Black Mafia Family

The Black Mafia Family, or BMF, is an extensive criminal organization that recently delved into the world of hip-hop music and entertainment, successfully promoting a variety of rap artists. However, the DEA claims their investments in hip-hop are primarily a cover for money laundering funds acquired through drug trafficking.

The Flenory Brothers

The "Black Mafia Family" originated in Detroit, Michigan and was founded by two brothers, Demetrius "Meech" Flenory and Terry Flenory, who reportedly began their rise in crime by selling small amounts of crack cocaine on the streets during the 1980s. The BMF evolved into a nationwide, and international, partnership. During a two-year federal investigation of the organization, it was revealed that members were known to have operated in Detroit, Michigan; Columbus and Atlanta, Georgia; Los Angeles, California; Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando Florida; St. Louis, Missouri; Greenville, South Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky and even Sinaloa, Mexico, where they worked with the Malverde Mafia.

Very little information has been made public about the criminal activities of the BMF. However, the association of BMF members and high-level leadership with famous rap stars and their own moves towards hip-hop stardom began to garner attention at the time of the organization's disruption in late 2005. BMF commands a high level of respect in the hip-hop community, and even though they have remained out of the public eye for years, their influence extends throughout the hip-hop community and there is an almost unspoken code of respect and fear associated with the group for rappers not under their umbrella.

Hip-Hop Presence

BMF Entertainment began to generate buzz in the national hip-hop scene in the early 2000s. Although the group had nationwide influence, much of the music industry activity was centered in the group's adopted hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, and Birmingham, Alabama. BMF appeared in numerous underground hip-hop DVD magazines, most notably several issues of S.M.A.C.K. DVD Magazine and The Come Up DVD. The label's premiere artist Bleu Da Vinci, hails from the West Coast. His project, The World is BMF's, was nominated for an award by The Source Magazine in 2004.

BMF is also reported to own underground Atlanta music magazine The Juice.

Hip-Hop Affiliates

Several people in the hip-hop community are very closely affiliated with the BMF, most notably James Rosemond "Jimmy Henchmen", Walter Johnson "King Tut" and Jacques Agnant "Haitian Jack". At one point Sean Combs "Puff Daddy" "P. Diddy" or "Diddy" was being extorted by the east coast drug dealers.

Although not members of the BMF clique, several prominent hip-hop artists have appeared on underground records with Bleu Da Vinci. Atlanta-based rapper Young Jeezy in particular is a frequent BMF affiliate and has been seen at numerous video shoots and parties with the group. Jeezy has never officially acknowledged his BMF ties, and refuses to comment on them to news media. On March 11, 2006, Jeezy and several alleged BMF associates were arrested in connection with an incident in Miami. In addition to Young Jeezy, other artists known to collaborate musically or associate with BMF include:

Lifestyle

As depicted in their numerous DVD and music video appearances, BMF members engaged in a lavish lifestyle perhaps not fitting of many up-and-coming hip-hop labels. Members were often seen driving luxury European sports cars on screen and in music videos. They are also known to "make it rain money" in strip clubs, spending thousands of dollars a night. In one filmed DVD interview, Meech claimed to regularly spend $50,000 a night while clubbing. In addition, BMF were known to have thrown extensive and enormously expensive industry parties and birthday bashes for their members in Atlanta, complete with rented displays of exotic animals and BMF-logo ice sculptures. A particular DVD appearance has artist Bleu Da Vinci showing off a fleet of Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, BMW, Mercedes, Bentley, and Range Rover cars. CEO Big Meech later attests to the crew owning homes in locales across the country. The clique is reported to own at least one luxury car dealership.

2005 Raid and Arrests

In October, 2005, it was reported that some 30 members of BMF were arrested in a massive drug raid orchestrated by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). During these raids, the DEA claimed to have seized over $3 million in money, assets, and weapons, as well as 2 ½ kilograms of cocaine. It was also reported that prior to the raid, 17 members had been arrested and $11 million in money and assets had already been seized. In addition to large amounts of cash and assets, some 632 kilograms of cocaine had been reported to have been seized over the course of the investigation prior to the October raid.

The DEA classified BMF as "a sophisticated drug smuggling and money laundering organization," with "direct links to Mexico-based drug trafficking organizations."

Among members arrested at this time was the alleged leader of the organization, Demetrius Flenory (Big Meech). In early 2006 it was reported by associates (but not confirmed by news media) that Meech and another member had posted bond and are currently free on bail. Shortly thereafter, BMF posted a new image of Meech on their webpage. Jacob the Jeweler was recently arrested and charged with allegedly laundering more than $200 millon and trafficking drugs for BMF. He is said to have ties to the Russian Mafia. No further details surrounding the case, future trial dates or the continuing investigation have been revealed to the public.

Death of Baby Bleu

On March 9, 2006, "Baby" Bleu (Marque dixson), who is not the son of kingpin "Big Meech" and reffered to as younger brother of BMF recording artist Bleu Da Vinci, was shot and killed. He was supposedly murdered by a single female as he and a friend were leaving a night club in Atlanta, Georgia. He had made the news previously for allegedly stabbing the nephew of R&B artist Bobby Brown during an altercation.

On June 28,2006 J-bo an high ranked BMF commander was arrested on conspiracy charges of affiliation to mafia in hometown of St.Louis,Mo.. He is currently being held with no bond.

IN life you up & sometimes u down nutten to do wit karma thats a scared mans belief the truth is people are leaches that jump on soon as they see you up but when its time to struggle,sacrifice,or be punished they run, cut deals, or rat(run,an,tell)so they dont have to suffer pay or be held accountable for the things they leached.hopefully one day we will be smart enough to avoid these parasites in the inner circles that we conspire in to change our way of life against the oppressors who decide who gets rich and who stays poor which neighborhood gets drugs and which one does not. this i say those who scheme and ratted to keep a freedom that they only cherished when it came time to pay the piper may there days be cut short of enjoyment because loyalty is everything.

I don't know what they expect you to do out here in Detroit. Its a shame how we as a people is still slaves out here regardless if you got a job or you gotta stand down on these corners and get the bag off. Everybody still forced to bust they ass to live out here. It shouldn't be like that.
"Money Grows Off Trees".
Having To Work and do whatever to provide for your family is just new way of picking cotton. I respect the Flenorys for what they accomplished out here just as much as i respect OBAMA for getting elected. Im 22 and fill as thoe the time i wasted out here was in school, because Im still in the struggle. But its okay Cause
Meech and Southwest kept the trend going for unemployed Men In Detroit.
All I can say is
NEXT GENERATION UP...

I understand what bmf and big meech were trying to do, build and empire and have a legitimate business, sometimes the good we try to do goes unnoticed but that doesnt mean to stop trying to do good. Something once gained can be gained again..

I know I'm posting this long after the article was posted but its WAY OFF, I had to comment.

There is a difference between the BLACK MAFIA and the Black Mafia Family. You are talking about the Black Mafia Family known as BMF.

James Rosemond "Jimmy Henchmen", Walter Johnson "King Tut", Jacques Agnant "Haitian Jack", Sean Combs "Diddy" where involved with the Black Mafia. And this was in the mid 90's, around 1994-97. During the 2pac Notorious BIG beef and shooting. This had absolutely nothing to do with BMF.
