Shyne spoke with XXL about squashing his beef with Diddy at fashion week in Paris, France. He says the situation could have gotten to Biggie/Tupac levels if things weren’t squashed. So instead he squashed the beef and he asks what if Biggie and Tupac would have reconciled?

“You can’t overstate the cultural significance of what Shyne and Diddy reconciling means,” wrote Shyne. “You know I’m about it when it comes to them hammers, thus unfortunately this could have ended like Tupac and B.I.G. But what if Tupac and B.I.G ended like this and reconciled?

“Let’s celebrate this moment as a historical event and a victory for hip-hop and Afro and Latin American men trained to exterminate each other,” he continued. “It’s a new day! L’chaim!!!”

After the jump Shyne also touches on setting a good example for Black and Latino youths.

“On a scale of what this says to African and Latin American men, who have been trained to self hate and to self-destruct, this is a watershed moment,” the proud rapper continued. “The paradigm shift that’s taking place as the way Afro and Latin American men deal with each other is tremendous. This could be a gigantic step in putting an end to the cycle of hate and violence that is self-genocidal and destroying the minority community by sending fathers off to jail or an early grave.”
