Shyne featuring Pusha T “Meyer Lansky”

 

Shyne Po releases a new track featuring Pusha T entitled “Meyer Lansky.” Take a listen below and check out Meyer Lansky’s bio courtesy of Wikipedia.

About Meyer Lansky

Meyer Lansky (born Meyer Suchowljansky;[1] July 4, 1902 – January 15, 1983), known as the “Mob’s Accountant,” was a Russian-born American organized crime figure who, along with his associate Charles “Lucky” Luciano, was instrumental in the development of the “National Crime Syndicate” in the United States. For decades he was thought to be one of the most powerful people in the country.

Lansky developed a gambling empire which stretched from Saratoga, New York to Miami to Council Bluffs, Iowa and Las Vegas; it is also said that he oversaw gambling concessions in Cuba. Although a member of the Jewish Mafia, Lansky undoubtedly had strong influence with the Italian Mafia and played a large role in the consolidation of the criminal underworld (although the full extent of this role has been the subject of some debate).

Using the date which casts a “5″ shadow as a teaser of sorts, a keynote address is planned for 10 AM Pacific. Suspected features include a thinner, taller iPhone with 4-inch display – which abandons the 4:3 aspect ratio for one more like an HDTV. Rumors suggest Apple will start taking iPhone 5 preorders after the event wraps up – offering consumers the chance to lock in a release day delivery. While Apple is not confirming this, rumors point to a September 21 iPhone 5 release date.
