Raids targeting a wholesale marijuana ring based in New York and Florida resulted in the arrests of 45 people, including one of the founders of the Roc-A-Fella record label, prosecutors said Friday.

Kareem Burke, who started the hip-hop label with Jay-Z and Damon Dash in the 1990s, was caught on a wiretap discussing “grow houses” with the ringleader, federal prosecutors in Manhattan said. An employee of High Times magazine also was charged.

Burke and the others face 10 years to life in prison for allegedly distributing over 1,000 kilos of the drug.

The early days of Roc-A-Fella: Kareem, Jay-Z and Damon Dash

They say Kareem has been a member of this drugs ring  since 1992.  Oh dear…

I remember seeing Kareem at a press conference that took place here in London several years ago, and he was so rude.  No exaggeration, the man behaved as if his s**t didn’t stink.  It was clear that money, success and notoriety had gone to his head

Now look at him.  Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I wonder if Jay-Z and Damon Dash will be called to testify when this case goes to trial.

  1. You’re right, editor. Him and his sidekick Damian acted like Coca Cola flowed out of the penises.

    I just don’t get it. Where’s all the millions that they supposedly made? What exactly were they doing with all that money?? I know Dash never wore the same pair of Timberlands more than 5 times…Never wore the same T-shirt and socks for more than 3hrs!!! I’ve had this T-shirt on since…hmmm…lets just say i’m wearing a T-shirt.. but surely,they should have at least some millions left in the bank..

    Did they really lose all the money they made? Damian always boasted about “not stopping until i make $1billion in cash!”. How much did he make? Who exactly was making the money?

    It’s all Suge Knight once again.
    It appears as if those who boast the most, fall the hardest..(OMG that rhymes..I ought to become a rapper)…Kanye,are you listening?

    What exactly is wrong with us black people?Are we new to money or is it new to us?Do we actually know what to do with the money?
