Although he looks buff and healthy in the photo, the Detroit News reported that Big Meech, 52, suffers from various ailments including hypertension and cardiac problems.

The Black Mafia Family leader, real name Demetrius Edward Flenory, and his brother Terry "Southwest T" Flenory began selling cocaine on the streets of Detroit during their high school years in the late 1980s.

The brothers expanded their drug operation and established cocaine distribution rings in numerous U.S. states.

A two-year federal investigation began after Meech and Terry began to feud over Meech's flashy lifestyle. Terry moved to California and establishing his own drug organization.

In November 2007, the brothers pleaded guilty to running a continuing criminal enterprise. They were sentenced to 30 years in prison each.

Terry was granted an early release in 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Meech was denied early release and is serving out his sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sheridan, Oregon.

He is scheduled for release on May 5, 2032, around his 64th birthday.

Last week Black Mafia Family (BMF) kingpin Terry "Southwest T" Flenory, 50, was released from a federal prison after serving 12 years of a 30-year sentence on drug trafficking charges.

Now that Flenory is a free man, he is calling in all the under-the-table loans he made to rappers before he went in.

Flenory apparently tapped 50 Cent to put out the word that the BMF mafioso is calling in his outstanding loans. The short list of "loan recipients" include Jeezy and Irv Gotti.

Gotti is allegedly into Flenory for a cool million. The amount Jeezy owes was not disclosed publicly.

"how you borrow a million dollars from street ni99as, see them get 30 [years]. and don't put nothing on the books," Fiddy wrote in the caption of a photo of Gotti signing a contract. "that 30 [years] sounded like forever didn't it. well @bmfboss_swt_263 home now bitch! talking about you signing deals, where the money punk?"

In a follow up post that showed a man holding a large hunting knife to Gotti's ear, Fiddy wrote:

"boy you best be coming up with that money you borrowed it’s Monday fool. @irvgotti187 pay your debt..."

50 Cent called out Jeezy on Instagram last week. Apparently, Jeezy paid back Flenory the money he owed with interest. 50 Cent confirmed Jeezy settled his outstanding loan -- after borrowing the cash from Hollywood mogul Sean Combs:

"at jeezy all checked in, he called puffy and got on with @bmfboss_swt_263 every thing all good. #starz."

Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory (right), one of the co-founders of the notorious cocaine drug ring Black Mafia Family (BMF), is hoping to leave a federal prison, citing Covid-19 concerns after thousands of inmates fell ill or tested positive for the virus.

Meech's brother Terry Flenory is being released from a federal prison on Tuesday amid the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S.

According to the Detroit News, Big Meech also requested a release after 40 federal inmates died of Covid-19 and more than 2,300 prisoners were infected.

Terry Flenory was the brains behind the Black Mafia Family. His brother, Meech, provided the muscle and oversaw distribution along the East coast.

Terry, 50, and Meech, 51, were both sentenced to serve 30 years in federal prison in 2008 for heading a criminal cocaine syndicate with ties to the Mexican cartels during a 15-year crime spree based in Atlanta and California.

The investigation into the brothers and their crime family was launched after bodies began dropping in the streets of Atlanta, including Sean "Puffy" Combs's bodyguard Anthony "Wolf" Jones.

Jones, 36, died in a hail of bullets outside a Buckhead nightclub following an argument with Meech over a woman in 2003.

Meech was arrested hours later when he sought treatment for a gunshot wound at a north Atlanta hospital after the shootout.

The shootout prompted the Buckhead Coalition to close all nightclubs and bars at 2 a.m.

Once the ordinance went into effect, many Buckhead nightclubs and bars that catered to Black patrons closed their doors permanently.
