Having gained attention due to his eerie vocal similarities to the late great Biggie, Shyne attracted more press after a well-publicized shoot-out in a NYC club. Despite his legal woes and suspicious critics, the young rapper's anticipated debut made serious moves on the charts, thanks to the singles "Bad Boyz" and "That's Gangsta" (which revisits The D.O.C.'s classic "Funky Enough"). Shyne was eventually sent to prison for his role in the shooting, though Def Jam signed him (for a reported $3 million) in 2004. His second album Godfather Buried Alive was released that summer. Meanwhile Shyne is still incarcerated but hoping to get out soon, with help from a new legal team.
