Shyne "Gangland" Download & Stream

UPDATE: Shyne enlists RZA, Pusha T and more for his new mixtape.

Shyne has released the cover art and tracklist without features for his upcoming mixtape Gangland, releasing September 26th - the 12th anniversary of his eponymous debut album's release.

Shyne originally intended to release Gangland in May 2011, but failed to deliver on the street date. The former Bad Boy rapper will now offer fans a free download of the mixtape, as well as a free album in November. His Def Jam LP will arrive in March 2013.

He most recently released the diss track "You're Welcome" aimed at Diddy, with whom he had reconciled months earlier.

Check the official cover art and tracklist below (via HHNM).

    If you're here looking to find radio play-tracks, I'm sorry to say you won't find it here. If you're here to find old-Shyne, maybe next year... however, if you're here to adsorb lyrics and substance, you've come to right place. Listen-on as I am! Thanks Shyne!!!

    This is by no means a classic; however, it's far from trash. It's much better than some of the shit out there... You can hate if you want but if you knew rap and appreciated lyrical content then this is easily one of the best mix tapes out there. My personal favourite is you're welcome. I miss the old voice but the current voice is much better than what he sounded like when he first came out. God bless you Po, nevermind the haters keep putting out your work and any lover of good music with lyrical content will thoroughly appreciate it...

    Well, this mixtapes show how important production and guidance is, especially for an artists who has been out of the game for as long as Shyne has been. The positives are that his voice definitely sounds a helluva lot better and his lyrics and subject matter are good, but his songs need energy and freshness. The rap game has changed and he's trying to merge what he knows/the old with the new. I hate it too, but the southern sound rules rap now and it's not all bad in the way of production and energy. So he needs to look into beats with some southern "bang" to them and update his flow and add some energy. Collabos wouldn't hurt either because he's basically reintroducing himself so he needs some known artists to get on some stuff with him and it wouldn't hurt to let some of them guide him some. I wish him the best, but if he keeps dropping stuff like this he'll remain an underground mixtape artist for the most part.

    I'm listening to this with an open mind. To me, Shyne's first album and what I consider his only album was excellent, close to a classic. His style and sound is obviously different now, but to me it's refreshing in a way because he doesn't sound like the other niggas that are out, being that he hasn't been around them or even on American soil for that matter. I'll always be interested in listenin' to Shyne because he's one of the only rappers who's life story would be worth reading. He's just a complex dude. He's political, he's cultured, he's gangster, he's religious, he's been to prison, his father is the fuckin' king of Belize or some shit, and his shit is hardcore but if you notice he doesn't swear once on this album. I'm burnin' some broccoli and listenin' to this shit now, I'll review it in a second.... Alright... The Good: First of all, the thing I respect about it is that it's lyric-heavy. Every song is fifty bars plus. He's got no shortage on lyrics, and he's not tryin' to prolong and camouflage his songs with special effects and stupid overdone hooks and shit. He's definitely well learned. This nigga makes reference to historic figures and situations that a lot of listeners and other MCs for that matter don't know nothin' about. Dumb niggas are gonna be turned off because he's actually making sense and saying something. He talks about crime and shit a lot but he doesn't glorify it. He's more interested in talking about the corruption of the system and government. He can still string together nice rhymes. Real MCs, especially from NY, will always have respect for the art of rhyme and will always give a effort to keep thier shit up to par. Shyne still has that skill. He also sounds hungry. There's no tellin' what his life situation really is, but whatever it is, his disdain and rebelliousness comes out in his music. As the album goes on, you really start to see that he's putting whatever is left of his heart and soul into this. Lyrically, he's still a million times nicer than the vast majority of MCs out. The Bad: His new found adlibs and background sounds that he makes are unnecessary and annoying. Everybody talks about his voice being so terrible now, I think people overdo it, but with that said, his voice isn't as good as it used to be. Some of these beats are wack. I respect that they're different, but that doesn't mean they're good. There's a lot of cheap sounding electronic synth guitars and shit. A lot of them are kind of trippety trappety too which isn't really my cup of tea, but some people will like that. His hooks are not good. I respect that he doesn't got a bunch of different people doin' his hooks, but he didn't even try on them. They sounded rushed. The Ugly: Shyne could always flow like mothafucka. He can still flow, but it's definitely more unorthodox now and some people aren't gonna be able to swallow it 'cause it's not what they expect. He has lost all his Biggie influence, which was what a lot of his former style consisted of, let's face it. Without that element, it makes for a different flow. The engineering and sound quality is choppy, which I kind of like but some people won't like that. I think it's dope 'cause it makes it sound like the music was actually made in a rugged studio and not some Miami production palace. I can't front, it bothers me a little bit that he won't swear. You can tell he wrote it with the cuss words in it, but he'll substitute 'em with somethin' that rhymes close to it. I just wonder why he was so careful about it, I mean, it's not like this is a album you're gonna play around your grandmother or some shit. Best songs on the album: "B.G." "King Judah" "50 to Life" "The Roller Song" "Dope Boy Fresh" "Super Doll" And all those songs are dope in a different way. I'll put those tracks up against anything out right now though. Peace.

  • Up North

    This tape actually goes in. If dumb niggas would turn the focus away from Shyne's vocals for one minute and hear what he's saying, you might walk away with a decent hip hop experience.

  • OUCH!

    4 in datpiff? really? come on....

  • Yamz

    Wasn't too bad really. Obviously we all wish he went back to his old flow and vocal delivery, but that clearly isn't happening, so fuck with it or don't. Why has he stopped using profanity though, does anybody know? And also, when did Shyne become a blood? lol

  • NiggaJuice

  • w h o k n o w s

    Shyne needs to bring back that flow and tone that real fans respect him for.. the lyrics are still there but deliver that shit wit some energy..I'll chk for this but if it's that same lazy mumbling shit I'll just still to his first two albums & let him kill 'im self

  • YEBO

    HE SHOULD'VE STAYED BEHIND THE BARS FOREVER - FOR KILLING THE REAL HIP HOP. ONE OF THE BIGGEST FRAUDS EVER, HOW HE COULD EVER BE GANGSTA? YES, THAT FUCKING NIGHT IN THE CLUB, BUT STILL, HE HAS RICH FATHER, PRIME MINISTER IN BELIZE, HE WAS PROBABLY RAISED WITH SILVER SPOON STICKED ON HIS GRILL, HE AIN'T EVEN FROM USA, BUT ACTED LIKE A RANDOM AVERAGE EAST COAST RAPPER, FUCK HIM, THIS GUY IS A GODDAMN JOKE. IT'S OKAY TO HAVE A GOOD FATHER AND LIVING GOOD SINCE YOU ARE BORN, AND IT'S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT, WHAT IS WRONG THAT THESE GUY ACTED LIKE A SUPERGANGSTA RAISED IN THE GHETTO BUT EVERYBODY KNOWS THE TRUTH. I'M NOT SAYIN' EVERYBODY SHOULD RAP ABOUT THEIR OWN LIFE BUT THIS GUY MADE UP TOO MANY LIES AND EVEN HE BELIEVED HIMSELF THAT HIS GANGSTA NEW YORK LIFE IS THE LIFE HE IS LIVING.

    • Anonymous

      LMAO nigga you know nada. Shyne was born in Belize before his pops was PM and he moved to and was raised in Flatbush and then Harlem at the age of 12. He had little to no contact with his father after he came to the US up until his release from prison. And do you really think the PM of Belize is some ballin-ass billionaire? Belize is a poor, corrupt country, nigga. Do your homework and stop talking out of your ass you stupid bitch.

    "that night at the club pretty much messed up his life" Not saying 10 years is a cake walk, but it's not like he got out as an old man. He can still do something with his life.

  • Anonymous

    "HE IN JERUSALEM SITTIN ON MILLIONS UNTAXED AND LIVING" Millions from what? He hasn't released anything in over a decade. I realize Def Jam signed him, but do you really think they'd throw a boat-load of money at him knowing they won't possibly see a return on their investment?

    • SCHWARZ

      INVESTMENT? HE DID TIME SO PUFFY WOULDN'T U REALLY THINK LA REID FLEW ALL THE WAY 2 BELIZE 2 GIVE HIM 5 MIL FOR SOME JAIL RAPS? LOL "Y'ALL N!GGAS IS LATE"-JAY-Z

    • You Know

  • bras4real

    i liked the puffy diss-track although the part where he faults diddy for giving him up in court..come on dude, were tons of witnesses in that club what u think puffy gonna deny the whole thing?? but its like 50 cent said what the f can he do he is not allowed in the sates still I like Shyne he has a good voice, he got flow and at least he walks the walk something you cannot say about the majority of so called 'pistol'rappers

    If Shyne could go back I bet he would change that night in the club. That ruined his career. Now he's just another forgotten gangsta with no hype and no chance of going gold.

    • Anonymous

      honestly, he cant even get in the US!!! and even with proper promotion/marketing, how many even goes gold nowadays? he was going gold back then when artists were going plat. I cant even get his voice to go back to normal..there has been a few decent tracks of his lately though..but damn..what a waste of talent.
