Shyne Set To Be Released From Prison This Year

Dag...it really has been 10 years. Rapper Shyne is set to be released from prison this year after his sentence on charges stemming from a 1999 shooting at a club in New York.

According to BET.com, Shyne learned that he will become a free man October 6 after a parole meeting yesterday.

Shyne's attorney Oscar Michelin further explained the situation: "What happened was when they sentenced him [in March of 2001 to ten years] they didn’t sentence him to any parole – post release supervision, which was mandatory. So the Correction Department has asked the court to re-sentence him – under the law they can do that,” Michelin said.

Shyne's parole time is unknown. He could face the maximum of five years of parole or as little as a year and a half. His parole sentence is likely to affect Shyne’s future as a recording artist. If he faces the maximum of five years, he may not be able to leave the state to tour or record with other artists. I hope he doesn't because I want to see what all he has in him now. Ten years in prison?! That brings about some heavy meditation in a lot of people. So I know he has some hot lyrics for us.

Shyne made his debut in 2000 with a self-titled album on Bad Boy Records. His debut single, “Bad Boyz”—which reminded many of the late Notorious B.I.G.—reached number 9 on the Billboard R&B charts. Three years into his 10-year sentence, Shyne released his sophomore effort, “Godfather Buried Alive,” which featured the Foxy Brown-assisted “More or Less” and the Ashanti-backed “Jimmy Choo.”

Shyne is currently the CEO of Gangland Records. Good luck with everything Shyne! We're waiting on your next album!
