Jay-Z’s Former Partner Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke Nabbed by the Feds

Kareem "Biggs" Burke, who co-founded Roc-a-Fella Records alongside Jay-Z and Damon Dash, was arrested today in Bergen, New Jersey, as part of a federal drug sweep operation (awesomely named Green Venom) that turned up $1 million in seized profits and 177 pounds of marijuana. Which means now's as good a time as any to remember the moral of "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)": "Hov' is back, life stories told through rap / Niggas actin' like I sold you crack / Like I told you sell drugs / no / Hov' did that so hopefully you won't have to go through that." Write this stuff down, kids. [NYP via Nah Right]
