Deported Belizean rapper Shyne has revealed his dissatisfaction with Hip Hop welcoming Rick Ross with “open arms” despite his past employment as a correction officer in the mid-1990’s.
Shyne, who just release his album, questioned Ross rise to fame to become one of the top gangster rappers in Hip Hop currently.
In a new interview with Superstar Radio Shyne said: “The difference between me and everybody else, I was talking to Fat Joe the other day when he was like, ‘Yo, it’s entertainment,’ and I was like, ‘That’s the difference between me and a former correction officer or any of these other dudes.’ It’s not entertainment for me. You dig? Whatever I give you, is me…[I’m definitely talking about] Rick Ross. Absolutely. He’s the only officer I know that’s a rapper. I don’t know anybody else that used to be a cop that raps…Hip-Hop comes from the gutter, it’s from the struggle, from the dudes that’s in prison so for a dude that used to lock dudes in, for the dude that used to be like, ‘Yo, on the wake up! You got a visit,’ for that dude to turn into the biggest gangsta rapper is like shocking to me. I don’t even understand that. That makes no sense to me…”
Last year Shyne subliminally diss Ross on his “Belize” record.
