Shyne Fights Imminent Deportation


Upon his release from prison earlier this month after serving an eight-plus-year sentence, Shyne was detained by immigration officials. After his immigration status was reviewed, it appears as though the rapper will be deported.

According to HOT 97′s Miss Info, Shyne will be sent to his home country of Belize where his father lives. He has been in a federal facility in Buffalo, New York, awaiting his fate. The Brooklyn MC’s friend and radio personality Angie Martinez said that Shyne will continue to fight for a pardon so that he can remain in the U.S. where he has lived since the age of 13. His mother and grandmother also reside stateside.

“Shyne is one of the strongest people I know and he’s handling this situation just as I’d expect him to,” said Martinez. “It must be frustrating for all of his friends and family; he served his time, and keeps getting all these different dates and conflicting information. But he’s a soldier, he’s dealing with it.”

Shyne has Harvard professor Charles Ogletree on his side to advocate for him in his fight against immigration. Shyne’s camp did not comment on the situation as of press time.

    Ok…Shyne did his dirt and the manz dem booked him for that. Even back then it was bogus charges but all i’m sayin’ iz that if they are going to deport him…it should HAVE been from time…NOT after the man already served his time in U.S. prison. The man served 10 yrs when that should of easily been 5. Somebody somewhere hatin’ – but the boy got money so he will be alright.
