According to published reports, on Sunday (Jun 28) Diddy took to Instagram, to offer his support for his former artist, by announcing that Shyne was running for the Belize House of Representatives.
“BELIZE I’m so proud of my brother @shyne_bz and the journey he is on,” Diddy wrote on Instagram. “He is running for the House of Representatives and needs your support. #BadBoy4Life”
Shyne's career at Bad Boy with Diddy was cut short after he was convicted of attempted murder, assault, and reckless endangerment. He was deported to his home country of Belize following his release from prison. Years after cutting ties with Diddy, the mega recording artist still has nothing but the utmost respect and support for him, especially as Shyne enters the world of politics in Belize. Shyne has been nominated by the United Democratic Party to stand as a candidate for the Belize House of Representatives for the electors of Mesopotamia in Belize City; a position previously held by his uncle, Honorable Michael Finnegan. Finnegan, who previously announced that he wouldn’t be seeking re-election back in 2017, expressed at the time that he wanted the “Bad Boyz” rapper to be his replacement.
