Lieutenant $hyne (Martavious Payne Sr.), is a native of Memphis, TN. While being raised in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in South Memphis on McMillian Street (a.k.a. McKillan), $hyne had to persevere through countless struggles ranging from overcoming poverty to losing childhood friends to gun violence while simultaneously avoiding a premature demise.
$hyne’s new single, “Foldgers” (The Best Part of Wakin’ Up) is about the joy of starting out your day knowing that it's going to end well. $hyne says he was having one of those Ice Cube days when he first heard the beat referencing back to Ice Cube's classic "It Was A Good Day." "Foldgers" is currently available on all digital platforms. Connect with $hyne on socials: @LtShyne901
