When it comes to putting an album or any type of artistic effort together, it is widely known that you should only put your best work on the project. But, what happens when the public doesn’t necessarily like it ? For returning rapper Shyne, that answer could be little to no sales — something he says he can care less about. “I’m comfortable with [my new style]. I figured it out, but I’m not a communist. People want that s**t, but I can’t give it to them in the old way… I’m not no f**king magician,” Shyne says of negative comments related to his first single “Messiah” and other tracks purported to lead his anticipated album. “You gotta make that s**t… It’s about having character and integrity. I don’t care if I only sell one album.” Last month, a number of fans waited patiently for the rapper’s return, only to find a completely different approach — something many were not happy about. According to Shyne, they should be grateful for the changes he made. “People should be happy that I changed… I was monotonous and angry,” he tells Hip Hop DX. “I can’t give them that old s**t. That anger you heard in the booth was really me. It was like listening to someone with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.” Shyne is due to release his first album in over 5 years Summer 2010 — will you be picking up a copy ?
