Four months after being released from prison and then deported to Belize, Shyne has reportedly signed a seven-figure deal with Def Jam Records.

Miss Info reports that the label won a bidding war over the rapper, whose 2004 album, Godfather Buried Alive, was released on Def Jam while he was in jail.

Now, kudos to the man for locking down a deal, but in 2010, who signs seven-figure deals, aside from Drake???

While there has been a lot of buzz over Shyne since his release, is it enough to warrant a label doing that kind of deal for an artist who released one platinum album 10 years ago, a follow-up that wasn’t worth the plastic it was pressed on, and… well… there was that verse on that DJ Khaled record that leaked a few weeks ago that was doo-doo…

And how is Shyne gonna promote his album in the United States, a country he was deported from?!???!??

This whole thing has FAIL written all over it.

The rumor mill has been buzzing for awhile that Def Jam head, L.A. Reid, was on his way out, and if this Shyne project flops, I believe that will be the final nail in Reid’s coffin.

Def Jam couldn't do much with him then. What makes them think they can do something with him now?

if that Khaled verse is any indicator, Shyne is out of things to say or even an interesting way to say them

you know things are bad when Khaled takes your verse off one of his albums, have you heard some of the clowns he lets rap on his tracks?

Christ. I have to stop falling victim to morbid curiosity. I feel like someone took a shit in my ears.

you guys are way off base, his first album was dope and dude used to have some spit ability, but he just doesn't have it any more....rappers are like NFL running backs, when they're over, they're over.....i listened to his verses over Rude Boy, Unthinkable, and Over and it just isn't there and that original joint that Flex tried to play the other night was just as wack, and this is coming from someone who was hoping dude would have some real shit to say when he got out

I'm surprised this hasn't been his entire game plan for his return to music. I'd be milking the hell out of that marketing potential. I'd be writing diss tracks, starting beefs left and right, even resorting to pissing in the lobby of Bad Boy Entertainment. To be honest, the whole club incident is all he is really remembered for other than "Bad Boyz".

I never liked Shyne. I use to be like, this dude sounds vaguely like Biggie...so fuck Puffy. Then I heard Guerilla Black. Maybe they could form a group called the Big Impostas under the aliases "Terrible" and "Spot-On".

I agree that Shyne sounded a lot like Big when he first started out, but as his career went on, he did start to find his own voice, there are still songs from Shyne & Godfather Buried Alive that get play to this day......he attempted to diss 50 in one of those freestyles, but it was weak and just a variant on Jay's diss of him on The Life & Times Of S. Carter

Vybez got a point...this just means he didn't bother honing his skills while he was in the bing...guess he thought that serving time was cred. enough to put out an album and spit some B.S. He gotta first start taking heads...preferrably the ones that put him in there in the first place...on record of course.

But Ghost...I've heard his first joint...and i gotta say...i was more comfortable sitting through Foxxy Brown's China Doll...than Shyne's debut project. His best cuts were the singles he put out.
