The rapper thinks it could be 'a Central-American Dubai'...
Rapper Shyne been talking about his dreams to draw investment into his homeland Belize.
He told XXL Magazine: “I hope that I can make entertainment that will have a mass appeal, allowing me to generate the resources where I could build better housing, build up the infrastructure, get businessmen to come down and invest, build hotels, build restaurants, just totally develop the country.
"Probably take like maybe a couple billion dollars to really get it started. And success is magnetic, so if I’m touring all across the world and my shit is jumping, then muthaf*ckas gon’ want to be a part of that Shyne experience. And part of that Shyne experience is being in Belize.
“And that’s what I hope I can do. The exposure, attracting the tourism, but more so being an attraction, being a national treasure. And through my relationships in business and the different billionaire dudes I know, getting them to see that we can make this a Central-American Dubai and that there are more jobs for everybody, there’s better education for everybody, just a total overhaul of the country and industrializing it and modernizing it.”
