‘BMF’: Episode 7 Was a Game-Changer for Hip-Hop Fans
Starz’s drama series BMF is closing out its first season. The series is based on the true-life story of the infamous Flenory brothers. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi) built one of the biggest drug enterprises in the country. However, they began their careers as teens, selling $50 bags of cocaine on the streets of Detroit.
The ’80s set series has been a passion project for executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson for some time. However, episode 107 was a game-changer for hip-hop fans overall.
What happened in ‘BMF’ episode 107?
In episode 7, “All In the Family” Big Meech and Southwest T were still dealing with the fallout of Lamar’s (Eric Kofi Abrefa) murderous rage. Though they’d gone into hiding, their mother and sister were deeply affected by Nicole’s young boyfriend being killed.
The official description for the episode read, “Blood spills into the streets when Meech devises a plan for revenge, forcing Lamar to seek shelter with someone close.”
In the episode, B-Mickie (Myles Truitt) also uncovered Kato’s (Ajiona Alexus) connection with Lamar, and Wanda, the mother of Terry’s son gave Southwest T an ultimatum. Unable to move any weight amid so much police presence, the brothers and their organization were also at a crossroads.
Episode 7 was a game-changer for hip-hop fans
In addition to the narrative, episode 107 of BMF was a game-changer for hip-hop fans. Snoop Dogg appeared in the episode as Pastor Swift, Eminem had a cameo in the series as the infamous White Boy Rick and 50 Cent directed the episode. There has never been more hip-hop star power in an episode of TV at one time.
“That’s the power of hip-hop,” showrunner Randy Huggins told TV Line. “Tell me when five hip-hop stars have been on one episodic drama? You can’t, because it’s never been done. The fact that we had 50 Cent directing? Come on. That’s huge. And he used his connections to pull in his boy Eminem. We’re making history here.”
When will the ‘BMF’ Season 1 finale premiere?
The eighth and final episode of BMF season 1 is set to debut on Starz, November 21, 2021, at 9 PM ET/PT. The finale is titled “The King of Detroit” and fans are anxious to see if Meech and Southwest T will come to blows with Lamar. Fans also want to know if B-Mickie will protect Kato after she revealed her secret.
The official description for the episode reads, “In an effort to expand into new territory, Meech discovers a disturbing alliance then hatches a plan to eliminate the threat; Terry is forced to make a life-altering decision.”
We also know that Detective Bryant (Steve Harris) is coming after Meech and that Lamar has hatched a plan through Kato to also take the eldest Flenory brother down. We’re not sure what to expect just yet, but whatever does occur will undoubtedly set fans up for an explosive season 2 premiere.
