Hip Hop Artist Shyne has been through a lot these past few years. From being a top Rapper on the Infamous Bad Boy Records, to serving part of a 10 year Prison sentence, to converting to Judaism, he now looks at resurrecting his music career and even dabble in Politics. During the Reggae Sumfest festivities he visited Jamaica, made his presence felt, and held a conversation with Winford Williams of Onstage TV. Here he reflected on his past, working with DJ/Producer Supa Hype, his upbringing, his Father Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize and looking to follow in his footsteps in Politics, showing love to Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton, and more. He also joined Barrington Levy last night at Reggae Sumfest and delivered his hit singles. Looking forward to hearing more from Shyne and we at 13thStreetPromotions.com will be sure to keep you posted. Check out the Interview below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Reggae Sumfest Dancehall night was a success for fresh on the scene, hit maker, Don Andre. He celebrated the top Dancehall collaboration of the year alongside Ding Dong and Chi Ching Ching with a well-received high-energy performance. He also performed his new track Jog honoring Usain Bolt while flying the Jamaican flag high.
Later in the show Spice hurled insults at the fast-rising star. Don Andre is very displeased that she used his record in her set in an attempt to publicly insult his style and sexual preference. According to the artiste this is what happens with success, there is always someone who will try to bring you down.
“Anywhere there is success there is always a hater trying to stop it. Tom Cruise is in high rotation in several countries and the most popular Dancehall move right now. I just got an award from veteran sound system Stone Love to endorse that.
Spice needs to just leave me alone and work on getting an up to date number one song like, Tom Cruise. Her last number one was two years ago. Right now she’s working desperately in the streets for a song to hit like Tom Cruise.
Spice needs to find back her gear; she’s running out of steam. She should focus on her botched assets and figure out how she’s going to get them corrected and leave me out of her loose arguments,” Don Andre says.
Don Andre is billed to appear at Philadelphia Jerk Festival on August 28th in Fairmount Park.
