Apparently Shyne has signed a seven figure record deal with Def Jam after a bidding war ensued between Def Jam and Interscope/Aftermath. According to Hot 97’s Miss Info, Shyne who is not allowed to return to the US will do all his recording in London and has been working with Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua (the same guy who manages Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Drake) to help re-start his music career.
To me this seems a little unfair to new artists who are forced into 360 deals and are who working a billion times harder than Shyne -a guy who hasn’t released a song in 10 years. I mean peep Shyne’s first song since coming out of jail which was supposed to be on Dj Khaled’s Victory album and tell me it isn’t garbage.
