New Music: Shyne – ‘Bury Judas’ (Game Diss)

Shyne

Shyne is out for blood. The former Bad Boy rapper rips into Game once more on his diss record “Bury Judas.” He previewed the track earlier on the acapella “Psalms 68 (Guns & Moses).” On the fiery record, he claims Game modeled his career after his and threatens violence.

“This is blasphemy, your career is patterned after me/ I got shooters out in Cali that’ll blast for me/ You forgot I’ll put your chest where your back should be,” rhymes the Gangland rapper in his husky baritone. “Get what you came for, you the big bad Blood, what you scared for?/ I shoot that butterfly off your face/ Tell Jesus peace and I’ma smile at your wake.”

Game previously addressed Shyne on his freestyle “Cough Up a Lung,” which was recorded in defense of his fellow Compton native Kendrick Lamar.

New Music: Shyne – ‘Psalms 68 (Guns & Moses)’ [Game Diss]

Shyne

The war of words continues. Shyne fires back at Game on “Psalms 68 (Guns & Moses),” which comes just days after Game’s latest diss “Cough Up a Lung.”

“This is blasphemy, your whole entire career patterned after me,” raps the Belize MC in front of the Harley-Davidson shop in Paris. “Get what you came for, you the big bad Blood, what you scared for?/ I shoot that butterfly off your face/ Tell Jesus peace and I’ma smile at your wake.”

The beef started after Shyne called Kendrick Lamar’s debut good kid, m.A.A.d city “trash,” prompting Game to step in and defend his fellow Compton MC.

Who took this round? Listen and weigh in below.

New Music: Shyne – ‘You’re Welcome’ [Diddy Diss]

Shyne and Diddy

Shyne revives his beef with Diddy on the diss track “You’re Welcome.” The two made up earlier this year at Paris Fashion Week, but the “Bad Boyz” rapper decided to release the previously recorded track after Puff didn’t deliver on the promises he made.

In an interview with Miss Info, Shyne explains why he decided to put out the record now. One of them has to do with Diddy’s failure to lobby on his behalf and help get him a U.S. visa. While money was offered (and turned down), Diddy ignored his request to tweet about a White House petition to allow him back in the U.S. (Shyne currently resides in Europe).

Shyne also feels that the Bad Boy mogul should have taken care of the mother of Anthony “Wolf” Jones, who was Diddy’s bodyguard and close friend before he was killed in 2003.

“Don’t give me any money, I don’t need it,” he said. “But take care of Ms. Jones. [Diddy] gave her $10k when I started talking to him, but that was it. But while we were in Paris, he spent half a million on his chick, Cassie… If it weren’t for Wolf, if it weren’t for me, things would be very different. There would be no Ciroc deal, he wouldn’t be worth close to a billion.”

Listen to Shyne air out his issues with his former Bad Boy boss.

New Music: Matisyahu f/ Shyne – ‘Miracle (Remix)’

Miracle

Jewish rappers Matisyahu and Shyne band together to celebrate the “Miracle” of Hanukkah. The former Bad Boy adds a verse to the reggae star’s single about the Festival of Lights, which appears on his Miracle EP.

“I recorded this aiming to make a celebratory, feel-good song that still gets across the depth of Judaism rather than the typical watered down Jewish humor about matzah balls and Chanukah Harry,” said Matisyahu. “I’m trying to make the Jewish kids out there proud.”

The two, who struck up a friendship over their Jewish faith, have recorded other collaborations together. “I’d say he was someone that I’d be there for anything he needs, and he has expressed the same for me,” Shyne told The Jewish Chronicle.

New Music: Shyne f/ Gucci Mane – ‘Trunk Full’

Shyne

Shyne chops and screws it up with Gucci Mane on their collaboration “Trunk Full.” The riding anthem, driven by a fast-paced beat and ominous synths, sees the Belizean rapper dropping off tough rhymes with a 16 from Gucci sandwiched between verses. “This is the realest shit ever/ Gucci Mane, Shyne, you might get your head severed,” threatens Shyne. Heed his warning.
