The hit show BMF — which stands for Black Mafia Family — is a series based on the true stories of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest Tee” Flenory.

The two brothers, who are originally from Detroit, were the head of a drug trafficking and money-laundering organization founded in 1985 that had 500 members across the U.S. and accumulated over $270 million by 2005.

Demetrius also launched BMF Entertainment and was responsible for promoting and associating with notable hip-hop moguls such as Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, and T.I. BMF was widely popular at the height of their success, leaving many of us wondering where they are now. Read on for an update!

Big Meech was found guilty of large-scale drug trafficking and money laundering. The Black Mafia co-founder was handed a 30-year sentence back in 2008, but his attorney had his sentence reduced by 32 months.

He is now set to be released from prison in 2025 and dedicated to rehabilitating and readjusting to society. His son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., confirmed this information on his Instagram story and during an interview (via Hot 97).

Just like his older brother, Terry was sentenced to serve 30 years in prison. However, because of the spread of COVID-19, he was sent home to serve the rest of his sentence in 2020.

He is currently confined to his home but frequently engages with hip-hop artists and is able to connect with family and friends. Terry and his brother are estranged.

Derrick “ D.Meeks” Meeks

D.Meeks is alive, well, and free from prison.

Amid the downfall of BMF, Meeks was arrested on four charges but was able to beat every case because he set aside ample funds for the best lawyer he could find.

However, he did end up doing time back in 1992. He went to prison for shooting at an occupied dwelling.

In 2022, he sat down for an interview with Vlad TV to discuss his prison time in 1992:

“They said I tried to holler at somebody, maybe in the wrong way, to where they could charge me,” he explained. “They ended up charging me, but they had wanted me so bad by me losing the four cases that they had convicted me off of hearsay but just two witnesses.”

Ederick is still alive to tell the infamous tales of his past. He sat down with Vlad TV to denounce his old lifestyle. He expressed his desire that the next generation find other ways to make money.

He explained: “I would never say if I sold it, somebody else will. I’m not gonna say I destroyed people’s lives because, like you said, if they didn’t get it from me, they would have got it from someone else.”

When it comes to what he envisions for future generations, he shared: "I do not want the same thing for my grandkids, my siblings, or my family. I don’t want to see my people in jail missing all the fruitfulness that comes out of life,” he added.
