Shyne to Be Released From Prison Today

After serving eight years behind bars, New York rapper Shyne is expected to be released form prison today. Shyne was incarcerated after facing attempted murder, assault, and reckless endangerment charges in connection with the infamous 1999 Diddy club shootout.

Shyne, whose real name is Jamal Barrow, was sentenced to 10 years in 2001 and released two albums while serving his sentence. He released his self-titled debut while awaiting sentencing for the shooting case. He went on to release ‘Godfather Buried Alive’ in 2004.

Diddy recently spoke out about Shyne’s release in a recent interview. “It’s a blessing that he’s coming home…I spoke to him like a couple of weeks ago and he sounded like he was in good spirits,” Diddy said.

“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 [many] 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.”
