Former Bad Boy rapper Shyne is trying to gain hip-hop’s interest in his fledgling career. His latest attempt at relevance comes in the form of Shyne calling rapper Kendrick Lamar‘s album good kid, m.A.A.d city trash. After being attacked and ridiculed by Black Twitter, Shyne called in to New York City radio show The Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show to defend himself.
Shyne feels Kendrick Lamar has the potential to deliver a classic album, but says good kid, m.A.A.d city is garbage because K. Dot has been fed to the hype machine. Basically, he’s saying everybody likes Kendrick’s album because we were told we should. When he was asked to further explain his thought process, Shyne stated, “I ain’t starting no trouble. Listen, y’all live in the United States of America. We don’t live in the United States of Aftermath, Jimmy Iovine doesn’t pay me, I can say whatever I want. I’m not talking reckless. I said the young boy got potential and I said he was talented, but the album is trash. That’s tough love.”

“What I said wasn’t not nice, I didn’t attack him as an individual, I didn’t say anything disrespectful. It’s trash! I don’t really listen to these rappers, but I heard him on a few joints and I was like, shorty’s nice. … So when he was coming out with an album, I was like, I’ma hear more of that,” Shyne went on.
After calling the beats on good kid, m.A.A.d city terrible, Shyne said he felt it was his responsibility to say what he said because he doesn’t want Kendrick to become a victim of his own hype. “I feel bad for him because everybody’s gassing him right now, everyone’s on him. He on fire because of that Interscope machine, he’s on fire because of that Dr. Dre machine. He’s nice, but that’s a lot of hype. All I’m saying is, to show y’all I’m not a hater, 50 Cent delivered. I never had nothing positive to say about him, but he delivered. He lived up to the hype.”
Am I the only one that believes Shyne needs to sit his 90s-has-been ass all the way down? we didn’t think so.
