Hey my loves.

Today, I wanted to shed some attention on a new upcoming tv show called BMF (Black Mafia Family). Directed by Tasha Smith, the show picks up in the city of Detroit during the late 1980s in which it follows the life of two young brothers named Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory, portrayed by Demetrius Flenory Jr., and his little brother Terry (Southwest T) Flenory portrayed by Da’Vinchi.

It exposes their overall rise to fame within creating one of the biggest crime families in history.

As the show tends to dive deeper within the brothers’ lives, you learn that it wasn’t always just about the money. It was more about how he could protect his family and pave a better life for them, one he thought was better at the time because after all, they were living in a city that was once widely known for murder and drugs.

Although it wasn’t just Meech’s voice and him pinpointing the highlights of his mistakes, it was overall his desire to tell his story in his own way. “Now, I’m coming back with my own show to tell you exactly how it’s done and how Detroiters act and what we eat,”- Demetrius Flenory.

Explaining that there were levels to what he and his brother were doing; that it wasn’t for the clothes or females. It was strictly two men learning how to improve their lives for the better one day at a time, while at the same time also expressing the overall truth within betrayal, loyalty, pain, and the overall struggle within trying to over achieve something greater.

Allowing the show to serve a source of authenticity, it serves under the terms of showcasing the struggles one family goes through and the length that one goes to change their overall troubles, even if it may not have been the greatest route.
