As  previously reported, 50 has already secured the exclusive rights and official stamp of approval to produce the project from the leader of BMF, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory.

Sidenote: Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me and my team about casting for the series set to premier on the STARZ network. Right now we’re playing the waiting game. It takes a significant amount of time to get the business side secured for a project of this magnitude. Once the script is written, casting is the next phase.

Back in December, I tweeted 50 to see if I could get any information about the casting calls. No updates were provided until about 6 months later.

At any rate, I am just thrilled to see the project moving forward.

Keep checking back in to The Pen Hustler for casting info as it becomes available. I will do my best to get it out there as soon as humanly possible.

Who do YOU think should portray Big Meech and his brother in the series?

If you are interested in casting for the series, please send me your info along with any pics or headshots and I will feature you on the site.

You never know, you could land you the role!

Flashback: BMF Boss Big Meech Says He Made Billions In The Dope Game

meech1In 2011, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory spoke exclusively with author Cavario Here about his past life as one of the biggest drug dealers to ever “move dat dope.”

In the interview below, Big Meech calls in from prison to discuss his past dealings and how he touched billions of dollars as the head honcho of the Black Mafia Family. At the time of his indictment and arrest, he had accumulated an estimated worth of $270 million.

 

“Every entertainer or athlete wants to live like they’re selling kilos…Everybody wants to live like they’re selling dope. It’s the American dream.”

In the interview, the former drug kingpin paints a vivid picture of his extreme wealth:

“If you told them that a black man was living like that, doing what I was doing, they’d think you was lying,” he says. “No one was more liquid than me. I could grab a million dollars, throw it out the car, grab a million more no problem.”

Daily Jamrock


Leighton ‘Livity’ Coke, the brother of drug kingpin Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, was last night ambushed and shot several times at the Hellshire Beach in Portmore, St Catherine.

The police say a woman travelling with ‘Livity’, was also shot multiple times.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Clifford Blake said Livity and his female companion were taken to hospital in serious condition.
Investigators say Livity had just arrived at the popular spot when several men armed with guns approached his car and sprayed it with bullets.

In the meantime, the police say they have taken proactive steps in West Kingston in a move to maintain calm.

New York, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1947
Miami Beach
Miami-Dade County
Florida, USA

Organized Crime Figure, Chicago Gangster. Probably the best known of the 1920s gangsters, he controlled Chicago until brought down by FBI Agent Elliott Ness. Ness later wrote a book “The Untouchables” which detailed his efforts to jail Capone. Capone was the largest of the racketeers, and captured the American public’s imagination as few ever did. Born Alphonse Capone in Brooklyn, New York, of Italian immigrant parents, Gabriele and Teresina Capone, the fourth of nine children. Raised in a loving middle class Italian family, he was brought up to be honest and hard working. Surprisingly unbiased for his time, he would become friendly with anyone of any race, creed or color who was loyal to him. He quit school at 8th grade, and began work for Johnny Torrio, a new breed of gangster then taking over New York. From him, Al Capone learned his trade, initially running errands and working his way up the ladder to manager. He also learned from a rough local gangster, Frank Yale, about the use of violence to build an empire, while maintaining a respectable home and social life. He married an Irish Catholic, Mae Coughlin, and they had a son, Albert Francis Capone, born December 4, 1918. Baby Albert was born with congenital syphilis, which Al later admitted he had contracted many years before, but had thought the disease had gone away when it went into remission. His syphilis was never treated properly. When Johnny Torrio moved his operations to Chicago in 1921, he brought Capone with him, and together, they built up the crime empire, concentrating on nightclubs, prostitution, and illegal liquor. His first murder occurred in 1924, for which he was found innocent when the eyewitnesses were bribed. In March 1925, Torrio quit the business to retire to Florida, and gave his entire empire to Capone. Killing other gang members to build his empire, Al Capone’s violence peaked with the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, 1929 when seven members of Bugs Moran’s gang were murdered. This murder brought the attention of the Federal government, who swore to get Capone off the street and into jail. In 1931, he was indicted and convicted of Income Tax evasion and sentenced to eleven years in jail. He died in his home in Miami, Florida, of cardiac arrest resulting from third stage syphilis. He was originally buried in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois. (bio by: Kit and Morgan Benson)

BMF Boss Big Meech Has Words Of Wisdom For Rapper Meek Mill

I normally don’t entertain Hip Hop social media beef, but every now and then I step outside my comfort zone. What the hay –right? You only live once.

At any rate, rappers The Game and Meek Mill are currently beefing. The Game insists that Meek Mill ‘snitched’ on him about a robbery that took place of pop singer Sean Kingston’s jewels at a concert some time back. [Click Here] to catch up on the backstory.

The beef has now spilled over into social media — and the underworld apparently, with Big Meech reaching out to Meek Mill from prison via a virtual kite. 

Rappers Meek Mill (R) and The Game (L)


Via Bossip: 

Game surprised just about everybody after the release of his “92 Bars” diss to Meek Mill. Meek has been something of a target after (depending on who you talk to) losing the rap battle against Drake. With Meek and Game being street rappers there’s a chance things could get ugly, which is probably why Big Meech decided to reach out. 


Big Meech, former leader of the notorious Black Mafia Gang, allegedly reached out to Meek to dole out some words of wisdom. Here’s what he had to say:

“I was trying to holler at you for a min[ute] so hopefully I can say something to you that means something before them dudes out there force your hand and make you crash and lose everything out there you work[ed] hard to get,” Meech wrote. “Wanna see you on top successful where you belong not in prison over avoidable dumb shit,” he added.

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Shoutout to Big Meech for stepping in ‘big homie’ style to try to squash the unnecessary beef. We need more big homies out there to step in when needed because today’s kids think nonsense is the way to go. (Side note:) I wonder why he reached out to Meek Mill and not both? 

In any case, these rappers have got to stop all this quarreling and put out some hot music worth listening to. The rap game is now a shell of its former self. Social media thugging has become the new way of promoting mixtapes and airing out grievances, and I have to admit, I’m not a fan. I’m from the days where –if you had a problem you would pick up the phone, or as my little brother says, “pull up.” 

Meek Mill also had a message for Game

“U wanna fight? Next morning a diss raps…… Then the pre-order links. THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS!”
