  • Defjam disappointed in Shyne

    High-level sources at Def Jam recently told the LA Times they didn't expect Shyne's new album to pick up steam at this point and are prepared to abandon the project.

    Shyne's album, Godfather Buried Alive, was released on August 10th after an extensive media and marketing blitz including the cover of Vibe's Juice issue, an MTV special and radio and web interviews. But despite the hoopla, the album sold a disappointing 158,000 CDs units the week of his August 10th debut and has sold only 354,000 copies to date.

    For Def Jam, the Shyne album is unhappily a financial failure. The label spent $3 million to sign Shyne after a bidding war last year. An additional $1 million was spent to market and record the record. Based upon record sales revenue alone, the album has only recovered about $1.3 million of the cash invested in it. And with the current downward sales trend - just 15,000 units sold last week - Def Jam is reportedly preparing to abandon the project.

    Shyne stated early on that he wasn't in it for the sales, happy with the opportunity to be relevant and record again after four years in jail.

    "Wherever I go motherfuckers respect me," Shyne told SOHH.com in an exclusive interview. "You have *****s go their whole careers to get that type of respect and admiration. For me just to have one album... shit I don't care what the shit do."

        Actually, I find Shyne's rhymes to be pretty tight. His lyrics talk about shit that actually matters, not just the usual "Oh, I got so much fuckin money." "I got a bunch of hoez" and "I'm gonna pop my gun" bullshit you hear out of all these fake rappers out there. Only thing I didn't like in his new cd was that the producin was real weak. But other than that, Shyne's a great rapper that deserves respect in the music industry. Especially since he didnt sell out like most of these rappers are doin nowadays. He stayed real throughout his whole album, and that at least deserves some recognition.
