Black Mafia Family: Big Meech Talks, Murder, Music and Money

In the second part of AllHipHop.com'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.


 
AllHipHop.com: 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. 

AllHipHop.com:
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. 

AllHipHop.com:
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.

Big Meech:
Yeah I had four of them.

Milwaukee County Declares Racism A Public Health Crisis

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele signed a resolution Monday (May 20) stating racism is a public health crisis, and that the county plans to take action.

"Everybody has been reading and hearing about the same set of statistics in Milwaukee for decades," Abele said. "We lead in an unfortunate way the racial disparities in employment, in education, incarceration, income and even things like ... access to capital."

The resolution hopes to take actionable steps to level the playing field in Milwaukee, a playing field that finds minorities disproportionately affected.

Nicole Brookshire, the Milwaukee County Office on African American Affairs Director, was with Abele at the signing and spoke on the potential power of the resolution.

"We need to address racism as a public health crisis but on a large scale to make sure that we transform our culture, transform how we serve our residents and we drive solutions that are equitable," she said.

The resolution hopes to assess internal policies and procedures to make sure racial equity is a core element of the county, work to create an inclusive organization and identify specific activities to increase diversity and encourage other local, state and national entities to recognize racism as a public health crisis.

Los Angeles Honors May 21 As John Singleton Day

To commemorate a pioneer that helped to amplify different narratives out of the California city, Los Angeles named May 21 as John Singleton Day, EBONY reports. In a statement published by the website, the city's Council President Herb J. Wesson Jr. praised the late Singleton's career and cinematic vision.

"In a time and in an industry where all the odds were stacked against him, John overcame and became the best at his craft," Wesson stated. "And more than maybe anyone, he opened people's eyes to a reality and an experience of South Los Angeles that had been overlooked by society. It's far sooner than we should have to, but there is so much to celebrate."

In mid-April, Singleton began to experience bouts of pain in his legs which led to a stroke. The medical condition caused Singleton to fall into a coma and remain on life support until his family made the decision to take him off. Singleton passed away at age 51.

Collaborators and fellow film directors expressed their memories of Singleton, including the famed Spike Lee. The She's Gotta Have It director wrote his tribute on Instagram, recalling a certain moment in time that sums up Singleton's impact.

"We met while he was a film student at USC. Over many years people have told me 'I’m going to be a filmmaker,' when John said that to me the first time we met, I believed him right away," Lee wrote. "It was no surprise. With his passion, his heart, the way he talked about his love for cinema and black folks I could see John would make it happen, and he did. From day one, we have remained close over the decades, cheering each other on in this industry that is not set up for us to win. John Singleton’s films will live on forever."

Romeo Santos Makes History As The First Latino Performer To Headline MetLife Concert

Romeo Santos is making history and his fans have the most to gain from it.

On September 21, Santos will perform at MetLife Stadium making him the first Latin artist to do so. The venue holds up to 80,00 seats, which is more than enough for Santos' fans who will go see the singer perform his recent number one album, Utopia.

The one-day event will be called, UTOPIA the Concert, and Santos, the King of Bachata has already taken to his social media to express his appreciation on being chosen to make history at the stadium.

"I've never performed in such a prestigious venue, not even when I was a part of Aventura or in my solo career," the 37-year-old said in a video posted to his Instagram account about his upcoming concert. The "Odio" singer shouldn't face too much of a challenge in filling up the MetLife stadium seats.

In 2014 he sold out two Yankee Stadium shows, the stadium holds over 50,000 people; during his Golden Tour he sold out New York's Madison Square Garden three times. His draw power is undeniably huge, so tickets may be hard to come by once they go on sale.
