Shyne And Diddy Reconcile Over The Phone
Shyne did a nine year prison bid after being convicted of assault and gun possession in the now infamous Club New York shooting in 1999.
Now, Shyne has buried the hatchet with Sean "Diddy" Combs, who was also charged in the incident but was acquitted. In a Skype call from Paris with MTV News Shyne revealed that he and Diddy recently talked over the phone and plan to meet in the coming weeks.
"As far as Puff is concerned, that's been a long time coming," Shyne exclusively told MTV News of the conversation he and the Bad Boy CEO had earlier this month. "He had reached out to me twice while I was in the pen, but I just wasn't ready for it."
Shyne legally changed his name to Moses Levi while he was in prison and has practiced Judaism for a number of years. He often criticized Diddy calling him a snitch.
"I felt how I felt, I said what I said. In retrospect, when you looked at the way he handled it, he held it down, he wore it," Shyne said of Diddy. "
Shyne wouldn't elaborate on the details of his and Combs' conversation, but he did walk away from the call in a much more positive place. He did reveal that the two plan to have a second conversation, this time in person.
What do you think about them meeting?
