Former BadBoy Artist “Shyne” Signs 7-Figure Deal With Def Jam
Miss INFO reports: Shyne has signed a seven-figure deal with Def Jam, ending a bidding war that included Dr. Dre/Jimmy Iovine, after the Brooklyn emcee was released from prison and deported to where he was born (Belize City, Belize) back in October 2009.
The plan is to have Shyne work out of London. That is, if he can get past UK immigration.
She also reports that Shyne has been working with Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua for a while now. (Joshua and his HipHopSince1978 partner, Gee Roberson, also manage Lil Wayne, Drake, Young Jeezy, etc.)
