Shyne Speaks On Importance Of Squashing Beef With Diddy

Shyne says that his beef with Diddy could have blown up to dangerous levels.

Shyne and Diddy recently met up during a trip to Paris Fashion Week, erasing any doubts that the two had lingering beef with one another. Releasing a statement to XXLMag.com, the rapper, who changed his name to Moses Michael Levy, said that the rivalry could have reached dangerous levels and ended in possible bloodshed.

“You can’t overstate the cultural significance of what Shyne and Diddy reconciling means,” wrote Shyne. “You know I’m about it when it comes to them hammers, thus unfortunately this could have ended like Tupac and B.I.G. But what if Tupac and B.I.G ended like this and reconciled?

“Let’s celebrate this moment as a historical event and a victory for hip-hop and Afro and Latin American men trained to exterminate each other,” he continued. “It’s a new day! L’chaim!!!”

Shyne also touched on the important example that this sets for Black and Latino youths. He said that it could be a powerful moment in helping troubled adolescents think before committing wrongdoing.

"On a scale of what this says to African and Latin American men, who have been trained to self hate and to self-destruct, this is a watershed moment,” he wrote. “The paradigm shift that’s taking place as the way Afro and Latin American men deal with each other is tremendous. This could be a gigantic step in putting an end to the cycle of hate and violence that is self-genocidal and destroying the minority community by sending fathers off to jail or an early grave.”

    Am I the only one that feels that Shyne is thinking too highly of himself? Great, glad you let it go. Yeah that sends a positive message, you ain't Pac or Big nor is your signifigance to the culture major in anyway.

    he did 10 years for that motherfucker in the can, and if he can let that go that easily than my hats off to him. It takes alot of nerve to let go of that grudge... Shyne a real ass nigga

  • sharkbite

    It doesn't really matter why or how what matters is that people have to move on with their lives, forgive (not forget) and try to use what they learned in a constructive way. Let Diddy help Shyne get back to Brooklyn, to the studio, to the streets to talk to kids and help them get an education, learn to be men, take responsibility for their lives. And if he is not relevant to some people, fine. But give him a chance to become relevant again after ten years of prison and two years of exile from his family and career. Shyne's music might be going through growing pains, but I believe he will come out of this with great music again.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Shyne iz one of da realest gangsta rapparz alive. he killed 50 Cent on many songz. diz nigga iz a real gangsta cuz he singed to YMCMB. why hate Diddy? he wrote Biggiez lyrics... Diddy iz a hip hop legend. YMCMB BAD BOY! swag

  • Mr Flamboyant

    You know Im about it when it comes to them hammers," Gatdamn!! LOL Man I miss Shyne Po. But to the truth of the matter, this is indeed a cool thing when cooler heads can prevail, i.e. Shyne, and forgive Puff for the snake ish that resulted in 10 years behind bars. This is a sign of strength. Truthfully, a little part of me wishes he reverted to Shyne Po and answered Puff for all that sneak thieving shit he's done...including having something to do with BIG's murder. Yeah I said it. Now that is another story. Peace, Shyne.

    • Real Talk

      HAHAHAHA I love it how people allude to shit with no facts to back it up. How did Sean have something to do with Bigs Murder? Were you there in the car that fatal night? Were you part of his camp? So shut the Fuck up and stop making accusations on a subject you know nothing about. All your information comes from the media and internet researches and if you believe both of the sources as true facts, then your just as dumb as I expected you to be. Shyne talking about them "Hammers" that aint nothing to be proud of. Only a coward carries a weapon I don't give a fuck what anyone thinks. God gave you 2 arms and 2 feet and thats all the self defense any human being needs. You know how many innocent lives have been taking over,the fact that the dumb nigga holding the Gun cant aim straight, so he ends up shooting innocent bystanders and does not even hit his target. A lot of children would be alive if it wasn't for that mentality the your beloved Shyne has.

  • IROC

    Takes a real man to forgive this devil maybe he going to use this snake to get back in the united states diddy devil got Biggie murked in front of hundreds and got away with it ruin countless badboy artist careers and still laughing all the way to the bank !

    • IDontAcceptBullShit

      Im glad somebody know what time it is. I have always said that Diddy was the one who got Biggie murked but no one wants to believe that shit. Also Diddy had help from a WELL KNOWN rapper to complete the hit, once again no one wants to talk about that shit. Its more than a well known fact that Diddy then fucked up plenty of promising careers!! It just feels good to see that there is other people out here who know the real and not just accepting the bullshit answers!!!

  • Shyne is a hypocrite

    Come on Shyne..Stop fronting I thought you were a G with it...It was the check Diddy cut to you and your moms.Stop acting as if it were religious beliefs and divine intervention that made you lay with a snake again.You said you had nor room for serpents and rats in your life when you were locked up and now you embrace a dude that is both and then some.Whatever dignity you had just went out the window.

    shyne speaking positive is nice to see

  • bkstylz

    I like what he is saying, but I still think he is going to try and snuff puff. This is just so he doesn't expect the knife in the back.

  • Nico 3

    Shyne is old news. He's no news. All that talk about fielding major offers has resulted in nothing. Diddy has already proven he is not your friend, and from a business standpoint, he'd simply rape your pockets again.

    wow. over exaggerate much? no one gives a fuck. literally. no one. This is not a monumental shift. this is no gigantic step. things will continue on as they always have. No one gives a fuck about you Shyne, ive tried to be a fan since you dissed 50 in jail, now your just whack and washed up.

    is this referring to Shyne doin time for the grazing of that chick in an NY nightclub? and is Shyne still gonna do Marley type music or go back to hard rap? cause the roller song is pretty political and aggressive lol.
