Kareem Burke    

Entrepreneur, Record Executive, Film Producer & Co-Founder of Roc-A-Fella Records

Kareem “Biggs” Burke is an American entrepreneur, record executive and film producer. He is best known as the co-founder (with Jay-Z and Damon Dash) of Rock-A-Fella records and the Rocawear clothing line.

Burke executive-produced every album released with the label, which sold millions of records. In 2004, Roc-A-Fella Records was purchased by Def Jam Recordings (which had previously only owned half of the company) and in late 2005, Carter bought Dash and Burke out of their stake in Rocawear. Burke has since launched numerous clothing lines, including Reasonable Doubt, Fourth of November, and Redo96.

Recently, he executive-produced the film "O.G." and the documentary "It’s a Hard Truth Ain’t It" for HBO, and has returned to the music business, signing rapper Saint Jhn.
