Jewish Rapper Shyne Upset With President Obama

The Jewish rapper Shyne isn’t happy with President Obama, because he believes the president has done nothing to help his bid to return to the United States after a 2009 deportation.

Shyne, who was born in Belize and is now known as Moses Levi, served 9 years in a U.S. jail after being convicted of attempted murder following an incident at a New York City club in 1999.  He was deported to Belize following his release.

Now, as he continues his fight to return to the United States, the Jewish convert says Obama knows who he is but hasn’t done anything to help his cause, and therefore, he’s supporting Mitt Romney (he can’t vote, because he’s not a U.S. citizen).

“He knows who I am, he knows what’s happenin’,” Shyne said of President Obama according to eurweb. “He’s always talkin’ about he listens to hip-hop and his daughter listens to hip-hop. He knows who Shyne is, he knows I’m deported.”

Shyne spent much of 2010 in Israel practicing Orthodox Judaism and studying Torah.  He also collaborated with Matisyahu on the track “Messiah”.
“I should be in America in a couple of months. We working to try and get this visa,” he said. “Obama is playing games, he frontin’, he better do the right thing.”
