Black Mafia Family (BMF), a new crime drama from Starz, debuted on September 26th, 2021. The show had a good chance of becoming successful because of the involvement of Curtis Jackson, a Grammy-winning rapper & Snoop Dogg, who hardly needs an introduction, as a literal preacher.
The show is based on a true story; it follows two brothers, reared in Detroit, as they create a drug empire from the bottom up. In fact, that makes the situation even more intriguing. In the 1980s, brothers Demetrius and Terry Flenory, often known as “Big Meech” & “Southwest T,” founded one of the most infamous drug trafficking & money-laundering organizations in the US.
We can't make this stuff up, but Da'Vinchi portrays Southwest T & Demetrius Flenory Jr., better known as “Lil Meech,” portrays his kingpin father, Big Meech. We love to see that Big Meech's own son is a budding 21-year-old rapper and actor, but where is Big Meech now?
Where is Big Meech Now?
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Big Meech is serving time in an Oregon jail following his and Southwest T's arrest in 2005, given that we informed you that BMF is about Big Meech's infamous drug & money-laundering business.
In addition to their massive drug network, the brothers also established BMF Entertainment, a record label, in 2000, and Big Meech, a magazine, in 2002, both of which proved to be successful avenues through which to launder money.
To put it in context, the cocaine network reportedly made $270 million in earnings and employed more than 500 employees, as reported by The Detroit News. That the brothers started selling modest amounts of cocaine while still in high school is mind-boggling.
When Will Big Meech Be Let Out of Prison?
Big Meech had been trying unsuccessfully to get out of prison for a long time, but in June 2021, a federal judge lowered his sentence from 360 to 324 months. In 2028, Big Meech is scheduled for parole. 50 Cent, executive producer of BMF, made sure to celebrate the news with an Instagram post that has since been deleted.
Is Big Meech's Brother No Longer Alive?
So, you're probably wondering what happened to Southwest T. There have been rumors circulating online that Southwest T was murdered shortly after his early release from prison in May 2020 due to widespread breakouts of the virus COVID-19 among inmates.
But as of yet, nothing has been officially confirmed. He will serve the remainder of his sentence at home. In the meanwhile, viewers of the Starz series can get to know Big Meech and Southwest T better.
Eminem, winner of 15 Grammy Awards, guest stars as White Boy Rick in the promising series alongside Ajiona Alexus, Serayah, Myles Truitt, and Russell Hornsby. Starz broadcasts new episodes of BMF every Sunday at 8 p.m.
