Shyne made his visit back to the U.S. after being deported following a 10-year sentence for a club shooting in 1999 involving Diddy and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.
Shyne has since won a seat in Belize’s House of Representatives in 2020, and he’s in the U.S. for the first time in over a decade to help strengthen relationships with his home country of Belize. While in the U.S., Shyne made a stop at his good friend Fat Joe’s 51st birthday party, which took place at a rooftop garden at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Fat Joe announced Shyne before he took the stage, and he told the crowd, “He only came for me guys, he’s on a political visit.”
Shyne then addressed Fat Joe, telling him, “I’m the leader of the House of Representatives, and they call me ‘honorable,’ but you’ve been honorable for all the years I’ve known you. The highest integrity, the highest ethics, and I love you. Happy Birthday.”
