Shyne No Longer a Part of DJ Khaled’s “Victory” Plans

You win some and you lose some. Despite Victory being the name of his upcoming album, DJ Khaled apparently lost—a few key features that is.

After turning the rap world on its head by securing one of the first live recordings from recently freed MC Shyne, the Miami-based DJ has opted not to include the record on his new disc. An updated track list for Victory was recently released with noticeable lineup changes.

Jadakiss and Kanye West were initially billed as guests on the title track, which now only features Nas and John Legend. Also, the untitled Fabolous and Ne-Yo record will no longer appear on the retail version of Victory.

The biggest changeup, however, is the removal of the highly anticipated Shyne feature on “All My Life.” The song actually leaked earlier this month but received a lukewarm response from fans and critics alike. There’s no word from Khaled’s camp if that played a part in the decision to cut the song.

Despite losing a few high profile features, Victory gets beefed up with a plenty of extras—including Lil Wayne being added to the final version of “Fed Up” and all-star laced tracks like “All I Do Is Win,” featuring T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Rick Ross.

Victory is due in stores March 2. —Anslem Samuel
