Shyne Samples Notorious B.I.G & Bob Marley on “Belize” | New Music

Apparently I’m posting this to highlight exactly how terrible it is. Shyne abuses reggae legend Bob Marley‘s “Sun Is Shining” and Notorious B.I.G‘s line from Puffy’s track “Young G’s”. I never understood the comparisons between Biggie’s voice and Shyne’s – aside from the fact they both sound on the brink of a heart attack, I thought it was a great insult to the late hip hop icon and wondered why Shyne would be happy settling as a bit of a poor impersonator. On “Belize” it becomes clear just how much Shyne isn’t like Biggie.

FREELOAD …if you want

However, it does remind you how brilliant the horn section on “Sun Is Shining” is, and how much of a tune “Young G’s” is – so press play on these jams and feel free to reminisce.
