Co-Founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke Is Planning “Roc-A-Fella” Biopic
Biggs wants to tell the story of Roc-A-Fella’s three founding fathers.
“Yeah, I’m working on it now,” Biggs told Revolt TV. “It’ll probably be separate stories of Jay, Damon [Dash] and myself. Showing us as kids to understand what we’ve went through — the pain and hardships.”
As he opined himself, Biggs has already laid out the storytelling framework, with three separate converging narratives, elucidating the come-up story of the three founding fathers of the ROC, himself included. In the Revolt interview, Biggs spoke about his struggles living in homeless shelters before the hitting pay dirt with the formidable three. He also hopes to gain a clearance that would allow him to retell Jay-Z’s early struggles of losing his father at the age of four and the similarly tragic circumstances that plagued a teenage Dame Dash.

Offset also reveals that Ric Flair personally called him, informing him that “Ric Flair Drip” was to be the official anthem of the Flair wedding. “I’m like he seriously finna walk his marriage listening to a rap song, usually it’s like a love song. When I seen his walk, he was lit, he was happy. He told me it was one of the best things to ever happen to him. He was going through a little health issue, he was like, it just gave him more drive. It was inspirational. Ric Flair was the first one with these rolexes and these jets.”
He also opens up about revealing some of the nontraditional elements of a trapper’s life, including the more vulnerable moments. “It’s okay to show a vulnerable side as a man. It’s really a great thing to do as a man, cause most men run from it,” says Offset. “I feel like you a stronger man by doing it. Instead of holding back, you just holding back your feelings, and that’s not true. We all got feelings, I don’t care how tough you supposed to be.”
