Upon being released from prison in 2009, Shyne was soon deported, returning to his native Belize. Back in his native country, Shyne reunited with his father and began recording new music. During this period of time, there were several rumors about Shyne. Among the rumors were Shyne signing to Jay-Z’s newly-established Roc Nation or signing with Game’s Black Wall Street label.
The only rumors which proved to be true was Busta Rhymes going to Belize to visit Shyne and record music with him. While Shyne began recording music in 2009, he did not make any announcements until 2010. When 2010 rang in, Shyne announced he was changing his lyrical flow. Shyne had been compared to The Notorious B.I.G. throughout his career.
When Shyne released his new music, during the spring of 2010, it was panned by critics and fans alike. Hearing the response from the fans, Shyne said it would take some time for everyone to get used to his new style. During his recent interview with XXL, Shyne revealed he was dead after spending ten years in prison.
While he did not realize it, Shyne said he was dead and he died from his prison stint. When he was released from prison, Shyne admitted he was more focused on himself than giving the people what they wanted. However, following the poor critical reception, Shyne told XXL he would return with his mojo in 2012.
