One of the three founders of the legendary Roc-a-Fella records, Kareem (Biggs) Burke, 31, was sentenced to 5 years in a federal penitentiary on Monday for conspiracy to distribute 100 kilograms of marijuana.
Over 50 people, including Biggs, were apprehended 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.
Biggs, Damon Dash and Sean (Jay-Z) Carter founded Roc-a-Fella records in 1996.
Unfortunately, the trio parted ways in 2004.
We hope Biggs uses those five years to augment himself and get back in the game!
