For those who don’t know, Burke was Jay-Z and Dame Dash’s business partner when they launched Roc-A-Fela. He was arrested during a sting operation that picked up about 50 people for marijuana trafficking. Police said that the ring transported ton-quantities of marijuana for distribution in the greater New York area from the early 1990′s to 2010.
