It looks like Miss Info was right! Shyne has signed to Def Jam Records. LA Reid took a trip down to Belize to make the announcement himself.

‘I have come here to stand by Shyne and to officially kick off our partnership with Island Def Jam Music Group and Gangland recrds and so it is really an honour to be here, really very special place. I am here because great people are worthy of travelling many many miles for it and I come here to say that your country is great and I hope you guys know that this is a great man from your country who deserves this kind of respect and who deserves this kind of support. So that is why we are here.’ -LA Reid

Shyne spoke on his new move as well:

‘It is an honour and a pleasure, not just for me but for Belize. Chairman Reid is on the level of Berry Gordy, Clive Davis, the biggest music men in the history of music, and so to have a partnership with Gangland Records and Island/Def Jam is incredible for me.’

I wonder what kind of music Shyne will put out now that he’s got a record deal. Do you think Def Jam was a good move for Shyne Po?
