To date Shyne has yet to reveal his plans for the future as a recording artist.
