Shyne is on a roll, but not in a good way. Since being released from prison, he's (unintentionally) shunned the Hip-Hop world by spewing hate left and right, and picking up no new fans along the way.
Like it or not, Hip-Hop is very much like the cool click in school: secretly everybody wants to infiltrate the cipher, while pretending that they could care less...and Shyne wants some respect. The latest attention-grabbing statements from the struggling Belizean rapper are about West Coaster Kendrick Lamar's Good kid m.A.A.d City debut, which he called “trash.”
To make matters worse, when Lamar's TDE brethren, SchoolBoy Q, defended him, Shyne called him a “f-g.” Nispsey Hussle also chimed in, tweeting that Shyne's “West Coast pass is revoked.”
Of course the argument in support of Shyne's claims (hear me out) is that he is entitled to his own opinion. On the flip side, given the music that he's been putting out, one can't help but wonder if he's even qualified to give a critique on anything.
As well all know, Shyne spent years behind bars, only to come out and get deported back to his homeland. Chances are that that cold hard slice of reality turned him into a mad man. Like many in his position he sought solace in religion, changed his name to Moses Michael Levi, grew out his beard, and kept it moving.
At this point, no one should be surprised or offended by anything he says, but just for sh-ts and giggles, take a look at the one-sided beef he's picked with anyone he can think of.
Shyne is just an angry dude.
