Rap's most wanted emcee for the past decade Shyne made his first public words since being released from an upstate New York correctional facility where he served close to a ten year bid. Speaking to students at his one time school in Belize City, Wesley College, Shyne says he no longer glorifies the gangsta lifestyle that landed him in jail and his career in jeopardy.

"In life, you are what you are and this is what I am I don't want to be like Michael Jordan. I want to be like Moses or King David or King Solomon. Those are the guys I aspire to be like. I didn't want to be like the kingpin on my block; I wanted to be like the guy who parted the sea, that's why I chose that name."

The rapper known as Moses says fans shouldn't worry about the direction of his music as it will be as pure as ever

"I make music about life. One of the greatest musicians was Bob Marley. There was nothing misogynistic about him. But his music, he talked about some harsh realities some time. He was tough. I would like to make that type of contribution, that kind of Marvin Gaye contribution, you dig? But at the same time we curse, at the same time life is violent, life is troublesome sometimes — so don't expect my music to be sanitized. I am just going to talk about what's going on in the world."
