Publisher's Summary

The story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his legendary street crew, the Black Mafia Family (BMF), is the tale of a modern-day don who aspired to be something more: a credible name in hip-hop. It is a tale built on the seduction of vast sums of money, a seduction that pulled in hip-hop stars but that also had a darker side.
While BMF was able to attract increasingly mainstream stars, its crew members grew notorious for a cult of violence that threatened a host of other celebrities, including the families of pop icon Bobby Brown and Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin. BMF’s ruthlessness caused them to rise to incredible power, but wanting even more lead to their downfall.

The Narration is Amazing!

The book is not bad but it is Hassan Johnson who saves this book. Everything in the book needed to be put in a larger context, which is why the specific information sounds so disjointed. Worth a listen though.

BMF = Big F'ing Mistake

I'm half way through this book and I honestly have no idea why I'm supposed to care or be interested in anything that is happening. It's just not a well put together book, it doesn't ever flow or hit a stride and it's boring. I knew nothing about this book going in, just picked it up onsale and figured I'd give it a try - my opinion of which is in my review title. Maybe if you already knew the history of what happened and knew the people involved and actually cared about any of this you might find it interesting as it's not a horrible book, it's just not an interesting book in any way.

Anyways as I said I'm half way through the book and giving up and moving on to something else. Maybe one day I'll come back to this -- but I doubt it.

As for the reader he does an acceptable job. The people saying this isn't english or they can't understand are being dishonest and horribly exaggerating. I've listened to hundreds of books and I've heard bad readers, normally the ones actually hired by Audible are by far the worst amateurs I've ever heard, but this guy is fine, he's not great but he's not bad and he's appropriate for the subject matter.
