Shyne Appears In Ukraine To Address Religious Leaders

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Shyne made an appearance at the “Global Winds of Change” conference, were he addressed the role of religion in music and the media.

The “Global Winds of Change: Religions’ Role in Today’s World” conference was organized by Ukrainian member of Parliament and President of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee, Oleksandr Feldman.

Shyne joined a delegation of top leaders from the Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Buddhist faiths in Kiev, Ukraine last week.

The rapper spoke to the audience and explained his goals for the music he is creating.

“I use my music as a way to communicate a message of hope and determination,” Shyne said. “My goal is not to preach to someone to behave in a certain way or observe a certain lifestyle. There are many paths to honor God and I try to speak in simple terms to be a good person.”

Shyne converted to Orthodox Judaism, while serving a 10-year prison sentence for his role in a shootout involving Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jennifer Lopez in 1999.

Oleksandr Feldman told the delegation that Shyne was a perfect example of how religion can co–exist and flourish under any circumstance.

“Shyne shows us how one can thrive in the professional arena without compromising one’s personal value system,” said MP Feldman. “His story is an inspiration to young people throughout the world.”

  • FragrantBodyOilz

    Good job. I have no idea what he is saying, since his music was about guns and drugs but glad he is being positive now. 

  • I respect the hustle…But still, what makes Shyne qualified to
    appear In Ukraine To Address Religious Leaders? Shyne has done nothing but join a new religion so what makes him an different from anyone else?

    • immackulate

      the 1st paragraph of the article/post-up states that Shyne was there to “address the role of religion in music and the media.”

      Why wouldnt he be qualified?

  • If i Ruled the World

    this niggaz crazy…

  • No one is hating on Shyne…We just want to know what kind of credentials he has that makes him a leader? This man had a bad experience in life went to prison read some books and now he is suppose to be closer to GOD than anyone else? This is why I don’t support religious groups because they just take any idiot from the streets and cover up their past, and force us to think that they are Pure…Shyne need to preach that bullshit to himself, he is the one who sold his soul to the devil not us.

    • You judging this man without knowing anything about him.  Is Malcolm X went to prison and found religion was he acting like he is pure?  Shyne never said he was pure or perfect but a changed man, which he is.  Now, did you sell your soul to the devil?

  • j-smooth232

    this nigga is a loser. 50 scared his ass away..haha

    • You just as ignorant as 50. He is real about his religion he aint worried about a fake thug 50.

  • man u go in prison looking one way and u come out of it completely nuts….. the next thing this guy has to do is start his own cult, then i’ll give some serious credit right there

  • C’mon Son!

  • justyouraverage
