Former Bad Boy Entertainment rapper Shyne has been living in his home country Belize since his release from prison in October 2009. He’s kept a low profile until last May where he performed via video satellite at the Bad Boy Family Reunion show in New York.
But the 36-year-old rapper is plotting big moves. In an interview with Bossip, Shyne revealed that he’s in line to be the Prime Minister of Belize.
“I’m going to be in Parliament in Belize very soon. I’m going to be leading my nation and contributing to my nation with all the capacity that I have,” he said. “My father is the right honorable prime minister, and he’s retiring and I’m succeeding him and my uncle. So I can continue in the legacy of my father and serve the people.”
“I love Belize. I love what I do for Belize. Everyday I change somebody’s life,” he added. “My father is the right honorable prime minister of Belize for the last three, consecutive terms, and that gives me access to resources, to power and influence to help poor people, to help people with limited income, people that are struggling and suffering the way I used to as a child.”
In addition to running for prime minster, Shyne is also working on new music project as well.
“I’m actually working on a rap/dancehall album right now, which is one of the reasons I’m down here (Belize),” he said. “So I got this Diamond League rhythm that I just did. Popcaan, I just talked to him, we’re gonna do a record. So we doing it, ten songs, rap/dancehall.”
“We just taking it one step at a time,” he continued. “I have a bio-documentary coming out [called] “Shyne, Then, Now and Forever.” I’m working with Universal Studios so that’s going to be the Shyne proper album. So you’re definitely gonna have new music from Shyne over the next 12 months.”
We can’t wait to hear what Shyne is doing musically. More importantly, we wish him the best of luck with his run for Prime Minster of Belize.
