Shyne Covers XXL (September 2010)

Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ. Despite the string of underwhelming tunes, Shyne covers one half of XXL‘s September issue. The other features Young Jeezy. In an excerpt given to MTV, Po speaks on shootin’ the club up a decade ago.

“In my life, when I make decisions to roll, I roll. And I don’t give a fuck what the consequences are. If I’ma defend myself, I’ma defend myself. If somebody tryna kill or hurt one of my partnas or my comrades, that’s with me, there is no, ‘Yo,’ or, ‘Damn, well, if I pull this shit out, this is what’s gonna happen.’ No! I don’t wanna die. I don’t wanna be laid up in no fucking hospital with a tube runnin’ through me, hurtin’ and sufferin’. Pain is real. So you know what? I’m not doin’ that. You gon’ do that, motherfucker. You gon’ roll and say hi to Satan, not me. And that’s that. Your survival instincts tell you to protect and preserve, and you deal with whatever later.”

  • Mr.Ireland

    Sounds like he is kinda saying that he is so real with his “partnas”, that if i were to happen again, Dopey, excuses me, Shyne would do the same thing all over again! Yeah right. I believe you but hundreds wouldn’t!

    Last Real Rapper Alive?? *smh* Come on son!

  • I’m rooting for Shyne, but I’ve come to terms with the fact that his next album will most likely be garbo.

  • I’m a little disappointed Shyne didn’t bring out his Harley for the cover shoot.

  • mac DIESEL


    …..IN TERMS OF WUT???


  • SilkCityP

    I still don’t understand Shyne’s explanation of his whole switch in his voice & style… B/c that’s what makes his new music terrible… But nobody can throw shots at his credentials… Dude took a stretch bid, he is a real nigga for that!

  • Ben

    Yeah that Harley picture was awful. Shyne’s first album was a banger.#2,#3, #7, and #12 were my shit back in junior high.

    nigga when you was in jail time didn’t stop.. we moved on. Sorry I have to be the one to tell ya.. but niggas ain’t checkin for you anymore.. truth be told niggas wasn’t really checkin for you in mass before you got tossed in the pokey. Before you just sounded like puff was trying to replace BIG.. now you sound like you took to many cocks to the throat in jail. And the shit you sayin (lyrics) ain’t really blowin no one away.. if they were they would overlook the voice thing alittle.. 9yrs in the pin you shoulda picked up a pen.. cuz your lines are forgettable right now.

  • serpentor

    damn puffy, your fucked up for that one. of course i wasn’t there, but i can get a general idea of what happened that night……*tsk tsk, you have been a bad boy*….sometimes i wonder to myself, (and i do this from time to time) what kind of vampire shit , would you have done to fucked B.I.G over if he was still alive, huh?? what kinda snake shit you might have pulled on him. you did it to everyone else, B.I.G wasn’t going to be the exception, was he?!? *bad boy=bad business*

    I’m rooting 4 him

    some 1 needs 2 send him a few boxes of gear tho, no more Arnie lookalikes

  • Big Mak

    The last real rapper alive?? That a friggin joke? Shynes no where near a ”Real Rapper”. Neither is Jeezy, just cos they say they are doesnt mean they are, look Ross, he thinks hes a drug dealer but hes just a cop.

    Real rapper my ass, hasnt been a real rapper since Pac passed.

  • Clos1881

  • I RUN THIS..

    WTF…iD RATHER read about Game being Bipolar than this shit…Def Jam Paid for this cover. No way in hell any SANE EDITOR would give Shyne a cover.NOT IN THIS LIFE TIME..Shyne cant even rap.
    The folks upstairs at Harris Pub are really desperate for money. No amount advertising or Def Jam covers can bring back or recreate the buzz Def Jam had in the 90’s or the buzz Interscope had with G-Unit from 2002-2007.

  • unconform_normality

    Shyne will Prevail…watch.

  • shyne-bitch

    You fuckin idiots! dont talk about shit if you dont know shit…shyne really is the last real rapper alive. hes a real respected G in brooklyn. and all over the world.he ran blocks as a fuckin teenager..he really did what he said…he took fuckin 10 years cuz he stook to the code. he never ratted..he never stepped onto the wittness stand @ fuckin 22 years old!????? why the fuck do you think out of alllll the beefs 50 CENT had back in the day, the one he had with shyne he never pursued!? shyne destroyed him on his diss track “For the record” where he spits from his phone @ clinton correctional…50 never responded! because if you listen closely to that track, shyne brings out the real boo boo jackson who really isnt who he says he is…why the fuck do you think he got deported? of course diddy has major connections in the new york government…hes very affraid..and im not even gonna keep writing…cuz Shyne will prevail…despite his voice change, his lyrics are still there and hes a changed man…

  • Lil ghetti

    bout time yall put a real nigga on yall cover. Bet’s a good dude dat laid down like a real g. It’s wasnt worth it but he stuck his chest out

  • Jaz

    Agreeable.. their is a change in his voice.. befor anyting.. 1st u have to understand the basic knowledge of the atmosphere hes been put forth towards.. siting in a 4by4 cell.. For 10 years!!!!!!!!!!! Can u place urself in those shoes..? its hard to ewn begin to see urself in that position.. theres no studio preparatio…n for 10 years.. theres no speech speech rehabilitationin for 10 years.. Most his links are cut from the outside world.. his creation to his imagination are very limited and then on top of all whens done serving his 10 years of time.. he gets deported to a 3 world country.. to add where his father is the prime minister of the country.. daz serious! and yet along anyone know the real behind the scenes.. his stress and his personal matters.. that could be a huge change of factor in a person life.. for me a person who stands by that code or ethic and principal.. shows alot in the person character.. to give up 10 years of ur life.. thats more den nuff for my ears to keen my attention towards his music.. up or down.. A certian truth that has been missing in the aspect of life in around the game.. only the man himself knows what hes going threw.. time will speak for its self.. it’ll shyne.

  • Hey not to go off topic but can anyone give me overview of. New York Car Insurance Reform 295 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10007 (646) 351-0824 They can be down the block from me. I was wondering once they were a good insurance agency. I need to get coverage, it is regulations you know, but I need to have a good price price plus I’d prefer friendly service.
