I may have to be the first one to print up some “Free Biggs” t-shirt in support of Roc-A-Fella co-founder Kareem Burke. He was the silent partner that helped Dame and Hov bring the Roc to greatness. The mystique around Biggs first caught my attention on Reasonable Doubt’s CD artwork. I thought I’m sure he’s not a MC or producer so why does get to be on here? After some Internet and word-of-mouth research I found out he was like they’re consigliere. Sil, from The Sopranos if you will. However, the latest news on Kareem is not so good. A New York judge just sentenced him to serve 5 years in prison for his role in a large marijuana distribution operation that had ties to Florida, California and New York. Biggs faced a mandatory minimum sentence of five to 40 years on the charges and was forced to forfeit $15,000 in cash, his $600,000 New Jersey house and a BMW as part of his plea deal.
