One of Jay-Z’s former business partners may have to learn to live with regrets after he was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents earlier today in a sting operation.

According to the New York Post, Roc A Fella co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke was arrested this morning along with 43 other people in a massive drug investigation spanning up and down the East Coast.

Also notably nabbed in the dragnet was Matthew Stang, a writer and senior ad rep at High Times magazine.

According to the paper, the 44 arrests, which followed an 18-month investigation into the lengthy drug network headed by Geovanny “Manny” Rodriguez Perez – resulted in $1 million in seized profits and 177 pounds of marijuana.

According to the Feds, Perez is suspected of being involved with the New York City drug trade since the 1990s.
