Kareem “Biggs” Burke played the background as co-CEO of Roc-A-Fella Records. However, Jay-Z’s former business partner apparently decided to delve into drugs after the record company disbanded. Biggs was recently sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to distribute 100 kilos of marijuana. He had to forfeit $15,000 in cash, his $600,000 home and his BMW.
