Tuesday, Dec 29, 2009 10:00AM
Former Bad Boy artist Shyne has reportedly linked with Miami producer Scott Storch to begin work on his first album in over ten years.
According to Storch, they share a close friendship.
"Yeah, Shyne's my man. I've been talking to him and I was talking to him all through his prison sentence. He's always remained a loyal person to me," Storch explained in an interview. "We became friends after he was already in [jail] and I found out he was a fan and he's just a h*ll of a cool guy. I'm looking forward to doing, not just one record, but doing a chunk on his album... He's in full effect. He's got people sending him tracks. I have a feeling he's going to make a really huge album... He's got a lot to say." (All Hip Hop)

Since being deported to Belize, Shyne has been speaking to inmates, offering advice and motivation.
"I didn't blame nobody else for my mistakes," Shyne told a room of inmates. "It wasn't my co-defendant's fault that I shot somebody in the club, I take responsibility, I did that sh*t, it was a terrible mistake and I moved on. So that's what I challenge you guys to do. Don't blame the C.O., don't blame the police -- you have to take accountability for your actions and you have to decide what your future is gonna be. You can't be following what this one say and that one say, I spent 10 years in the cooker -- it's a lot of gang bangers in New York, I didn't bang because I'm universal. I'm a boss -- I mess with everybody. I had the Italian mafia, John Gotti's boys, I sit down and break bread with them. I had the Irish n*ggas, the Spanish n*ggas, the point I'm trying to make to you is that you have to be a boss. And I started this when I was young." (College Essential)
