Shyne talks meeting 50 Cent for the first time and Irv Gotti with [AUDIO]

In 2004, 50 Cent attempted to sign Shyne to G-Unit Records. Ultimately, Shyne turned 50 Cent down and played a pivotal role in the Murder Inc. comeback of 2004, which angered 50. During this time, Fat Joe and Jadakiss also worked with Murder Inc. The disrespect toward Shyne from 50 Cent would lead to Game going against G-Unit, losing his label deal right after his debut album was released.

Despite being in prison, Shyne enjoyed a strong comeback in 2004, but was soon an afterthought once again, until he was released from prison in 2009. Shyne picked up where he left off, meeting with Game and dissing both Diddy and 50 Cent. Soon, Shyne would be deported and his top stories have come from his religion over the past few years.

Back to making music, Shyne has traded disses with Coke Boy Brock and Game, while he has received insults from many people. Shyne also has taken aim at Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, and Drake, among others. But, during his interview with, Shyne explained why he and 50 Cent would never link up. The two met in the 1990s and Shyne said he had more security than established stars and said he snitched on Irv Gotti.
