Black Mafia Family Subject of New Documentary
The concept of 'B.M.F.' still signifies "blowing money fast" to most, but when Rick Ross rapped "It's like I'm Big Meech," he was also referring the leader of the infamous Detroit drug-trafficking ring Black Mafia Family. Now, the story of the real B.M.F. is coming to movie theaters in a new documentary surrounding the organization and the life and times of Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory (pictured), who is currently serving a 25-30 year prison sentence.
The film will be produced and directed by James DuBose and marks his first feature presentation. He has mostly done work for television throughout the years, recently collaborating with BET on 'Trey Songz: My Moment,' 'The Michael Vick Project' and other shows featuring Monica and Tiny & Toya.
DuBose seems to immersing himself in the subject matter, referring to Meech as a real "mathematical genius" in a recent interview. That math didn't fully work out in his favor, though. While Meech helped move thousands of kilos of cocaine and earned an estimated $270 million during his run, he will remain in prison until the 2030s.
No date has been set for the completion and premiere of DuBose's 'B.M.F.' film. He is also working on a new reality show entitled 'Young Moguls' that is set to star Diddy's son Christian Combs.
