9780312674151
In the early 1990s, Demetrius Big Meech Flenory and his brother, Terry Southwest T, rose up from the slums of Detroit to build one of the largest cocaine empires in American history: the Black Mafia Family. They socialized with music mogul Sean Diddy Combs, did business with New York's king of bling Jacob The Jeweler Arabo, and built allegiances with rap superstars Young Jeezy and Fabolous. Yet even as BMF was attracting celebrity attention, its crew members struck fear in a city. When the brothers began clashing in 2003, the flashy and beloved Big Meech risked it all on a shot at legitimacy in the music industry. At the same time, utilizing a high-stakes wiretap operation, the feds inched toward their goal of destroying the Flenory's empire and ending the reign of a crew suspected in the sale of thousands of kilos of cocaine -- and a half-dozen unsolved murders.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Mara ShalhoupPublisher: St. Martin's GriffinPublished: 01/18/2011ISBN: 9780312674151Pages: 804Weight: 0.64lbsSize: 8.23h x 5.57w x 0.92dAward: Street Literature Book Award Medal (Slbam) - Honorable Mention
