RevoltTV got the scoop on a possible project about the creation and catapult of Roc-A-Fella Records.
Kareem “Biggs” Burke chatted with the media platform about projects he’s completed and ones he’s been working on since his 2015 release from prison. Besides launching management company, Circle of Success, signing his first artist and getting a production deal with Valence Media, early developments for a Roc-A-Fella Records biopic is keeping Burke busy.
The Roc O.G. explained the possible direction he plans to take with the narrative. The goal is to tell the background story of Jay-Z, Dame Dash, and himself (the founding fathers of the label) to get an understanding of the struggles they experienced during childhood.
“The extenuating circumstances such as me living in a shelter, some people don’t really know that. Being evicted, living in a shelter, and staying in people’s houses and floors for two years,” Burke said ”Jay losing his father at four years old when his father left him. Dame losing his mom at 14 years old and having to put himself through private school. So, there were a lot of hardships and things we went through that actually gave us strength.”
Biggs also went on to speak about the recent apology Dame issued to former partners, like Jay and Jim Jones. Though Dash expressed his love for Burke, the hip hop mogul didn’t evoke the same sentiments back. However, he did acknowledge the effort and hoped nothing but the best for the controversial business figure.
“Usually, when people apologize, it’s not so much about the person they’re apologizing to. It’s more about them and relieving that burden or whatever is troubling them. For him to feel better and be in a better space, I’m really happy about that. I’m hopeful that his apology took him to a place, and a level of comfort and forgiveness.”
Well, I think we can all agree that this story is long overdue! What other hip-hop groups would you guys want to see a biopic for?
