CaribWorldNews, BELMOPAN, Belize, Sat. Nov. 28, 2009: Moses Michael Levivy, better known as the Rapper Shyne, is sharing his experience in a New York prison with prisoners in Belize.
The rapper, now the most famous deportee, broke away from `hibernation` from his penthouse at the renaissance tower in Belize City and visited the Hattieville Prison on Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., Thursday, where he spoke to about 400 inmates.
His visit was mainly to inspire the inmates. He told them that he never thought that a `young dude` who had a hard life in Curassow Street would reach the highest level in America culture.
He said that he made US$30 million, and said he did records with Usher and Justin Timberlake among others while shooting a video while in jail.
`Anything is possible,` Levivy said.
He urged the prisons that they must not sit in prison and cry but plan their lives out as he did.
The son of Belize Prime Minister, Dean Barrow told the inmates during his brief visit to the Prisons that he did not come behind the prison walls to preach to them, but that he hoped to impart some of his knowledge and experience he gained first hand while living behind a U.S. prison wall.
Levivy was deported to Belize a month ago.
But he urged that there can be no excuses. Shyne has not disclosed what plans he has for the future. – By Oscar Ramjeet/Special To CWNN
