ROC-A-FELLA CO-FOUNDER KAREEM “BIGGS” BURKE PLEADED GUILTY TO DRUG CHARGES

ROC-A-FELLA COFOUNDER KAREEM"BIGGS"BURKE PLEADED GUILTY TO POT TRAFFICKING FACES UP TO 40 YEARS

Kareem “Biggs” Burke, a co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records along with Jay-Z and Damon Dash, pleaded guilty in Manhattan to a charge of conspiracy to distribute, as well as a charge of possession with intent to distribute, over 100kg of marijuana, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Burke took part in a nationwide marijuana distribution ring, stretching from Florida to California to New Jersey and New York, and was charged along with 51 other individuals in what authorities called “Operation Green Venom.” Burke’s fellow indictees had been arrested following such “overt acts” as hiding nearly $75,000 in tube socks within checked luggage at John F. Kennedy Airport.

Burke’s North Bergen, New Jersey home was searched following his arrest, which occurred in early October, with authorities finding $15,000 in cash, 3.2 pounds of pot, as well as what they described as “the remains of a marijuana growing operation.”

Burke faces a minimum sentence of 5 years in prison, as well as fines of $660,000, the loss of his New Jersey home, and his 2010 BMW.

Damon Dash and Burke split from Roc-A-Fella, and Jay-Z, citing irreconcilable differences, in the mid-2000s.

Mediajuicejoint: People underestimate that puff puff pass profit. Looks like the only person still eating from that threesome is Jay-Z, Damon Dash crawled under a rock, never to be heard of again, along with all the acts that followed him.

 Biggs took another route he continued to push that weight SMH. Well at least Biggs will do fed time, so he won’t have to live up to the name and Roc-A-Fella.
