These days, James Barnes wonders what will become of "Shyne from Brooklyn." The rapper faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced on April 16. "I know he's catching hell and I know his mother and his grandmother are catching hell," he says. "It's too bad they've only now realized that they shouldn't have entrusted their child to Puffy. First of all, I don't think Shyne was old enough to sign any contract. But sometimes you can't tell black people anything. Shyne had a callous, indifferent personality that you develop once you start hanging around Bad Boy."
