Belizean born rapper Shyne Po (aka Jamal Barrow), will be released from jail on Oct 6th 2009. He was jailed in 1999 for a NY club shoot out involving P. diddy and Jennifer Lopez . The shoot out resulted in a woman being shot in the face and a man being shot in the leg, when Shyne thought that a group of men who approached Diddy and threw money in his face were reaching for a gun.

At the time of the shooting Shyne was signed to Bad Boy Records and making his way up the music industry ladder; however alot of things have changed for him as he served his 10 year sentence. Shyne is now an Orthodox Jew and has changed his name to Moses Michael Leviy; his father Dean Barrow is now the Prime Minister of Belize.

I hope that his 21/2 year parole does not interfere with his ability to get back into the music industry. I really dugg this guys music back in the day and I'd love to hear what he has to say now that he has experienced all of this.
