Meech and his brother, Terry Lee Flenory, or "Southwest T", founded the criminal enterprise in Detroit during the late '80s. The Black Mafia Family dealt cocaine across the United States with hubs in Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California, making it easy to connect with the drug cartels south of the American border. Big Meech reportedly handled operations in Atlanta, while Southwest T was responsible for the L.A. branch of the organization. In 2000, the brothers founded BMF Entertainment in an effort to legitimize their business; soon, they became associated with a variety of acts, including Young Jeezy.
