It’s been nearly 3 years since former Bad Boy and Def Jam rapper Shyne was released from prison, having served nine years of 10 year sentence for assault and gun possession charges that source from a shooting at a New York club, at which both Shyne and Diddy attended.

Puffy (as he went back then) was acquitted of all charges, even being labelled a “snitch” by some, which led to severed ties between himself and Shyne. The rapper has since converted to Judaism and been deported to his native Belize, and has looked to reconcile with his former boss and mentor.

In a new three-part interview that has hit the net, Shyne sits down and speaks in-depth on his jail time, reuniting with Diddy and more.
