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.”

Oh yeah, what a cool representative, some of that lingo should really raise the profile.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

I am certainly impressed with Shyne's command of the English language LOL

Since he announced after he came back to Belize from a US prison that he was changing his name to Leviy or something like that, it sounds like he has changed his mind.

As a musician in the hip hop world comments like that are, I suppose, the norm. As an official representative of Belize they're a different matter.

Incidentally for those who might not know he's the son of the Prime Minister and the guy who alledgedly took the fall for Puff Daddy in a NY Night Club shooting.
