Longtime girlfriend of Southwest T – Tonesa Welch parties up Miami, sipping champagne with Rap/TV Mogul 50 Cent.
Check out this interview of Tonesa discussing the history and future of the Black Mafia Family.
As you heard here a while ago, music mogul 50 Cent had obtained the movie rights to executive produce a film about the powerfully notorious Black Mafia Family, headed by Demetrius ‘Big Meech‘ Flenory & his older brother Terry ‘Southwest T‘ Flenory.
Well a couple of years has since passed with no updates on the project and some thought it was not going to happen, or at best– obviously at a standstill.
Hope was restored after gossip surfaced last week that he is in fact still working on the project, the picture above shows him with his maybe his writer? Business partner?
According to the Internet streets:
Rapper 50 Cent is quietly becoming one of the most POWERFUL men in Hollywood. His hit series POWER is now widely recognized as one of the BIGGEST HITS on cable TV. Well he’s got anothe hit on his hands.
50 acquired the rights to the Black Mafia Family’s stories, and hes creating a TV show about it. You already KNOW its going to be GOOD.
Well not everyone is happy about it. MediaTakeOut.com learned that there are whispers around Atlanta that 50 is refusing to consult with the heavy hitters in Atlanta on the BMF TV series, including T.I., Jeezy, and some well known ex-drug dealers. Although 50cent own the rights, people are chatting and tweeting their displeasure with him leaving out the enter core of BMF.
Now I’m not sure how true any of this gossip is, but it appears we will get a BMF production sometime in the future. If executed properly, 50 stands make a grip off of this project, as well as create a street classic that will live on forever.
50 seems like a very business savvy guy, I’m sure he’ll find the proper sources when it’s time. He has to get the streets to cosign this project, there is no other way.
Hopefully he will get the story straight from Big Meech & Terry themselves, that way we know it’s real. It’s been a lonnng time coming!

According to the feds, Southwest T ran the west coast operation which distributed drugs from California to all of its other hubs in major US cities. Both brothers were sentenced to over 30 years in federal penitentiary.

Tonesa ‘Toni’ Welch, aka The Black Mafia Family’s First Lady stopped by her hometown Detroit’s HOT 107.5 radio station and give an update on the current state of BMF as well as to shed some light as to what the most known black drug organization of the new millennium she calls “family” was really about.
In the interview she gives her perspective on the organization and how she is giving back to the community through her own charity, Sylent Heart Foundation.
She says the Flenory brothers never hesitated to give back to those in the need. Upon her release, she started the Sylent Heart Foundation as a means to help children and families of incarcerated parents, something that she and her children experienced while she served time behind bars for her own ‘BMF’ indictment:
“I don’t care who needed help, we helped them and that’s why me being incarcerated myself and coming home, I wanted to carry that on”
She also discusses the now global BMF clothing line which was trademarked by her youngest son and is being worn by big name celebrities such as R&B singer Tank and Jermaine Dupri, whom she considers a longtime family friend.
