Shyne’s Homecoming Put on Hold


Instead of being welcomed home after serving an over eight-year prison sentence, Shyne is being held in custody and could face deportation.

The rapper, born Jamal Barrow, was set to be released from prison on Tuesday (Oct. 6) after serving his sentence stemming from a 1999 club shooting involving Diddy and Jennifer Lopez.

Representatives for Shyne revealed to MTV News that his release is now under review as officials determine whether or not to deport the Brooklyn MC, who was born in Belize. He is being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at an undisclosed location in New York.

“Shyne is currently in federal custody while his future immigration status is determined,” the rep told MTV News. Shyne’s attorney Oscar Michelen said that contrary to reports, his client had not been released as of Tuesday afternoon.
