Deported Belizean rapper Shyne has stepped forward to address his issues with rapper 50 Cent and why a decision to turn down a G-Unit record deal sparked their seven-year beef.
According to Shyne, a simple misunderstanding between him and 50 triggered the 7 year beef.
“I don’t talk to kids, my life is too serious for that,” Shyne told radio host Funkmaster Flex. “I’m minding my business, man, I’m tyring to make this music, you dig? When I was out, I was selling records and he wasn’t out yet,” Shyne explained.
Shyne said Fiddy was trying to ink him to his G-Unit label: “When I went in the can–as far as I know–he was talking about, ‘I’ma shoot up the club like Shyne,’ and he was throwing it up. He knew what it was hitting for. I’m unquestionable in the streets. He was trying to get me to sign to G-Unit, and I wasn’t finna that. I wasn’t finna sign to Murder Inc., I wasn’t finna sign to Death Row neither. I was on my Gang Land thing. He just took that the wrong way and started talking reckless.”
Last summer, 50 Cent phoned in to Shyne’s Def Jam conference call, where he questioned the rapper for dropping multiple diss tracks aimed at the Unit.
