Shyne just doesn’t get why President Obama won’t allow him to obtain a work visa to come back into the country. A native of Belize, the rapper was deported after his 2009 prison release, and has been trying to get things back on track, ever since.
The former Bad Boy artist explained in an interview with All Hip Hop that the president doesn’t realize his worth. “For whatever reason President Obama don’t see the benefit that I bring to the African and Latin-American impoverished communities throughout the United States of America.
“He doesn’t seem to get the fact that [there is] nobody more [qualified] than myself to speak to these kids in an honest way with integrity, that can influence them to change their lives and turn their lives around. He doesn’t get the fact that I’m the spokesperson to combat the violence in inner cities.”
Given his clear sense of self-importance, Shyne will do whatever it takes to make his way back onto U.S. soil. “We’re working on getting a visa, so I should be in the United States in March of 2013, with or without Obama.”
