Shyne In Music and Politics

Updated: March 14, 2017

Shyne Barrow has been in Belize for the last eight years or so since he was deported from the United States.  Shortly after his return to Belize he was named the Music Ambassador for Belize.  The 37-year-old rapper has taken much heat as he occupies that seat with accusations of being non-functional.  Prime Minister Dean Barrow spoke to those accusations as well as his son’s expressed desire to enter the political arena.


In his report for 2016, Shyne noted several areas in the music industry where he has aided local artists in attending events abroad as well as motivational and entrepreneurial classes for the local artists and musical competitions.
