20 Years Ago Shyne Released Debut Album Eponymous


Shyne is the self-titled debut album by rapper Shyne. It was released by Sean "P. Diddy" Combs 'Bad Boy Records on September 26, 2000. Shyne had been hyped prior to the album's release as similar in style and delivery to the deceased Notorious B.I.G.. Shyne had also drawn unfavorable media attention for being convicted in June 2000 for his involvement in a nightclub shooting. Shyne was incarcerated at the time of this album's release. The album peaked at number 5 on the Billboard200. It sold very well, eventually achieving Gold status. It contained fewer guest artists than most Bad Boy releases. The singles from the album, "Bad Boyz," "Bonnie & Shyne" (which both feature Barrington Levy), and "That's Gangsta," were only moderate hits. via Wikipedia
