Roc-A-Fella records co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke pleaded guilty Thursday to federal drug charges, admitting he plotted to sell more than 100 kilograms of marijuana. Burke admitted his guilt before U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain in Manhattan. The plea bargain requires Burke to forfeit $660,000, his residence, $15,000 in cash that was seized from his home when he was arrested last year, and his 2010 BMW. In late 2010, Burke was raided and was among the 50 individuals arrested for being part of three separate but interconnected marijuana trafficking cells that distributed drugs from South Florida to New York. Burke faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years and up to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced May 18.
