Shyne is ready to get back in the spotlight and tomorrow XXLMag.com will be world premiering the formerly incarcerated MC’s new song, named after his South American homeland, “Belize”
Featuring posthumous appearances from former Bad Boy label mate The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z and Bob Marley, “Belize” finds Shyne Po rhyming over a laid back sample of the reggae legend’s track, “Sun is Shining.”
Peep a sneak peek of the song below, which showcases Shyne rapping a verse from the track, straight from his native land. “Listen, there’s a war on the streets, and there ain’t gonna be no peace ’til we all get a piece,” he spits in front of a local recording studio. [Watch below]
Shyne will be on cover of XXL’s new September issue hitting newsstands nationwide on August 10. This will mark the rapper’s first feature since being deported to Belize, after serving nine years behind bars on gun charges.
In the story the rapper reflects on his recently wrapped jail bid, life in Belize, his return to hip-hip, his devotion to Judaism and his relationship with Sean “Diddy” Combs, his former boss.
