ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND EDITIONS NOV. 2-5–Rapper Shyne sits on a stoop in New York, Sept. 9, 2000. The subject of an industry bidding battle, Shyne signed to Bad Boy, the label of hip-hop mogul Sean “Puffy” Combs. Shyne is also in a storm of legal trouble, facing an attempted murder charge from a 1999 club shooting that could land him in prison for years. His first album, which is self-titled, hit stores Sept. 26. (AP Photos/Jim Cooper)
