Recently freed rapper Shyne was denied entry into the United Kingdom early yesterday morning (February 4).

The rapper attempted to enter London via Cancun, Mexico, because he cannot enter the United States.

He was deported from the United States and sent to Belize upon his release from prison, after serving eight years in prison for a high profile shooting involving Sean “Diddy” Combs and then girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.

According to reports, Shyne was turned away when he arrived at the airport in the United Kingdom because of problems with his travel documents.

He was heading to the UK to record songs for his upcoming album, the majority of which is reportedly being recorded in Belize.

A number of artists have already been to the island nation to record with Shyne, who was released from the Woodbourne Correctional Facility in October of 2009.

Shyne is featured on the new single “All My Life,” which features Mavado and Akon and is taken from DJ Khaled’s upcoming album Victory.
