Education and early life

Demetrius has chosen ‘Lil Meech’ as his stage name because of his father being known as ‘Big Meech’. He studied at a local high school and was into several activities during his time there, as he was a member of a school band, appeared in a couple of school plays, and played soccer.
Demetrius matriculated in 2018 and then enrolled at University of Nevada, Las Vegas to study business; he dropped out after he was invited to star in the series “BMF”, as he had to move to Los Angeles and take acting lessons.

Who is his father Big Meech?
Demetrius Flenory Sr., also known as ‘Big Meech’ is a notorious figure in the world of drug trafficking and organized crime. He was born on 21 June 1968, in Detroit, Michigan USA, and together with his brother Terry Flenory rose to infamy as they co-founded the Black Mafia Family, one of the most powerful and influential drug trafficking organizations in the US.
Big Meech’s criminal career began in the streets of Detroit, where he and his brother Terry started selling drugs at a young age; their illegal enterprise quickly expanded, and they moved into more significant drug markets, such as Atlanta and Los Angeles. The BMF became known for its extravagant lifestyle, which included luxury cars, mansions, and connections to the hip-hop music industry.
One of the factors that contributed to the BMF’s success was their ability to form strategic alliances with various criminal organizations and influential individuals; they forged connections with major drug suppliers and distributors, allowing them to move large amounts of cocaine and other narcotics across the country.
However, the lavish and high-profile lifestyle of the Flenory brothers eventually drew the attention of law enforcement agencies; the DEA, FBI and others launched a multi-year investigation into the BMF’s operations. In 2005, this investigation resulted in the arrest of Big Meech and Terry.
Big Meech and his brother faced a number of charges, including drug trafficking, money laundering and conspiracy to commit murder. In 2008, Big Meech and Terry both pleaded guilty to various charges, and were sentenced to lengthy prison terms, Big Meech a 30-year sentence, and Terry 20-years.
Despite their incarceration, the legacy of the Black Mafia Family continued to influence the hip-hop culture and the criminal underworld; Big Meech’s story has been the subject of documentaries, books and the series “BMF”.
