BMF the rise and fall of Big Meech and the Black Mafia Family by Mara Shalhoup( file )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
"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. It is a tale built on the seduction of vast sums of money, a seduction that pulled in hip-hop stars but that also had a darker side. 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. BMF's ruthlessness caused them to rise to incredible power, but wanting even more lead to their downfall"--Publisher's description
