By Shyne Barrow: Sixteen years ago on August 10, 2004 I released the number 1 Rap/R&B album on the Billboard charts!
I find it strange the people that talk about my one mistake I made 21 years ago and always leave out my great unprecedented accomplishments!
People will call me a deportee but forget to call me a Grammy award winner, they always forget the number 1 billboard album, the number 2 billboard album, the tens of millions of albums sold.
To all the deportees, to all the people who have been arrested or convicted of a crime especially the youths on the south side of Belize, don’t let anyone condemn you to your past. You can change! You can rehabilitate and redeem yourselves!
Far too often some in society want to ridicule and stigmatize people who have made mistakes, we as a society should encourage people to do better, we should encourage people that there is hope rather than judge people for falling short!
I pray that I am used as an instrument to inspire all people but especially those in MESOPOTAMIA on the Southside!
I hope to inspire people to do better! To dream bigger! To let go of your past mistakes! Embrace the new you! Embrace a commitment to change for the better! Embrace your greatness!
Don’t be a victim of your past! You have the power to determine your present and your future!
If no one will believe in you, you must believe in yourself, if no one will give you a second chance you owe it to yourself to give yourself a second chance, to be better and do better!
Just as the title of my classic chart topping album, I was buried alive but I dug myself out of the grave to live again to sell millions more albums, then get married and start a family with my incredible wife and adorable daughter. Now am on my way to the House of Representatives to legislate on behalf of my MESOPOTAMIA FAMILY so I can give them more land, more houses, more jobs, more scholarships, higher minimum wage etc
You can do it too! You can write, edit and rewrite your script for the life you want, the life you deserve!
As I celebrate the 16th anniversary of my buried alive album, I celebrate you!
I celebrate your ability to dig yourselves out of the graves of your past and LIVE your GREATNESS!!!
