As two-thirds of Roc-A-Fella Record’s forefathers move and shake in their respective industries, Kareem “Biggs” Burke is currently serving a five year bid for a drug charge. During an appearance on MTV’s RapFix, longtime friend Dame Dash spoke on the folks who turned their back on the former record label executive when we got incarcerated.

“I really saw him bid with people,” Dash said. “I’ve seen him help people through really rough times, and those same exact people are not stepping up. They’re expecting him to ask and I don’t think that that’s alright.”

The Poppington art gallery owner dedicated a recent Instagram post to the topic, and many assumed that message was reserved for Jay Z. But Dash was sure not to implicate his former business partner.

“It doesn’t matter what people think. I don’t project for that, I just project,” Dash explained. “If I have an issue with Jay, I’ll step to Jay about it. But my point is overall, it ain’t Jay; it’s a lot of people that I saw him look out for.”
