Big Meech’s Mom Responds to Rick Ross’s ‘B.M.F.’
Indisputably one of the biggest summer anthems of 2010, Rick Ross's 'B.M.F.' name-checks gangsters such as Larry Hoover and Demetrius 'Big Meech' Flenory, one of the founders of the Black Mafia Family (the name from which the song gets its title). And unlike John Gotti's grandson lashing out at Ross for adopting his grandfather's nickname, 'Teflon Don,' for his album title, Meech's mother Lucille Flenory isn't as perturbed by the expropriation of her son's alias.
"I had no problem with the song. I understand that this is an artist doing his thing. You know what I'm saying?' Ms. Flenory said during an interview on Atlanta's V103 with the Frank and Wanda Morning show. "So I had no problem with the song. I felt this was a way of acknowledging Meech and keeping his name out there. Not making him one of the forgotten souls."Her son, who is currently serving a jail sentence with his brother for running a cocaine ring, has also expressed his love of the track. "One of our friends in the ATL played the song for Meech over the phone and he listened to the song and he really loved it," his mother said. "He appreciated the song. He said the guys in prison were ranting and raving about the song."
Jeezy recently released a song dubbed 'Real B.M.F.' that features a recording from Big Meech taken from a telephone call where he spoke out against those tarnishing the B.M.F. name. The original song appeared on Rick Ross's 'The Albert Anastasia EP,' released this past May, and is also included on his recently released fourth studio album 'Teflon Don.' The album, featuring guest appearances from Drake, T.I., Jadakiss and more, was released earlier this week.
