Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory are the founders of the Black Mafia Family (B.M.F.).
They rose from the streets of Detroit to become hood legends.
Both are both currently serving 30-year sentences in federal prison after pleading guilty to money laundering and drug trafficking in 2007, but that’s only a small part of a complex story that makes the brother’s lives fascinating.
We will soon get an in depth look at B.M.F. via a Starz television series that is being executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and longtime partner Randall Emmett.

Meech recently penned a letter to 50 Cent, which was posted on the business mogul’s Instagram account, giving him the green light for the project and explaining why he trusts Emmett and G-Unit Films and Television, Inc. to accurately portray the real B.M.F.
“First, I must say Fif and Randall given the success of your past creative collaborations on numerous feature films and particularly your television series, “Power,” I feel that the two of you are the perfect team to tell “My Story.”

“Read carefully, I’m not playing no games. BMF COMING SOON!!!” 50 captioned the letter. “It don’t get realer then this, Now watch me work. I get the job done, you think I’m playing out here.”
50 added that casting for the series will not go the traditional route.
“Casting for The BMF SERIES will be handled differently, it will not require all talent to have a agent to read for a roll,” he explained. “I’m gonna find some diamonds in the dirt on this one. Meech & T both thought this would let the hood come show there talent. I WILL GIVE DATES,TIMES AND LOCATIONS SOON.”
