Combs's protégé, the young rapper Jamal "Shyne" Barrow—who was accused of firing wildly inside the nightclub and injuring the three bystanders—was found guilty of assault, reckless endangerment and criminal weapon possession, but was cleared of the more serious charge of attempted murder.
In 2002, Combs released We Invented the Remix followed by Bad Boy’s 10th Anniversary...The Hits in 2004. Though his Bad Boy music label was seriously slumping, it found new life with Combs's 2006 release Press Play, which featured Brandy, Mary J. Blige and Timbaland.
Combs branched into reality television with the premiere of his VH1 series I Want to Work for Diddy in August 2008.
