50 Cent Gets Big Meech Blessing For B.M.F. TV Series

50 Cent is going to keep flexing with an official Big Meech blessing for his latest endeavor, a TV series sharing the story of the B.M.F. drug empire.

The rap mogul shared a handwritten letter from the B.M.F. leader to his Instagram page with the caption, “Read carefully, I’m not playing no games. BMF COMING SOON!!!#EFFENVODKA #FRIGO.”

In the note, Big Meech, born Demetrius Flenory, gives his blessing for 50 Cent and Randall Emmett to produce the show, which is slated to appear on Starz, the same network that hosts “Power.” The leader cites the success of the record-breaking show as one reason he trusts them with their latest venture.

“I feel that the two of you are the perfect team to tell ‘my story,’” he says.

He continues that he has not approved of any other attempt to tell the B.M.F. narrative and that it would be impossible for anyone to paint the complete picture without his co-sign.

“I’m the only one that can tell the B.M.F. & Big Meech story,” he says, “so any person or persons trying to do a film is ‘100% faking.’ ‘Loyalty’ is not just a word it’s a ‘lifestyle.’ ‘Death b4 dishonor.’”

B.M.F. established itself through a cocaine empire in the 1990s that stretched from Los Angeles to Atlanta. The B.M.F. brand spawned a record label, B.M.F. Entertainment, which worked with Jay Z, Jeezy and others. Big Meech and other execs, including his brother “Southwest T” Flenory, were arrested in 2005. The brothers are now serving 30-year prison sentences.

Baz Luhrmann, the director of the recent glitzy Great Gatsby remake which tapped Jay Z for its score and included André 3000 and Beyoncé remaking Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black,” is reportedly shopping a hip-hop television show.

The director, who also helmed films such as Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet, is apparently focusing on the early days of hip-hop in a show that would follow five friends during the late 1970s, two of whom are a writer and performer. The planned drama will begin in New York in 1977.

According to Vulture, Netflix, Amazon and FX have all been in talks to produce the show, while Showtime and others are next in line for discussions. The show will look at the birth of hip-hop through the eyes of the two main characters, and will contain heavy musical influences, though it won’t be a musical.
