Shyne recently announced that he was considering taking on a second record deal with Cash Money Records, in addition to the one he already has with Def Jam.
He plans to release a new album, Gangland, through his rumored seven-figure deal with Def Jam in December, and says that another album, Messiah, may follow soon after.
“I’m done,” Shyne said of Gangland, which is also the name of Shyne’s imprint. “I’m just making albums at this point. I’m on my fifth album. I’m not sure, me and Baby [Birdman] been talking. We been talking about doing the Cash Money thing where I put one album out on Def Jam, distributed by Def Jam, and Baby [will] distribute one album on Cash Money.”
The LP on Cash Money would be called Messiah.
“I might do that. I’m not sure,” Shyne said about coming with the Cash Money back project. “We’re still finishing the fine points and negotiating that. Maybe I’ll come with something six months later, [maybe] every six months. I’ve got so much to say, you dig? I don’t think I can answer all the questions on one album. So I definitely think we can put out two different albums on the same day at the end of the year, then come back with a third one or another double set six months later. Get all this s**t off my chest.”
