Shyne Speaks On 1999 Nightclub Shooting

Shyne addresses the infamous shooting that sent him to jail.

Shyne has made multiple headlines with a slew of beefs this year. Now, the rapper is addressing the 1999 nightclub shooting that sent him to prison for nearly a decade.

"People like to be revisionists; they want to go back and change what it was," explained Shyne in an interview with booska-p.com. "The bottom line is a situation happened, a very unfortunate situation, where three people were injured."

Shyne Po continued, explaining how the situation was one of self-defense. "One of those people tried to shoot me. You know what I'm saying? One of those people tried to shoot me. One of those people was my homegirl. A woman by the name of Tanya Ruben. She was a singer, she was from my block, she was cool. We would go to the studio together, all that, and I'm definitely sorry that she had to suffer. But there was like four guns going off that night, at least ..."

In the interview, Shyne also stated that his co-defendant called untruthful witnesses to the stand, and named artists such as Fat Joe, Ghostface Killah, Max B, and a number of others as those who he feels actually lived the life they rap about.

    "its not possible that spending ten years in jail allowed him to find (jewish) god??" Of course it's possible, but look how he spends his time. Trashing other rappers. Still rapping about violent things. He's faker than Mase, and it's sad cause most of these fools think religion is something they can wear like a hat for a little while then take off, but still be covered for the afterlife.

      What is religion? Kind of abstract isn't it. Religion is what you profess. It is what you do. Pimping is a religion. Tricking is a religion. Hip hop is a religion. Religion is what you do? What is your religion? What do you do? I see - try to discredit cats' message based on their cultural and faith based attire. Man, I would relax on this kid, bruh. He speaks as a man who is an expert in the field of a subculture of crime, violence and oppression. In addition, he speaks in language that is accessible to the audience he is trying to reach. What's the problem? What's a real G, anyway? Who determines that? You? Give this dude a break.

    How can he expect anybody to take him serious sitting there with his hair all chopp'd up? He looks silly as hell!!! Also, Why would a REAL G spend all his time on the net talking about a Clown azz nicca like Game? If you so real move on, and change the subject. We all know Game is a joke, you the CLOWN for just figuring that out. Smh...Move On Gangsta!!!

  • jet li

    I like Shyne as a person he seem legit. I just cant believe the shit he says about himself. Even before he went to jail he was a bit above average as a rapper. Nobody is feeling him as a GREAT, or even a one time great. A couple good songs dont make you a Messiah. In New York they may have viewed Shyne as "The Next Big Thing", but nowhere else. Homie need a serious reality check...You are an average hood nigga, who got a deal, went to jail, came home and NOBODY cares. Who cares you went to jail and did ten, not me! Who cares about your old life, move on.

  • Hip Hop Fan

    I am a huge Kendrick Lamar fan but Shyne is right when he said that Kendrick's last album wasn't a classic. I think it was more of a concept album and Kendrick could have done a way better job on it. As for The Game, why is it any of his business if someone else is commenting on Kendrick's album.

  • lmao

    this fake nigga was shooting at the roof

  • Youngn'

    If you dislike this interview...then you ain't no real street nigga...He speaks the truth and I understand where this man is coming from because this new age rap is all about making up stories knowing that their not about that life...Shout out to all the real g's in the street and the ones that made it out and is successful.

    • reality1212

      i'm not claiming to be street or whatever BUT big respect to all the intelligent comrades! it doesn't take a scientist to see the truth in this matter. granted it may not be NEWS, but let's not act like Shyne's basic premise isn't relevant. know the difference between entertainment and speaking truth... they usually don't mix

      CO-SIGN Yougn and A. Shyne speaking like a real nigga. He is right about these dudes nowadays. Niggas were really in the streets like that in the 90s and early 2000s. Todays shit is full of wannabes. Niggas would really get shot at, stabbed, beatup, and the street gangs were really involved. Shit e-40 even showed his gangsta. Niggas had Biggie cornered with guns. Biggies body guard even confirmed that niggas had them and called up E-40 and he told them to let them go. This was all because Big dissed e-40 on the radio. E's thug niggas caught up to Big, then E-40 has the niggas escort biggie around town so other gangs wouldn't kill him Todays rappers are wannabe gangsters

    • A

      Co-sign. It's a new era, not condoning anything bad...but it's entertainment now a days

  • NONO

    Say what you want, everything he said about the rules is true...but the internet is full of kids that want to be respected for their image....So naturally hearing how it should be done in the streets just makes all of the "internet gangsters" upset, because interviews like this show them that they are not tough at all. Real gangsters are willing to throw their lives away...There is a big difference between that and attempting to punk someone through comments.

    or the people that come up in here juss to trash on an artist is garbage. if you have a comment have a little bit of credibility. the only fool is you making stupid remarks. if you already know you hate then click on someone or somthing that you do like, moron. Negativity only influences more negativity. Shyne more G than you goons. i'm not a fan though lol

    Shyne Po is trying to beat around the fact that his inexperienced ass started shaking like Muhamed Ali when the beef went down, couldn't aim straight and shot an innocent woman in the face Oh, and then he went into protective custody for a decade.

      its not possible that spending ten years in jail allowed him to find (jewish) god?? and gave him time to reconize his shortcommings?? hes always had a lil political/social consiousness to his shit, but now that he aint really fuckin with the streets like he used to, he can go more into that lane... because unlike a lotta folks, he really does what he raps about..
