shyne to be paroled soon

shyne

Word has it that Shyne, the former Bad Boy artist, that was sent to prison for he involvement in the now infamous club shooting in New York that also involved P. Diddy. Diddy got off clean, while Shyne was sentenced to 10 years, which, needless to say, has caused friction amongst the two. Anyway, it has been reported that during the trial and sentencing, no sort of negotiations surrounding parole were brought up and so now Shyne maybe eligble for parole in October. It is said that he is to be set free on October 6, but no details about the circumstances of his parole are known at this time. For the full story, visit Hip Hop DX. Shyne has many supporters, so it will be interesting to see what will happen when he gets out. I’m sure everybody is wishing him the best.

kanye west is offically a fashion intern

kanye-west-spin

Kanye West actually did exactly what he said he would and has become a fashion intern at the Gap. He is apparently working with Patrick Robinson and at the end of the internship, it is speculated (but not confirmed) that Kanye will be getting his own line through the company. One source says that the Louis Vutton Don is taking his work very seriously and has known to have been in the office as late (or early depending upon how you see it) as 2 in the morning.

It is good to see that Kanye is actually taking this seriously and not just acting like most rappers who just jump into fashion because it’s trendy. He is taking this really seriously. I would also assume that this would humble him a little more (it’s a good thing those King of Pop statements weren’t true); at least until he gets his clothing line lol. No, seriously, most other rappers that decide they want to go into fashion should really have a passion and perfect the craft like Kanye is trying to do. Props for this.

18769939

As many have probably heard, Baatin, one of the founders of the much respected group Slum Village, has been confirmed dead by the group’s manager. There has still been no information released as to the reason for his death. He has had a number health complications in the past, severely enough that they caused him to leave the group for a period of time after becoming very ill on tour. He was set to rejoin the group and they were supposed to put out an album in September. Many people started spreading RIP messages and condolences over the internet on August 1. Hip hop will truly miss him. Here is one of the full stories.
