Posted By on February 26, 2008

Former Bad Boy artist, Shyne, will be getting out of jail after 7 years a little early. According to The New York Post's Page Six, the Brooklyn rapper will get out of jail a year early for good behavior. He has been serving a 10 year sentence at Woodbourne Correctional Facility stemming from a 1999 New York Club shooting. Shyne was part of a group who was with P. Diddy and his then girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, when Diddy got into a beef with a club goes, Mathew "Scar" Allen and three people were hit with bullets when a gun went off in the club. Shyne signed a $3 million dollar deal with Def Jam from behind bars in 2004 and released the album Godfather Buried Alive but album sales were disappointed. No one knows if Shyne will return to rapping after he gets out of jail.

Though slated to be released for good behavior, Shyne hasn't always
been the model prisoner. In '05 he was thrown in the hole for two
months after getting into an altercation with another inmate. In related news, Shyne's father Dean Barrow was elected prime minister
of Belize earlier this month, the first black person to hold that
office, according to USA Today.
