May 4, 2020 – Black Mafia Family co-founder Terry (Southwest T) Flenory was released early from prison Monday morning. The gangster gods shined brightly on Southwest T last week when he was granted sentence-relief and ordered to be let loose 6 years earlier than expected.
The 50-year old Flenory and his more well-known older brother, Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory, were convicted in 2007 of leading the “BMF,” the biggest urban cocaine empire in American history, making hundreds of millions of dollars and establishing franchise crews all-across the country. They both pleaded guilty and received 30-year prison sentences from U.S. District Court Judge Avern Cohn in their hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
Less than two years ago, Cohn granted Southwest T an official sentence reduction, moving up his out-date from 2032 all the way to August 2026. He’s expected to return to Detroit Wednesday to live with family.
Big Meech, 51, is currently locked up in a federal prison in Oregon and isn’t scheduled for release until October 2031. He is name-checked often in hip-hop tracks and a staple reference in the drug-dealer inspired Trap Rap genre.
The Flenory brothers started BMF in Detroit in the early 1990s. By the end of the decade, Big Meech was living in Atlanta and Southwest T was located in Los Angeles. Together, they oversaw 23 strategically placed satellite crews in different city centers coast-to-coast and took over more than half of the nation’s coke market. The feds finally brought the Flenorys and their whole highly-structured drug kingdom down in October 2005 with the historic Operation Motor City bust.
