Shyne linked with Diddy during his first visit to the U.S. in eleven years.

He was given a visa to meet with various politicians and leaders to strengthen ties between Belize and the U.S. as part of his role as a member of Belize’s House of Representatives. Shyne was deported in 2009 after serving 10 years for his role in a 1999 NYC club shooting while there with Diddy and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. He spoke at length about the incident last year while on Fat Joe’s podcast, and Shyne stated, “I was in fear for my life.”
