Rapper Shyne Taps Super Producer Shawty Redd To Produce His Upcoming Album in Belize
After finishing a nine year stint in a New York State prison and then being deported back to his homeland of Belize , Jamal “Shyne” Barrow wasted no time in getting back to work. We have learned through our sources that Shyne recently commissioned Super Producer Shawty Redd to travel to Belize to executive produce his upcoming album.
Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez spoke briefly about Shyne’s plans to get back in the studio, but was unable to release any specific details. However, Hip Hop Enquirer’s Dennis Byron was contacted by Shawty Redd’s management several weeks earlier requesting that he fly out to Belize and capture the collaboration of Shyne and Shawty Redd working in the studio.
“His management contacted me several weeks ago about flying me to Belize to capture the behind the scenes of Shawty Redd working with Shyne, so of course I jumped at the opportunity. I had already photographed Shawty earlier in his career and I was also at Shyne’s trial in New York City nine years ago so it’s like a reunion”
Demetrius “Shawty Redd” Stewart was most recently named one of the top music producers in the south by the New York Times.
