Saying Shyne's "King of NYS" is horrible would be a compliment.

Shyne’s transition from prisoner to citizen and finally back to recording artist has been a weird one.
"I never had hope, until I sold dope.
Believe it or not, during an exclusive interview with MTV, an oddly-braided Shyne Po surprisingly went into detail about how he'd just gotten off the phone with his former mentor Diddy.
Apparently L.A. Reid is out at Def Jam. And the harbinger of doom himself, Shyne, is here to tell us why. Shoot up the club, Urban Daily: You’re talking about Lucian Grainge who replaced Doug Morris.
Two quick confessions: 1) I haven't listened to more than 20 combined seconds of any new Shyne material since his release.
Kanyeezy has the entire 'Net in the palm of his hands. He joins Twitter, visits their offices (as well as Facebook, XXL and most recently, Rolling Stone) and everybody takes notice.
Due to Hip-Hop journalism's questionable past when it comes to ethics, people tend to jump to conclusions like "[insert label here] must have paid you guys off to get that review/feature". It's a knee-jerk reaction from disgruntled commenters that even we at TSS have to endure sometimes. I think it's an easy way out and cheap trick to blame things you don't agree with on bribery or industry politricks, and I know that a credible, honorable magazine like XXL would never stoop to anything like that.

Here at TSS, we get a lot of music submissions. We go over them all with a fine-toothed comb. As is customary in this line of work, a lot of the things we get are mediocre to bad. Generally, we pass over these songs to give shine to the material one or a few of us genuinely enjoys. We don't go around bashing submissions. That’s not our style. If these songs would have come to us from any other artist, I would have listened, said “wow, that’s really bad,” and keep moving. However, these tracks aren’t from any artist. These songs are from someone who has just been signed to a (reported) million-dollar contract.
The music industry wants you to believe that we, the Internetters, are the reason they're losing money.
Shyne makes his long-awaited return to audio after being buried alive.
