"The story of Demtrius "Big Meech" Flenory and his legendary street crew, the Black Mafia Family (BMF), is the tale of a modern-day don who aspired to be something more: a credible name in hip-hop.

While BMF was able to attract increasingly mainstream stars, its crew members grew notorious for a cult of violence that threatened a host of other celebrities, including the families of pop icon Bobby Brown and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin.

The Denzel principle [why black women can't find good black men] by Jimi Izrael( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The Denzel Principle is the belief that the perfect man--the epitome of all the things women think Denzel Washington represents--exists off screen, and you can get one for your very own without settling for less: the regular good man need not apply. "The Dizzle," aka Mr. Perfect, is tough but vulnerable, accessible but not transparent, political but not radical, mannish but not macho, sexy but not solicitous, passionate but not hysterical, doting but not docile--and all these things on cue and in proper measure. The Denzel Principle gives up-front advice to women on how to break this cycle, including "Ways to Attract Mr. Right" and "Ten Reasons to Love Ordinary Black Men."
