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.
