Watch The Notorious Black Mafia Family Assemble in The Trailer for 50 Cent’s ‘BMF’ Series

The first episode of BMF will arrive via Starz on September 26th.

Starz has released the first trailer for the upcoming crime drama, BMF.

Pushing two-minutes in runtime, the preview introduces the Flenory brothers, Demetrius (“Big Meech”) and Terry (“Southwest T,”) as ambitious Detroit teens in the 1980s. With their sights set on carrying the Young Boys Inc. torch, Meech and T found BMF (Black Mafia Family,) and quickly become one of the nation’s largest black drug cartels, operating out of the Motor City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, before being disbanded by the DEA with a series of hundreds of indictments.

The syndicate was known for being particularly flamboyant and culturally impactful, notoriously entering the music business with BMF Entertainment, a money-laundering front designed to wash the revenues from their drug distribution racket. As a label and promotions company, BMF Entertainment had several high-profile clients before it shuttered, including JAY-Z, Jeezy, Fabolous, Trina, TI, E40, Shawty Lo, and more.

Teased a few weeks back when the show was announced, BMF stars Big Meech’s son as his father, Lala Anthony, Snoop Dogg, Kash Doll, and Eminem as (a presumably much older version of) the infamous White Boy Rick, who was previously chronicled in a feature film bearing his name in 2018. Longtime Starz partner and personality, 50 Cent, is set to produce the series under his G-Unit Film and Television banner.

Watch the trailer for BMF below and tune in on September 26th to catch the series premiere on Starz.
