An associate to Kareem “Biggs” Burke (the man who co-founded Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z in 1996), admits his involvement in 9 murder cases on top of 10 attempted murders.

Burke was released from federal prison last year after pleading guilty to drug conspiracy charges in March 2012. His “associate” however, didn’t fare as well. Manuel Geovanny Rodriguez-Perez, a.k.a. “El Monstro,” is facing life in a New York prison for the murder cases.

The NY DailyNews reports that Rodriguez-Perez, 43, also pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy in Manhattan federal court yesterday (June 7). Prosecutors have labeled him as a drug kingpin of the highest caliber, having dominated the NYC marijuana trade from the early 1990s to 2010.

Hov’s former partner, Burke, was recorded by feds not only talking to Rodriguez-Perez about marijuana suppliers, but was caught also dumping money into the trunk of his BMW in October 2010.

Burke & Jay-Z launched Roc-A-Fella Records in 1996 to an unprecedented legacy, launching the careers of Jay-Z, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, and Kanye West.
