Citing us some Yeezy, Jay-Z used to be Dame and Biggs brother. Well, Dame Dash is allegedly broke AF and Biggs was just handed down a 5 year sentence in federal court for his participation in a drug ring that pushed hella weed weight on the East. Was the Roc co-founded with bud-money...? #NoBrainer
"AN EX-PAL of rapper Jay-Z was sentenced Monday to five years in prison for conspiring to distribute more than 100 kilos of marijuana.
Kareem (Biggs) Burke, 38, was snared in a federal drug sting called “Operation Green Venom,” which targeted a trafficking ring that controlled most of the wholesale pot market in the city.
More than 50 people were arrested.
Burke told Manhattan Federal Court Judge Loretta Swain that she would never see him again in court.
“Nothing personal, but I’m going to keep you to that promise,” Swain said.
Burke co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z and Damon Dash in the 1990s.
The trio parted ways in 2004.
