After serving close to a nine year prison bid stemming from a convicted 1999 assault and gun possession charge, rapper Shyne is ready to make amends with his former boss Sean "Diddy" Combs.
During an exclusive video interview with MTV News the "Bonnie & Shyne" MC (now legally known as Moses Levi) revealed that he reached out to Combs following a dream that he had about their late mutual friend Anthony "Wolf" Jones.
"As far as Puff is concerned, that's been a long time coming," he admitted via Skype."He had reached out to me twice while I was in the pen, but I just wasn't ready for it. 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...Our relationship wasn't just business; it wasn't me just being a rapper on Bad Boy. We had a solid relationship, we had a brotherhood, me, him and Wolf, and I just felt the need to just reach out, because again, he just kept it tall no matter what I said."
While Shyne didn't elaborate on details of their conversation or any future music plans, he did add that the two are scheduled to meet in Paris later this month.
"I just feel real good about moving on with our relationship," he said. "Me and son, we gonna get together in Paris -- I'm in Paris right now. We gonna get together in a couple of weeks, and we gonna sit at the roundtable."
