This weekend the DEA took down notorious drug crew BMF with huge multi state raids, arresting dozens of members and confiscating enourmous amounts of cash and cocaine. The feds grabbed a couple of bricks and 3 million in cash, plus claim to already have intercepted 632 more kilos of coke and another 11 million in cash and assets. Brothers Terry and Demetrius ‘Big Meech’ Flenory were charged as ringleaders of the organization.
The BMF name has come up in connection with some of the most notorious incidents in hip hop such as the murder of Diddy’s bodyguard Anthony ‘Wolf’ Jones and even the 1995 shooting of Tupac Shakur. Meech, shown above in the center, was arrested and charged in the 2003 murders of Wolf and another man in Atlanta and was still out on $50,000 bail.
None of this should really surprise anybody who’s been paying attention. In the last few years BMF has become increasingly high profile, and I think most people know it wasn’t because of their musical talent. When your gangster is a hot topic on internet message boards it might be time to tone things down a little if you know what I mean. One interesting thing is how the feds allege the crew laundered some of the drug money. They would pay inflated prices for winning Detroit Lotto Tickets and then buy cars and cribs with the legit winnings.
Young Jeezy has been known to run with the crew and this year they had been working with rapper Bleu Davinci who had a hot joint with Jadakiss that circulated on mixtapes earlier this year. I guess he might want to look for another label.
