Back during the 90’s and 00’s while Jay-Z was dominating the Hip-Hop game, his man and Roc-a-fella co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke was allegedly running the street scene with a man who just copped to catching nine bodies in that time span.

According to the New York Daily News, Manuel Geovanny Rodriguez-Perez, also known as “El Monstro,” along with Biggs, ran a lucrative marijuana market that dominated New York City’s weed scene from the early 90’s till 2010.

In Manhattan federal court, the 43-year-old copped to one count of racketeering conspiracy and confessed to being responsible for nine murders and 10 attempted murders which carries a sentence of up to life in prison.

Reports he NY Daily News:

Biggs, the Roc-a-Fella Records co-founder credited with launching Jay Z to fame, was recorded talking to the self-described “Monster” about marijuana suppliers.

Cops also spotted him loading Rodriguez-Perez’s money into his BMW trunk, the feds alleged in October 2010. Another top honcho in their $20 million operation was Matthew Woodstock Stang — an ex ad exec for “High Times” magazine, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s office charged.

Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burk pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge back in March of 2012 and just came home a few months ago.

Rodriguez-Perez’s laywer has yet to release a statement.
