It’s as though some people never catch a good break and rapper Shyne is one who can testify to that.  After serving close to a decade for the state, it is now official that he will be deported back to Belize.

As a close friend of the rapper, Angie Martinez was able to brief fans on the situation and provide a rundown as to what the current situation is with Po, according to Miss Info.

Shyne’s team is fighting to stay in the US where his mother and his grandmother live and where they raised him….but it seems like he’s going to have to continue the fight from Belize. Shyne will be released from Immigration custody but will then be deported to Belize soon. He has Harvard Professor Charles Ogletree advocating on his behalf in concert with his legal team. They’re still urging fans to reach out to Governor Patterson’s office to petition for Shyne’s pardon but deportation is eminent.

One would be under the influence that the reborn Moses Michael Leviy, that’s Shyne folks, would be under plenty of added pressure and stress now that his departure has basically been guaranteed.  Martinez assures those, however, that the New York native is finding a means to deal with his emerging predicament.

“Shyne is one of the strongest people I know and he’s handling this situation just as I’d expect him to. It must be frustrating for all of his friends and family; he served his time, and keeps getting all these different dates and conflicting information. But he’s a soldier, he’s dealing with it.”

As previously reported, the rapper was originally scheduled for release on October 6, but was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement where it would be determined if he would be deported back to Belize, where he was originally born.

Fellow rapper Raekwon spoke on the circumstances of Shyne’s deportation recently on his IceWater Vlog stating that Po only did what he felt was best to ensure that he provided for his own.  By remaining in the States, it might have been the smartest decision to ensure that food remained on the table so it is wrong to deter a man from supporting his family.

It looks like another win for the country, but another loss for the actual citizens that keep the country moving.  Who would have thought that a person that was raised here since he was a child would be considered an alien to the States?  Chances are that if the shooting never happened, it wouldn’t have mattered.

Maybe the Land of the Free wasn’t meant to include Shyne Po.
