Mikey Fresh | January 13, 2011 - 10:20 pm
In the second part of’s feature on convicted, incarcerated drug boss Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory goes deep into the annals of street history. Flenory, who is serving a 25-year sentence in Georgia, reveals the origins of B.M.F., a drug gang accused of selling tons of kilos of cocaine and laundering over $270 million dollars in proceeds.

In Part 2, Meech explains a variety of incidents, including the murder of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ childhood friend/bodyguard Anthony “Wolf” Jones. Wolf was so tight with Combs that he was a co-defendant in Combs’ high profile trial over a 1999 shootout involving J.Lo and Shyne. According to Big Meech, he was not involved in those murders, or the litany of drug charges he plead guilty to. 

In this interview, Meech opens up on Wolf’s murder, his relationship  with Diddy, as well as his brother, mother and father and his penchant to engage cops in high speed chases during traffic stops.

Big Meech is currently hoping to have his appeal heard in front of The Supreme Court in Michigan. In addition to the massive amounts of cocaine they say you trafficked, the amount of cash was mind blowing. How was it all transported to the clubs without any major violence? I saw you guys blow at least $100,000 in one night in Atlanta. 

Big Meech:
What I’m saying is, everybody is happy. everybody is making money. I been around a place like Atlanta for a long time. I lived there since the 1990, been there since 1988. I didn’t have the problems other people had I been through a lot of things. Almost 90 percent of the cities I touched down in, I had nothing but love. So it was never no problems. And we don’t do no robbing, we just never had no problems. When you got a crew that’s hungry, they might turn on you.
You have a business acumen about yourself that’s a lot different. Where does your CEO mentality come from. 

Big Meech:
That’s what I was before I left the streets, I was CEO of BMF, the label.
I know that, but I’m saying you ended up at the top, you were in a leadership role, some people are followers.

Big Meech: It always been a dream of mine, I always had a love for music growing up. Being able to bring all these brothers together and do something positive with it and not be known as some drug gang or gang members period. That’s why I consider all family. We never was a gang. All my friends were involved [in the music business], like Puff, JD, Jeezy, Slim Thug, Nelly. These people were involved in music and it made me want to be more hands on. I seen how a lot of artists was getting jerked at the time and still are today and that’s something I was going to change, once I got my foot all through the door. But the government seen me with my foot almost closing the door and they end up giving me these trumped up charges. The advertisements you had popping off in Atlanta for years -

Big Meech:
Yeah I had four of them.
