About Black Mafia Family
Lil Meech’s father Demetrius Edward ‘Big Meech’ Flenory was born on 21 June 1968 under the zodiac sign of Cancer, in Detroit, Michigan USA. His younger brother, Lil Meech’s uncle Terry P. O. Lee ‘Southwest T’ Flenory, was born a year and a half later.
The brothers started selling bags of cocaine for $50 each on the Detroit streets while they were still in high school in the late 1980s. In the following 15 years, the brothers established a large cocaine distribution network throughout the US, and were even connected to Mexican drug cartels, and had more than 500 people working for them. Demetrious ran the organization in Atlanta, while his brother Terry ran it in Los Angeles.
Besides that, the brothers entered the music industry by founding their own promotion company and record label called BMF Entertainment, which served them for laundering money from their cocaine distribution. The company worked with numerous famous hip hop artists, such as Shawty Lo, Diddy, Young Jeezy, and Jay-Z, to name a few.
The police started investigating the organization in the early 1990s, while their main investigation called “Operation Motor City Mafia” started on 28 October 2003. The following year, they arrested one of their main distributors Jabari Hayes, who was caught with around 100kgs of cocaine and marijuana. They continued to arrest other members of the organization, and many of them informed the police about the brothers. In a DEA-organized massive drug raid in 2005, they arrested over 30 BMF members, including Demetrius and Terry, and the brothers were subsequently sentenced to spend 30 years in jail. After the investigation was completed four years later when they caught the last remaining suspect – more than 150 BMF members were arrested.`
