Shyne Released From Prison, Heading To Belize
Â Rapper Jamal “Shyne” Barrow has officially been released from Immigration authorities and is heading to Belize today.
Shyne was released from the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials today (October 27) and deported to Belize, his original country of origin, where his father Dean Barrow serves as Prime Minister.
The rapper boarded a Continental Airlines flight in Buffalo, New York with Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree.
He is slated to enter Belize City around 5:00 PM EST, where he will be interviewed and processed by Belize police.
Shyne, born Jamal Barrow, served almost nine years in prison for his role in a violent nightclub shooting in 1999 involving Bad Boy mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs and his ex-girlfriend, actress Jennifer Lopez.
The 31-year-old rapper will be received by his uncle and Belize parliament member Michael Finnegan in addition to Prime Minister Barrow.
While Shyne’s uncle stated that the rapper may eventually leave Belize to pursue a recording career from a European country, another source stated that he may take up residence in a Caribbean country closer to the United States.
