Biggs Pulls Five Year Bid


Back in March Roc -A- Fella Records co-founder Kareem (Biggs) Burke pleaded guilty to drug charges after getting caught in a multi-state drug sting that netted more than 50 people [click here if you missed that].

Welp, it's time to pay the piper...

Jay Z's former road dog was sentenced to five years in prison on Monday for conspiring to distribute more than 100 kilos of marijuana.

Kareem also had to forfeit his house, his car and $600,000 in cash.

Some of these guys really need to give Jay-Z the bizniz. I'm so sick of him. Funny how he's ballin and everyone who was associated with him before he sold himself to the highest bidder have all fallen on hard times.

Why should any of the former assoicates need to give Jay-z the business. Jay moved on to bigger and better things and what he did in his young early youth age is not what he's doing now. If you don't like him that's on you, but what did he do to you for you to have this much hate for him now. Just like jay-z change his life style, his associates had more than enough opertunity to do the same but chose to stay in the same mind set of early times. Don't blame Jay-z for their mishaps blame them for not growing up.

Oh well nigga, try not to drop the soap.

I wouldn't be surprised if JayZ gave up Kareem (Biggs) Burke to keep himself out of jail.

JayZ will sell out his mother and wife if it saves himself from hard times. He's a jello man.
and he's got no guts for the hard life.

Times are-a-changing for Jay, watch your back fool.

@12:15 street cant stay street forever; you can compare it to the old guy in the club trying to holla at chicks 20-30 years younger than him, thinking he still fly when he was their age.

You cant move on or grow then you get passed by or in these hood guys case.....locked up.

Thank God Jay got the fuck away from these low-class ass motherfuckers! Jay was always too good for niggas of this caliber anyway. He was destined for bigger & better things & people.

Jay-Z And Kanye To Blame For Gwyneth Paltrow’s Use Of N-Word

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has come under attack for using the N-word when referring to a photo of two of her African American friends Jay-Z and Beyonce.

When partying on stage with the couple during a Jay-Z and Kanye Watch The Throne stop in Paris Friday, Paltrow tweeted a photo with the message, "Ni**as in paris for real @mrteiusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh."

Bigger and better things such as sucking the white man's dick? How do you know exactly what he is doing now? Are you a close associate of his? If you like him, fine, but what did he do for you to be on his dick so much now?

BTW, before you try to come at me with your lame shit you should either learn to spell or stay away from blogs. Ass.

As I said, everyone associated with Jay has fallen on hard times...is this coincidence? Jay has walked over everyone who was there when he had nothing. As soon as he made it big he's now hanging out with Warren B. No one said anything about living the same life. That's the problem with black people, they get money and change. No one is saying be a criminal - it's not turning your back on people.

When did anyone say Jay should stay street? It's funny how other communities make it and the pull each other up one by one and then wonder why blacks stay at the bottom. This is why - blacks make it and only want to be around white folks.

Wow...wouldn't it be crazy if Jay was an FBI informant, like in The Departed? I'm just sayin, don't come knocking on my damn door....

@12:41 now i'm not defending or attacking either Jay or Biggs for only one reason and that is i do not know them or how they handle themselves

We do not know if Biggs was extended a hand from Jay and denied it or used any help given and wasted it. How many people get help and try to be slick and use that $ to buy a brick and think they can flip it? Not saying that this happened, but it seems Bigg decided to stay street even after making Millions from the Roc and it's corresponding businesses

If that's not a helping hand to use it and help him make it into even more legit money, then i dont know what is.....yet he's arrested for help running a weed distribution ring.......

Until we know Bigg's full path after splitting with Dash and Jay.....then all these accusations are just hollow talk and people feel that hollow space with what they know best.....hate.

5 years...babytime. He'll be out in about 20 months with good behavior.

@12:28, Jay is low class though.

Feeling Sorry For STUPID said...

Jay is still balling because he actually had the talent from the beginning. Let's just keep it real. Nobody should be still selling drugs in their 30's. Get in, get the money and if you're lucky get out. Nothing in life is going to be that easy.

As one gets older, he/she is supposed to change. If you don't, YOU are doing something wrong. As you get more worldly and sophisticated, you may no longer have the same things in common with old friends so friendships change- or end. If they don't progress and step up their life game that's their fault. No one should dumb themselves and lifestyle standards down for their friends' sake. The object of the game is the progress. I don't blame Jay for disassociating himself with knuckleheads... that's what grown ass men do.

Why do people feel Jay owe Biggs something? If I understand correctly Jay was writing and rapping not Biggs but Biggs and Dame were getting 1/3 each and never touched a mike. Shit if that ain't sweet wtf is? Somebody anybody tell me what was his role on the Roc, he was a owner as well. He didn't invest and spend his money wisely and to me that's no one's fault but his own.
