Shyne Inks New Deal With Def Jam
Recently freed rapper Shyne has inked a seven-figure deal with Def Jam, according to reports. According to Miss Info, Def Jam won a bidding war between Dr. Dre, Jimmy Iovine and other labels, for the rights to release Shyne's highly anticipated album, his first since 2004. Shyne is also reportedly being managed by HipHopSince1978, the same company that manages the careers of Drake, Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne. It’s being reported that Shyne is planning to record his album in London, although he was not allowed entry into the country last week, because of his immigration papers. This is the second time that Shyne has inked a deal with Def Jam. He signed a seven-figure deal with the label in 2004, although he clashed with CEO LA Reid over the promotion of his album, Godfather: Buried Alive.
