Roc-A-Fella Pleads Guilty To Drugs
NEW YORK (AP) - A founder of the Roc-A-Fella record label has pleaded guilty in New York to marijuana distribution charges.
Kareem Burke entered the plea Thursday in federal court in Manhattan. Burke started the hip-hop label with Jay-Z and Damon Dash in the 1990s.
The 38-year-old was arrested in October 2010 along with more than 50 other people in raids targeting a wholesale marijuana ring in New York and Florida.
Authorities seized nearly $2 million and more than 360 pounds of marijuana in the probe.
The government said a raid on Burke's residence in North Bergen, N.J., produced the remains of a marijuana growing operation and $15,000 in cash.
Burke faces five to six years in prison at a May 18 sentencing.
