Former Sean "Diddy" Combs protegee Shyne touched down in his native Belize on Wednesday(October 28) escorted by U.S. Marshals. The rapper was deported after serving over 9 years in prison for his involvement in the 1999 Club New York shooting that left 3 injured. While Shyne spends time regrouping in his homeland, politically connected Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree will continue to work on his behalf on his immigration status here in the States. Shyne's uncle, Michael Finnegan, spoke on his nephew's immediate plans:

"Shyne is home. He wants to say how happy he is to be home and to be a free man. He would love to have a conversation with the media but because he was legally advised by Professor Ogletree, he must not speak to the media because he doesn't want to prejudice his situation with the US government or with the Belize government. So he asked me to ask you that he does not want to disrespect you the media, but please to understand what is going on. You could see the tears in his eyes as they hugged and the romantic situation in there especially with his Grandmother and with his father, with his younger brother Anwar, they hugged and did not want to let go of each other."

"His residence at my place is two weeks away from completion so he has rented a complete floor at the Radisson Fort George Hotel. So every room on a floor was taken by him whether he will use it or not. He said that after going through the eight and a half years he has gone through, he needs some privacy, he needs not to be around anybody, he needs just to sit down in isolation and contemplate his life. And I think that we need to respect that. If you notice, he has lost an extreme amount of weight."

There's no official word yet on Shyne's plans for music, but purportedly, the once fledgling hip-hop star will try to re-launch his career in Europe.
