Diddy and Shyne have recently reconnected and met in person for the first time in years.
We previously reported that former Bad Boy rapper Shyne and Diddy met face to face for the first time in years. They linked up on Wednesday (August 25), and in a video, Diddy said, “I’m in my bag right now, crazy, I got my brother here.” Then he proceeded to put the camera on Shyne, and “said, The leader of the opposition in Belize, my brother Shyne.”

Last week, Diddy assisted Shyne, who goes by Moses Barrow, returning to the United States as a diplomat. Back in 2012 it was reported Shyne and Diddy reconciled. The Boombox reports, Shyne said they had an “understanding after speaking over the phone”, and planned to meet in person in the near future, “despite his prior allegations that Diddy was a “snitch.”
During a recent interview with HipHopDX, Shyne spoke about how he forgave Diddy after being sentenced to ten years. He says,
“I think all families that I know on planet Earth have disputes and difficulties, and that’s part of a family,” he said. “And I think you have to have perspective, and you have to have a vision and a focus as to where you’re going. I try not to focus on people and I try to focus on myself. Once I heal and once I get clarity as to my purpose and my mission, then taking the baggage of yesterday with me is not practical. You can’t move forward taking things from 23 years ago with you.
I have purged myself of whatever resentment and whatever blame and whatever anger and frustration and devastation. I’ve rid myself of that because I can’t carry that with me because I need to make room for all these people that I’m trying to help, that have so much baggage and such a load to carry, and I’m trying to lift them. So I can’t lift them up if I’ve got negativity holding me down.
That’s how that came out, just in a different mind-state, just in a different place. And so once you’re in a different place, things open up. And I just think Diddy and I, we were always close. And that’s why it was so devastating and emotions were where they were. If it was just business, then you wouldn’t care and you’d just take it for what it was. So as I said, your family, you disagree, you might not speak for years, but you always love your family. So once you get to a place of forgiveness and a place of healing, then you can move on to where you need to go. Then you and your family can reconnect.”
