According to Roc-A-Fella co-founder Kareem 'Biggs' Burke, a biopic about the legendary record company is on the way.

Aimed to tell the stories of the three founders, Damon Dash, Jay-Z and Kareem Burke, the biopic will reportedly chart the highs and lows of the label, as well as its lasting legacy in Hip Hop.

Biggs, who will serve as executive producer on the upcoming HBO film OG, revealed the news during a recent interview with REVOLT TV, where he was asked if the story of Roc-A-Fella will ever be brought to the big screen.

"Yeah, I’m working on it now," Burke responded before touching on the plot of the movie.

"It’ll probably be separate stories of JAY, Damon, and myself. Showing us as kids to understand what we’ve went through—the pain and hardships," Burke said. "Being evicted, living in a shelter, and staying in people’s houses and floors for two years. 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... there were a lot of hardships and things we went through that actually gave us strength."
