Shyne Says Rick Ross Is Lying, Talks Diddy Beef, Clarifies Statement On Kendrick Lamar

In a new interview, Shyne said Rick Ross is rapping about a lie, says he tried to reconcile with Diddy and adds that Kendrick Lamar's "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" wasn't "trash."

It's safe to say that Shyne has had a headline-filled year. After reconciling with and later dissing Diddy, starting a feud with Rick Ross and then calling Kendrick Lamar's debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city "trash," Shyne has had several controversy-filled headlines. He's even started a Rap beef with Game, with both releasing diss records. During a recent interview with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex, Shyne was asked to speak on a variety of topics to help clear the air. 

On Diddy, Shyne says he wanted to reconcile at first. However, he found it difficult.

"We all make mistakes and bad judgements. In that situation, he had been apologizing to me for the entire ten years that I was locked up. It was a constant thing. I wasn't really trying to hear it because I know how that situation went down. It was never a case of me complaining because I got burned. It was a situation where my mans, somebody who was like my brother, called the witness to testify against me. I took that with me until the end of of my bid. Then, you get out and you move on... I'm thinking about the bigger picture because, despite what's coming out in the media, I'm not trippin'. I want to be like Marcus Garvey. I want to be like Huey P. Newton. I want to see African Americans and Latin Americans like Barack Obama, having opportunities, making a way for themselves. I don't want to see us in the penitentiary, all of us thuggin' and buggin' and being monsters. That's not what I promote... I was trying to send the message that regardless of what happened, we can still reconcile." 

He was also asked about Rick Ross. According to Shyne, Ross is rapping a bout a lifestyle that he never knew.

"When I'm making commentary on Ross, everything I'm saying is fact. He's selling records based on a lie...If you're making millions of dollars off of this life, help these kids get jobs. Help them stop selling dope." 

Later in the interview, Shyne was asked about Kendrick Lamar's album. He backtracked on earlier comments, where he stated that the album good kid, m.A.A.d. city was "trash."

"I will give you this. It's not a classic album. It's not the greatest album I ever heard. Maybe the word trash was harsh."

    No matter how many times you name-drop Obama in a dick-sucking light, he will not let you into the country bruh bruh. Obama knows you are just talking this "Feed the children/Heal the World" bullshit until you step foot into the US, at which point you will buy 2 "Gats" and start terrorizing the Family Dollars across the country! Don't front! BOO YAH

    "he on every article defending" Did I ever say I was a fan of Ross? I'm simply pointing out the fact that Ross has sold. Not great sales, but enough to keep him in the game. I know it pains you, but the fat guy will still be here next year. With or without a platinum plague.

    "Rozay still actin when he leave the studio" And you know this because you hang out with him everyday? lol I doubt he goes home and makes his kids watch Scarface while he weighs his coke on the kitchen table. It's an act. Don't take it so serious.

      That might be true, but it could also be said for a large amount of other rappers in the game. They sell this fantasy life and everybody gobbles it up like the Colonel's secret recipe.

    Shyne > Kendrick Lamar. Shyne dropped 2 CLASSIC albums. GKMC was trash indeed, and Section .80 was extremely overrated. Show some fucking respect to one of the GOATS and quit acting like his opinion is invalid.

    • You're a bitch

      you're a bitch and an idiot. 2 classic albums? I don't hear classics. I hear a good and an okay record. You're an idiot for saying that, this dude voice is through his flow is tarnished, his rhymes are okay but with no flow he's basically on Soulja Boy's level. so cut that shit out.

    • Hilarious shit

      2 classic albums ?! Well ... I listenend to those "masterpieces" ! Shyne is bullshit ! Crazy that Diddy thought he was a new biggie !

    Preview: FC Bayern vs. Valencia CF These two teams met a couple months ago, and Bayern won despite Valencia putting up a pretty good fight. Since that match, FC Bayern has dropped an ugly match to Borisov, but then recovered to win 2 straight against Lille. Meanwhile, Valencia rebounded by winning 3 straight. Now, the teams meet again with Group F on the line in ... Match week 5 of the 2012-2013 UEFA Champions League. Bayern has won outright 15 of our 18 competitive matches this season, and looked like the better team in probably 16. Nonetheless, a loss vs. Valencia would threaten the ability to win our group, and maybe even endanger our Champions League campaign. I don't think it's an exaggeration to call this out biggest match since ... you know. The Line-Up Mario Gomez has been added to the squad list (and, as we already know, he appears to be ready to go when we need him). Mario could still be a late-spark substitute option, but either way, I think we'll see him play. Ribery, having missed this past weekend's match, is also on the squad list and expected to play. The only confirmed absences are Gustavo, Arjen Robben, and Jerome Boateng, who is probably out until at least the end of the month. Holger Badstuber is fit and travelling with the club, so he, Dante, and van Buyten are the fit CBs - 2 of those 3 will start. Here's my line-up guess: Mandzukic Ribery - Kroos - Mller Martinez - Schweinsteiger Alaba - Dante - van Buyten - Lahm Neuer Nothing against Gomez, I think he'll play in the 2d half, it's just that the long-term injured are often brought on as subs at first. And Mandzukic has been finding the net. With Robben and Goose out, the midfield and wing spots are pretty clear. The question comes at CB. I actually think Badstuber might be the most skilled of the 3, but with Dante and DvB having played pretty well this past weekend, and Badstuber not having played for a while, I have a hunch Jupp Heynckes might want to stick with what he's been doing. The Opponent When the groups were first drawn, Valencia was seen as the biggest threat in the group. In the first match, Bayern controlled the game and eventually took a deserved 2-1 win, but Valencia's late goal and several botched possessions from our side showed that they can hang with us if they get a few breaks and create the right match-ups. Since that match, Valencia has proven they belong in the CL discussion, with 3 straight wins to draw even with Bayern atop the group. Los Murcielagos are also currently on a 5-match undefeated streak across all competitions. Now, this run includes a 1-1 draw vs. lowly Valladolid and a controversial 2-1 win over Espanyol that needed a close penalty call to go their way; still, they're generally tough at home, where they haven't been clean-sheeted all year. Valencia has also mixed up their line-up a bit since the last meeting. When we faced them in Match Week 1, Andres Guardado was starting at LW, and they had more of a wide 4-4-2 - slash - 4-4-1-1 approach, with Soldado up top. More recently, they've moved towards more of a 4-2-3-1, with Soldado still at striker, but their wings getting forward and trying to become more of an offensive threat. And, as part of that change, Jonathan Viera, a short, quick-footed Spaniard who played a few games with Spain's U21s, is now favored at LW. Lahm can certainly handle the guy, but it will be interesting to see whether our CDMs have to lay back a bit more to worry about Valencia's attack - in the last match, we were pressing forward from the midfield every chance we got. Elsewhere in the Competition In an exciting week in Champions League play (I mean, they're pretty much all exciting), Bayern vs. Valencia is probably the best of the Tuesday matches. But Chelsea vs. Juventus is also a huge battle; with Shakhtar playing so well in that group, the loser of this one stands a real chance at getting left behind at the end of the group stage. Also, Celtic has earned some accolades for their win over Barca and their strong campaign in general. But they now have a tough trip to Lisboa to face Benfica - if the Hoops lose that one, they are still in real danger our missing out on the knock-out stage. On Wednesday, the two other remaining German sides will face big matches. BVB and Schalke are both in first place in their groups, and both can actually stamp their tickets to the next stage one match early if they can win. Real Madrid crosses the Bay of Biscay and tries to crush the Man City CL campaign once and for all, while AC Milan and Anderlecht (currently in 2d and 3d place in their group) battle in Belgium. That one is basically an early knock-out game.

    "his whole life is fake, nothing he says is true" And you know this cause you're by his side 24/7? He was a C/O for one year. Now he raps about being a drug lord which is no different than an actor like Brad Pitt playing a mafia triggerman in his new movie despite the fact in real life he's anything but. What's the difference? People listen too and watch things too escape. To be entertained. If you want "real" watch the news.

    yes shyne TRASH was harsh. You called your own music that you put out after you got out of prison Trash. So you basically said Kendricks album was on the same level as the music you put out. Which just isnt true because the shit you put out was hot garbage and i was one of the people rooting for you when you got out.

  • Anonymous

    i always get confused about how people say Ross never lived that life. He was a CO for ONE YEAR when he was 18/19. He didnt get hot until he was 30. 11 to 12 years later. Who says in that time period that he didnt do any dirt??

  • 7 Cities SLymm

    * Shyne is the example of the dude that comes home from the joint and is out of place... * he stated his opinion of Kendrick's album, (which most people care less about his opinion) and caught heat for it...he is from an era of people calling people out and not being scared...he was a dude that would really stand behind his principles (even if they were wrong) * although i don't agree with his opinion, i respect that he kept it true and didn't hop on the bandwagon.... THIS GENERATION IS TOO SENSATIVE

    • ETK

      if he is from that era, hes doing it wrong. he didn't get heat JUST for his opinion on KL's album.. he got heat because ALL HE DONE since he got out of jail is talk shit about niggas on twitter. especially when nobody lookin out for his ass anymore. log the fuck out of twitter, do some music, make some moves, anything.. then he wouldn't have caught as much heat. now he's gettin hot because of his comments again. a nigga like that won't be getting cheered on or anything,, fuck you think

  • Anonymous

    Who cares if Ross is lying. Name a rapper who hasn't fabricated something for fame and fortune. Shyne is an example of somebody who had his meal ticket handed to him, but decided to act a fool. He should be banging his head into the wall everyday knowing he could be living a very different life right about now.

  • JETLIFE116

    compared to what came out this year & what's been "cool" in Rap lately , Trash was a harsh word for GKMC.

    I will give you this. It's not a classic album. It's not the greatest album I ever heard. TRUTH

    • brian

      So that's how we judge music now? Whether it's the best album ever or not? Fuck outta here, Wu-Tang, Nas, *insert token golden era backpacker wet dream artist here* have been dropping average ass albums for decades and people come out and don't want to here any criticism. Fact is Kendrick's album shits on anything Shyne ever did so he has no right to be negative towards it, he was a bitch looking for attention that he can't get on his own through his music.

  • Milehighkid303

    This man Po is really actually starting to look like a STRAIT dickhead. fam, CHILL, Kendrick was LITERALLY like what 4? when Shyne was gettin' it in.....let the lil man be, that's like me teasing these 16 year old kids about thier snap backs, skinny jeans and bright colors. Times are changing and this HIP HOP SHIT ain't HIP HOP, so, let it ride fam, this guy in the last month has said MORE then he did in his entire career(or lack there of), dude acts like he put in work like crazy cause he has some knowledge of some street shit that was goin down in NY back in the mid to late 90's. The recent comments on 50 are also halarious seein as those two also have a well documented history. My point is this, I for months was like this just sayin fuck this, fuck that.....and at the end of the day....guess what? Shit didn't change, the INDUSTRY gunna keep lettin these gimmicks in hip hop and the music will continue to change. I miss the90's as much as the next man, but this dickriding form of hating HAS GOT TO STOP before anything can even begin to turn back in the right direction. PEACE.

  • Hip Hop please

    With all these wack albums in 2012, it was a HUGE mistake to call GKMC trash You could like the album or not, but when your ears and brain function normaly, you should know better I hope to hear more good music in 2013 No more - Ross, Wayne, 2Chains etc etc would be nice Oh yeah, and no more stupid comments from Shyne would do the job

  • fcvs

    that's not bad he started by saying it's trash, now it's not the greatest he has ever heard maybe after the next 10 interviews he will say the album is classic

    People only hype that Kendrick album up and call it classic cause no one else is dropping good music... Especially new artists.... So if someone comes and drops something that isn't complete garbage like rest of them, it gets an instant classic label. When the hype cloud has passed over and people check their emotions they will see that this album isn't really that great.

    • lol

      Everybody talked about Nas' album when it dropped you goofy and it was critically acclaimed and sold alright, based on the circumstances. Most are saying the album of the year is between GKMC and Life's Good, but personally I like .80 better than both. Nobody talking about lupe cause he been sayin alot of stupid shit like gettin abducted by aliens

    • hiphop is still dead

      dude is right. Do you hear anybody talking about Lupes album or Nas's album????? No!!!!!! peoples also claimed these albums were classics.

    • tresdemayo

      Oh yeah it was much better when we had Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Kriss Kross and Skyzoo. Seriously, I assume you are a hip hop head so let the masses listen to garbage and enjoy (and support) the good music that's out.

      Amazing?? Everyone in the mainstream besides the vets like Nas and Kanye are putting out trash. Ken shines brightest cause there's no one else... His competition is people like meek and 2chains...

      The quality of rap music is actually amazing nowadays if you dig a little, the real garbage time was when Shyne came out and everybody thought he was the news Biggie when he was just a nice rapper.

    • Cudder

      you need to check yourself & stop speaking for many people. I for one don't put "new artists" in the same box like you niggas do. lotta cats out there today still put out quality shit and GKMC went above most of em.
