Summary

In the early 1990s, Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory and his brother, Terry "Southwest T", rose up from the slums of Detroit to build one of the largest cocaine empires in American history: the Black Mafia Family. They socialized with music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, did business with New York's king of bling Jacob "The Jeweler" Arabo, and built allegiances with rap superstars Young Jeezy and Fabolous. Yet even as BMF was attracting celebrity attention, its crew members struck fear in a city.  

When the brothers began clashing in 2003, the flashy and beloved Big Meech risked it all on a shot at legitimacy in the music industry. At the same time, utilizing a high-stakes wiretap operation, the feds inched toward their goal of destroying the Flenory's empire and ending the reign of a crew suspected in the sale of thousands of kilos of cocaine - and a half-dozen unsolved murders.

Intriguing

I enjoyed the story. However, there were too many characters to follow the story well. I used Google a lot. I wished that tje writer would not have used their street names, first names, and last names interchangeably.

Anything b.m.f is interesting

Good book over all some chapters had me off track with different characters. But they dealt with alot of people. Kept me busy wanting to keep listening and busy while I was at work on down time. I'd recommend it to someone wanting to learn more about their story. Man they had it ALL !! SHOULD OF GOT OUT WAY SOONER. BUT IF I WAS MEECH I DONT KNOW IF I COULD SAY ALL THE MEMORIES PARTYING AND BALLIN AND DOING ALL THAT TIME COULD MAKE UP FOR THE MEMORIES OF WATCHING MY SON GROW UP. BUT IF ANYTHING HE SET HIS SON UP FOR LIFE HES NOW A TV STAR AND IM SURE THERES MONEY STASHED WHEN HE COMES HOME OR JUST FROM THE LEGIT SERIES 50 CENT PUT OUT HE WILL BE RICH. BUT YOU CANT GET TIME BACK. BUT ONE THING HE CAN SAY, HE TOOK HIS TIME LIKE A MAN .HE SIGNED UP FOR IT AND KNEW THE CONSEQUENCES AND ACCEPTED THEM LIKE A SOLDIER. NOT FAIR HIS BROTHER GOT OUT BEFORE HIM.. ID LIKE TO READ A UPDATED VERSION. GOOD READ.

More Entertainment than True Crime but great

I learned a lot more than I expected but I also did not hear much to confirm that what the narrator was sharing was factual.
