In an interview with Allhiphop, Shyne recalls meeting 50 Cent in 1999 while ghostwriting for Diddy's Forever album. The outspoken rapper states that at the time 50 Cent was hiding from Irv Gotti and had an order of protection from the police. Shyne goes on to claim 50 was responsible for giving police information that would lead to Irv Gotti's indictment and Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff's life sentence in prison.
Shyne continues to make waves with some controversial interviews. Do you believe he's credible or is this just a ploy to get more press? [HHDX]
“When I met [50 Cent] he was writing raps for Diddy on Forever. This was after Gotti and them poked him up in the Hit Factory and he ran to the cops and got a order of protection. He was walking around with a group of police, NYPD was holding him down. I swear to God he was in Daddy’s House in the lounge and he had security. He hadn’t sold one record. He hadn’t even put an album out...50 Cent was nobody, nobody knew who he was. He was hiding from Iv Gotti and Murder Inc. He’s the reason that Irv got indicted. He’s the reason that Kenneth Supreme McGriff is in prison for the rest of his life.”
