Shyne to tour in the U.S.?

Moshe Levi Ben David

Remember Shyne? He is the prime minister’s son, who was deported from the United States following a nine year conviction for a shooting incident at a night club in New York. When Shyne landed in Belize, he was soon named Musical Ambassador for Belize and was provided with a diplomatic passport. He then moved to Israel. As a deportee, Shyne could not get back into the U.S., but in an interview with XXL Magazine, Moshe Levi Ben David says that he can enter the U.S.  The article says that “I can come to the U.S. as a Diplomat because I’m a Goodwill Ambassador for my country Belize…My job is really to go around the world for Belize and get people to invest in the country and to promote the country.  If I came to America on a Shyne Goodwill college tour, where we go to all the colleges and go to the inner cities and went on a peace tour, then it would work…If we did something like that it would be hard for them to say no, but it would have to be something like that on a Goodwill tour.” According to the XXL article, Shyne is on a goodwill tour in Paris, helping to raise money for potential education resource centers in Belize, Brooklyn and Ethiopia.

  2. Bulba Martinez says:

    Another opportunity given to this dirt-bag by his dad’s party. He is only using our country for his own benefit and not because he love our country. What else is new?. All good things must come to an end. It’s just a matter of time.

And Barrow lets this happen, just goes to show really. Would you invest in Belize if this !@#$# wipe approached you?

  6. Belize says:

    this fellow needs to get his head out of his @$$ and stop posing as a super star.. cause he is not short of a criminal..

  7. TRUE BELIZEAN says:

    WTF THIS DAM CRIMINAL THAT DOES NOT EVEN KNOW BELIZE AT ALL IS CLIAMING TO BE MUSICAL AMBASSADOR TO BELIZE IS LONE B $ AND WAS GIVING A DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT BY HIS FATER, WHAT A WHUS. THATS JUST TO SHOW HOW THE BARROW ADMINISTRATION OPERATE.

  8. Indy says:

    What an embarrassment made ambassador and given a diplomatic passport, what a shame! He never informed the Belizeans about this. There are far more deserving, non-criminals and educated Belizeans that deserves this. The musicians should make noise about this.

    Well well well, no surprise here, it was just a mater of time and we all should have known this… but I’m sure most or all of us did. oooops, the PM is doing it again. “Goodwill Ambassador for my country Belize” WHAT!? I’m sure they meant to print “CRIMINAL instead of GOODWILL”…Goodwill college tour? smells like a party brewing….NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF BELIZE…

  10. Phoenix says:

    What a joke!! He couldnt care less about Belize!!! He was given that diplomatic passport as a loophole to enter the US so he can continue his so called music career!!! What an absolute disrespect to the great Andy Palacio naming that phoney Music Ambassador to Belize!!! I hope the US kick him out again!!

  11. Chalis says:

    Why you all hating the game. He is one of the best rappers in today music and is helping boosting Belize by advertizing. Go Shyne and represent Belize and the Barrow family.

  12. Sad says:

    Shyne, Barrow, UDP too bad for Belize, only they believe in the possibilities…. with our tax monies. To Sad.

  13. DownToBiz says:

    He should complain to the legislature that he did not get to be the family’s Attorney General. It might pay more and he has real legal experience. What is the GOB paying for a music ambassador? Besides salary, first class air tickets are nice, but a private plane would make a stronger statement like air force one. Then countries would know about Belize and our famous singing ambassador.

  14. Elvis cano says:

    Is he going to raise money to buy guns and give it to the criminals like him? What a !xxxxg shame for this country! Are you going to take this $#!% from barrow? Do something people!! For the love of your children, stop being so stupid!!!

  15. Rodger Christopher says:

    No I never heard of him…but I’ll have a US Marshal waiting for him at the airport to welcome him to the U S…

  16. ny says:

    All the comments posted on here are so negative, and I guess most of the people who posted are ignorant about the facts of his case here in NY. You people are all fallible; Shyne has served his time, why can’t you all let him live his life. He is not a criminal, he worked hard @ his craft, and was able to gain universal recognition and put Bze on the map. If it wasn’t for that one faithful night, (in which he was defending himself), he would have been a superstar by now. My point is that he lost a lot, and the people who are envious of him needs to get a life and let him try to make a comeback.

  17. Alex says:

    I’m so tired of these HYPOCRITES walking around like Pharisees and Sadducees pretending to have the people at heart. Why do we Belizeans always have to be spending money flying around begging like we cannot take care of ourselves and our neighbors? Politicians have us like this…we beg here, there and everywhere. So is Shyne living in Israel with a Belizean passport? Good will ambassador for who his father and the corrupted politicians. Look what Belize has gotten to. We are a whore willing to give any part of our body for a token dollar here and there. We’re so close to becoming a FAIL STATE. And to all those ignorant music industry fanatics whose arrogance have their head stuck up their @$$, Shyne ain’t the best rapper. Find out why PDiddy was using the fool and why he got a little headway. READ Fools!!! Delroy could write better lyrics and Johnesha has a much better voice.

  18. Jessejames says:

    @NY….SHYNE DIDNT PUT BELIZE ON D MAP. I DONT HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST D YOUNG MAN..AN YES EVERY MAN NEEDS A SECOND CHANCE. HE WAS AT D WRONG PLACE AT D WRONG TIME WITH THE D WRONG PEOPLE THATS ALL. PEOPLE FAIL TO REALIZE THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF OUR OWN CHILD AN I BELIEVE THAT WE WOULD LIKE D PUBLIC TO GIVE OUR CHILD A SECOND CHNACE.

  19. brightman says:

    Chalis and ny, you obviously know nothing about Shyne with regards to Belize. He has never done anything to promote Belize abroad, nor to aid it in its development music-wise…he is an embarrassment to Belize! As most everyone has rightfully stated, his position as ambassador of music is simply Nepotism at work, a clear attempt at trying to get back in the US by whatever means possible, and a clear exploitation of Belize–that’s it!

  20. c says:

    who? … who careeeeeeees?

  21. NYBZEAN says:

    NY you sound intelligent and shallow minded at the same time. The Law is design this way but also you must remember a felon is a felon which will follow you for the rest of your life. He earns every thing he have YES, but also how can you EDUCATE or PROMOTE Belize if it wasn’t for deportation? he would have never visit the country. How can you run a house hold from another home? They say “CLEAN YOU BACK YARD BEFORE YOU CLEAN SOMEONE ELSES” Wake up NY

  22. Mel says:

    the entire country don’t know the guy and that is the problem … yes he served his time and might be a changed man … but Ambassador for a country he is currently not even in and not doing anything to promot his fellow Belizean artist (n there are many) is weak.

  23. Abner says:

    MADNESS! I just hope and pray he does not disappoint us very soon at a global scale.

  24. Eye in the Sky says:

    How much are we the Citizens of Belize paying Shine each month to be the “Musical Ambassador” and live thousands of miles away in Israel????
    Dean Barrow need to let the Belizean people know how much it is Costing Us to maintain a criminal.
    The USA is not stupid and will not be “shined” and will never accept Shine in the USA even if he becomes the Prime Minister of Belize.

  25. Musician 2 says:

    Nothing’s wrong with the boy having a second chance…but not on our dime and not at the risk of making Belize a laughing stock. His destany is to embarras this country – straight like that. While I’m at it I must agree with Alex above who is harping about our constant begging. For instance, is not the $40,000 being distributed in each constituency likened to the very complaint UDP has always chided George Price for – creating a mendicant society? Sure there are families in each constituency who truly need help but damn…a fish for a day?

  26. Elgin Martinez says:

    Shyne is no longer relevant in the HIP-HOP community.As a result he is just wasting time trying to get back to the US.

  27. Elgin Martinez says:

    Shyne did put Belize on the map in a negative way.

  28. Citybwai inna LA says:

    Well so Far Shyne is the only Belizean to every do anything big inna the music game. So nuff Respect still!!!

  29. chaveli says:

    bogus just like fraud dad

  30. ny says:

    as aforementioned,most of the people commenting negatively are ignorant of the facts surrounding his case. these people view shyne through their own preconceive notion about dean barrow. they fail to realize that shyne grew up in a single parent household; that he had pound the pavement for his success. there is a saying that says, as long as u can make it it ny, u can make it anywhers in the world….. the point is he was blessed w/ a god given talent, and because uncle sam wanted to prove a point, he made an example out of him. so to the people who have the brain of an amoeba needs to see the bigger picture.
