Shyne’s Gangland Gets a Release Date

Everyone's favorite devout Jew ex-con rapper has a confirmed release date for his post-prison comeback album: According to a press release, Shyne's Gangland will be out May 17 via Def Jam. He's also dropped a new single, "King David," that won't necessarily convince anyone that he's remembered how to rap. The human-interest angle here is certainly compelling — but, unless Shyne spends the time between now and the day his album is due listening to "Bad Boyz" on a loop, is this really a good idea?
