Happy Birthday, Shyne!


Today, Nov. 8, marks the 38th birthday of Brooklyn rapper Shyne. Best known for his time at Bad Boy Records in the late 1990s, the Belizean-born rapper has had a notable career marked with setbacks but remains one of hip-hop’s most recognizable rappers of his era despite the adversity.

The Brooklyn-raised MC was convicted of criminal possession of a weapon, assault and reckless endangerment but found not guilty of attempted murder for his involvement in 1999’s notorious Club New York shooting. Shyne served close to nine years in prison and upon his release in 2009, was deported to Belize. But even though he’s in exile of the U.S., Shyne’s luxurious lifestyle in Belize is on full display on his Instagram.
