50 Cent reacts to Big Meech’s reduced prison sentence
The rap mogul is currently producing a new TV show about the Black Mafia Family.
Black Mafia Family co-founder Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory was granted an early release from prison on Monday (June 14) and 50 Cent couldn’t be happier. According to AllHipHop, a U.S. district judge reduced Big Meech’s prison sentence from 360 months to 324 months, meaning he will now be freed three years early.
As reported by REVOLT, 50 Cent is currently working on a new TV series about the multi-million dollar criminal enterprise called “Black Mafia Family.” In a post on Instagram, the rap mogul reacted to the news of Meech’s reduced sentence.
“YES! Now you know this BMF show is gonna blow everything off the fucking TV, the real shit different!” he wrote. “Green Light Gang.”
“Black Mafia Family” will premiere on Starz and feature La La Anthony, Tyshon Freeman, Jasun Jabbar Wardlaw Jr., Michole Briana White and Detroit rapper Kash Doll as “Monique.” According to Deadline, Snoop Dogg will also have a recurring role on the show as “Pastor Swift,” the Flenory family’s spiritual advisor.
In 2007, Big Meech and his brother Terry P.O. Lee “Southwest T” Flenory pleaded guilty to running a continuing criminal enterprise. Both brothers were sentenced to 30 years in prison, but Terry was released to home confinement last May due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the FBI dismantled the Black Mafia Family, the drug trafficking and money laundering organization was estimated to have made over $270 million.
While incarcerated, Big Meech adopted the new nickname “Big Herm,” earned his GED and completed classes in health awareness, money management and parenting. He also rebranded BMF as a community-building organization called “Build More Families,” which hosts back-to-school drives, basketball tournaments and more.
Big Meech’s prison sentence was reportedly reduced under the USSG amendments 782 and 788, which revised all drug offenses that occurred before November 2014. His new release date is now set for 2028.
