The Black Mafia Family (BMF) is one of the largest drug-trafficking rings to come out of Detroit, Michigan. It was created by two brothers named Demetrius and Terry Flenory, who also go by Big Meech and Southwest T, respectively. Together the brothers launched a nationwide drug trade that operated out of close to a dozen cities in several states. They mostly dealt cocaine, laundered money, and transported the cash and drugs in stretch limousines with hidden interiors (via DEA). Throughout their run, they took in over $270 million in profits, per The Detroit News. But like many lucrative drug organizations, time eventually caught up with the brothers and their associates in 2005, and the Black Mafia Family was taken down. Both brothers were given 30-year prison sentences in 2008, while several other members of the BMF were given lesser sentences, per the Justice Department.
