Ahhh, just read it yourself. Found on SOHH:
Iâ€™m definitely trying to get with Cash Money but the Def Jam thing is a question mark right now. Iâ€™ve been fixing to get up out of there for a while now because [Island Def Jam CEO] L.A. Reid donâ€™t care about hip-hop. The people up there, they donâ€™t know what theyâ€™re doing. When you donâ€™t have a strong leader, where you gonna go? They donâ€™t care about hip-hop music. You give them a hip-hop record with an R&B singer, you â€œmightâ€ have a chance. They donâ€™t care. You got The Roots, Ghostface, Nas, probably the best hip-hop roster you could imagine and they do nothing. L.A. Reid doesnâ€™t want nothing to do with rappers â€” itâ€™s nothing personal, I donâ€™t have nothing personal with dude but he makes it known he doesnâ€™t care about hip-hop. So Iâ€™m really interested in seeing whoâ€™s gonna replace him. Because I know heâ€™s been replaced â€” so I wanna find out whoâ€™s gonna take his spot before I decide what Iâ€™m gonna do with Def Jamâ€¦The music that we make is responsible for pop, R&B, everything thatâ€™s jumping right now.
They gotta care about [what we’ve done] the way Jimmy Iovine cares about that, the way Lyor Cohen cares about that,â€ Shyne added. â€œIâ€™m definitely not gonna scrap everything I recorded. I put in so much, Iâ€™ve come so far. From the first record I did when I got out to the new records Iâ€™ve done while going to all these different countries, I ainâ€™t scrapping nothing. I paid for that. Iâ€™m not signed to Def Jam anyway, I just need to find another distributor. I might just have Cash Money do everything. Who knows? Thatâ€™s the beauty about being in the business for yourself. You can decide where you want to go and what you want to do.â€
