Former Bad Boy artist Shyne was reportedly denied entrance into the United Kingdom last week due to complications in his travel documents.
According to reports, the incident took place last weekend.
News tonight is that over the weekend Shyne packed up and headed to London via Cancun but he ran into trouble with immigration officials over some glitches in his travel documents. The rapper was denied entry into the UK and was turned back. Shyne was heading to London to record his new album and was accompanied by an entourage that included one local artist whom he has recruited for his new release. Shyne traveled through Mexico since he cannot enter the US because of his conviction for assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession. (Channel 5 Belize)
Shyne's first post-prison track, "All My Life," landed online last week.
"From the streets of New York, where the streets don't sleep, Shyne get 'em!," DJ Khaled says prior to the rapper's verse. "All my life I've been rolling with the D's and the C's," Shyne raps, "Steady ducking the police, ain't a friend/When they take me ahead, they fill me with lead -- Until it come to an end, I'll be bleeding in bed/I live slowly let you read in the F.E.D.S., Daddy wasn't there but my mama was a gem/But I ain't trippin' though, that's how I kill a flow....." ("All My Life")
Miami producer DJ Khaled recently spoke on his relationship with Shyne.
"Shyne is a good friend of mine, he's just a real dude, you know what I'm saying," Khaled said in an interview. "I kept contact with him when he got out, you know what I'm saying, I reached out to him and he's just a great person. I asked him to be on the album and he was like, 'Yo Khaled, you've been waving the Shyne flag since day one,' you know what I'm saying and he got on it. I know a lot of people holla at him and he's in Belize, he's doing his thing, he's a good brother, a real brother and he definitely repped me to the fullest and I appreciate it man. So shout-out to Shyne, Shyne Po, Shyne what it do?" (VIBE)
Producer Swizz Beatz recently announced his association with Shyne's own forthcoming album.
"I'm rocking with Shyne," he said in an interview. "I need him to find himself a little bit. Not to say he don't know who he is, I just need him to vibe off a couple beats and be like, 'Swizz, these are four joints right here I been rocking with, me and Scott Storchor whoever. This is the lane I wanna go with.' Then I could digest those things and then I can come up with the best records for [T.I.], Shyne, for everybody. These are different techniques so I can use those darts." (MTV)
