Randy Huggins created the show with executive producer Curtis Jackson, the man who we know as the famous Grammy-winner rapper 50 cents.
Then you got Snoop Dogg himself, another star from hip-hop culture, playing the role of a literal pastor.
This show was bound to succeed! And more than that, the story itself, following these two Detroit-based brothers building a drug empire from nothing, is intriguing for sure.
Demetrius and Terry Flenory, known as “Big Meech” and “Southwest T,” were responsible for building America’s most prominent and most notorious drug and money-laundering organization of that time.
If the series only intrigued you to find out where Big Meech is now, when he will be released, and what happened to his brother, we will address these queries in this article.
Who is Big Meech?
Big Meech is the name of Demetrius Flenory, one of the Black Mafia Family brothers in the crime world.
He and his brother Terry Flenory, who was infamous for the name ‘Southwest T’, singlehandedly built the ’80s biggest and most influential organization responsible for most drug trade and money laundering.
Big Meech and his brother Southwest T were arrested in 2005 and sentenced to 30 years in federal prison in 2008.
Where Is Big Meech Now?
As mentioned, he was arrested in 2005 following his 30-year sentence to federal prison in 2008.
Since then, Big Meech has currently doing time at the Oregon prison alongside his partner and brother, Southwest T.
Big Meech and his brother didn’t just build this huge crime empire but also founded a record label with the name of BMF Entertainment in 2000.
He also co-founded another venture, JUICE Magazine as well. Both of his business outlets became a great source to launder his drug money.
The peak success of Big Meech was the time when their drug ring collected around $270 million in profits, and they had more than 500 people in their organization at their payroll.
Is Big Meech’s Brother Alive?
Big Meech’s brother, Southwest T, was integral to the BMF. If you are wondering what happened to him or whether he is alive, it is only the right question to ask.
According to rumors, Southwest T, Big Meech’s brother, was shot dead after he was released from prison in May 2020, an early release due to COVID-19 outbreaks in the prison.
He was sent back home for the rest of his sentence in home confinement.
When Will Big Meech Be Released From Prison?
According to Big Meech’s lawyers, there have been multiple failed attempts to make him walk free early from prison.
However, after a while, a federal judge finally convinced to reduce his sentence in June 2021. So, his sentence was only to serve 324 months instead of earlier 360 months.
Big Meech is expected to leave the Oregon Prison in 2028 after completing the rest of the sentence.
50 Cent, BMF executive producer, even celebrated this news by sharing it on Instagram, which was later deleted.
