SHYNE VS DIDDY
Rapper SHYNE is back on the warpath.. Shyne just released a new diss track aimed at diddy called You’re Welcome.. featuring lines like
“I need to know, how my co-d called witness to sacrifice me/ Just so he can get away free, this does not comply with the streets,” referencing his and co-defendant Diddy’s 2000 trial, which followed their involvement in the infamous 1999 Club New York shooting.
THE JUICE WITH JEM (FRI, Aug 24)
Shyne was convicted of assault and gun possession, and then served nearly nine years in prison. During his time behind bars, the Belize-born rapper gave a number of interviews in which he expressed his distaste for Combs, the man who signed him to his first record deal with Bad Boy in the late 1990s. Shyne was released from prison in 2009, and later deported. Shyne is now claiming that diddy was the person who pushed to have him deported even though he promised to help him get back to the states.
The two were said to have buried the hatchet and were even spotted hanging out together in Paris.
Shyne now says that Diddy has fallen back on promises he made to help the rapper get a U.S. visa and return to America.
“Homeboy did me dirty, he knows that; he apologized,” says Shyne. “He’s said he’s gonna spend the rest of his life helping me get my life back, so how you don’t help your man come back to America?!”
The rapper said that Diddy offered him money, which he claimed to have turned down, saying he only wanted his former friend’s support. Shyne also believes that Combs should help out the mother of his former bodyguard, Anthony “Wolf” Jones, who was also involved in the Club New York shooting and was later murdered in an unrelated incident.
“Don’t give me any money — I don’t need it — but take care of Ms. Jones. [Diddy] gave her $10K when I started talking to him, but that was it,” Shyne said. “But while we were in Paris, he spent half a million on his chick, Cassie. … If it weren’t for Wolf, if it weren’t for me, things would be very different. There would be no Cîroc deal, he wouldn’t be worth close to a billion.”

Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong faces being stripped of his titles and banned from cycling for life after announcing he will not contest charges levelled by the US Anti-Doping Agency.
In a statement, Armstrong said he was “finished with this nonsense” and insisted he is innocent – but did not want to spend any further effort clearing his name. “There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, ‘Enough is enough’. For me, that time is now. “I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999.”
However, Armstrong’s achievements are set to be wiped from the record books.
Asked what actions USADA intended to impose, spokeswoman Annie Skinner said in an email: “A loss of all results from 1 August, 1998 and a lifetime ban from participating any sport sanctioned by a signatory to the WADA Code.” Armstrong, 40, has always denied claims he ever used performance-enhancing drugs during his career and has never failed a test. “I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999” – Lance Armstrong
Armstrong, charged by USADA in June, sought a temporary restraining order against the agency’s legal action but that was dismissed in a federal court in Austin, Texas on Monday.
His former team-mates, including Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton, have accused Armstrong of doping. Both Landis and Hamilton have also been punished for doping.
Armstrong, who in 2011 retired from cycling for a second time, was the most successful rider in the history of the Tour de France, winning each year from 1999 to 2005.
His story was made all the more remarkable by the fact his triumphs came after beating cancer.
