'Tupac' Producers Acquire The Rights To 'B.M.F.' Movie
In case you aren't familiar with one of the men Rick Ross thinks he is on the song "Blowin' Money Fast (BMF)," the producers of the biopic Tupac, have been granted the rights to make a film about Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory, the head of the Black Mafia Family.
Producers L.T. Hutton and David Robinson are on board and ready to get the script together. “We have a passion and enthusiasm in bringing Big Meech's story to the big screen," commented Hutton.
“We're working closely with Meech and Tammy Cowins to make sure every aspect of the story is done correctly.
The Black Mafia Family was founded in Detroit by Meech and his brother Terry in the 1980's but the drug trafficking operation spread out to Missouri, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, California and Texas by the 1990's.
Meech himself preached brotherhood amongst the family claiming their organization was about money and loyalty, not violence.
Members of BMF began to break into the entertainment and luxury car business to legitimize their illegal operations. The DEA estimates that BMF accumulated 13 residences, 35 luxury vehicles, $270 million in cash assets and in 2008 Flenory and his brother were sentenced to 30 years in prison each.
Let's hope the film lives up to the hype and gives insight to the men behind the legendary crew that became idolized for spending.
