Former Bad Boy rapper Shyne has been living in Israel as an orthodox Jew since his release from prison in 2010. Shyne explained just how differently he viewed himself, and the hip hop image that he came from, since his religious conversion.
He's completed two unreleased albums, Gangland and Messiah, which he describes as 'totally philosophical and sophisticated.'
"No misogyny. None of that deranged stuff I used to be into," he says.
"I don't even want to be a rapper,"he adds. "I don't listen to that music. I'm a musician. I'd rather be like Bob Marley or Leonard Cohen, one of those guys."
