Shyne

Even before the fateful 1999 shooting that landed him a nine-year prison bid, Shyne was no stranger to controversy. Many criticized Po for his voice's similarity to B.I.G.'s; his Brooklyn upbringing, Bad Boy Records deal and DJ Clark Kent cosign also eerily mirrored Frank White's backstory. But the uproar didn't stop Shyne from hitting platinum with his self-titled debut in 2000, or from signing a reported million-dollar deal with Def Jam upon his release.
