Shyne roams the streets of Jerusalem in a clip for the.LIFE Files TV, which shows the former Bad Boy spitter in full Orthodox Judaic garb. The Belize native, who changed his name to Moshe Levi Ben-David and currently resides in Israel, explains how his decade-long stint in prison changed his perspective on the world.
“I been in some wars in Brooklyn Vietnam, but ain’t nothing like down here,” explains the holy roller while perched in front of the Wailing Wall. “It’s happening, it’s happening wherever you go. That’s one thing that human beings all have in common, and that’s that thread of pain.”
Watch as Shyne goes clubbing, discusses the holy scriptures with rabbis, and is greeted by a fan who asks him to spit a verse from “Messiah.”
