Introducing ‘Kareem Biggs Burke’ The Silent Rocafella Boss (Rap Radar Interview Above)
Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke is a business person, music mogul, record producer, investor, and philanthropist. He was part owner of the Roc-A-Fella Records Empire, along with Jay Z and Dame Dash. The Rocafella Boss along with his partners founded Roc-A-Fella Records in 1996. The company got its start as an independent recording label releasing Jay-Z’s first album ‘Reasonable Doubt’.
He said in a recent interview that he only had 2 jobs in his entire life, and was born to be an “Entrepreneur”.
The reason why he isn’t talked about in the public like his former famous business partners is because he stayed out of the lime light and shunned away from interviews in the past. Also, he stated in a recent interview that he didn’t trust people, and was only in the music business for the money. Those close to him reported that he was standoffish around others who wasn’t in his “Inner Circle”. Therefore, he was a “Quiet Leader” from behind the scenes. A Powerful force indeed.
After Burke left Roc-A-Fella Records, he started the new record label called Dame Dash Music, along with Damon Dash. They also started Roc4Life ,while Jay-Z became a part of Def Jam.
Kareem still continues to associate with Jay-Z as part of various distribution deals. Burke has also started other ventures, helping establish the custom jeans manufacturing company called Fourth of November, along with several associates. His net worth is still growing as we speak.
As of 2017, sources such as celebritynetworth.com stated that biggs net worth is around $10 million, mostly earned through a successful career in the music industry. He’s also established a few more businesses, selling Roc-A-Fella after a split
