CLARK Big Meech was done with Atlanta. Back in October of 2005, after he’d given a fake name at a roadblock outside the strip club Pin Ups, he was warned by the local cops to stay out of DeKalb. A month later and one county over, authorities raided the Buckhead house where they believed Meech lived, on Paran Place. At that point, he decided he’d had enough. There were certain rules to the game, even on the other side of the law.

Shalhoup offers an inside look at The Black Mafia Family, the notorious organized crime mob whose drug empire helped launch the careers of several popular hip hop artists. When the brothers began clashing in 2003, the flashy and beloved Big Meech risked it all on a shot at legitimacy in the music industry. At the same time, utilizing a high-stakes wiretap operation, the feds inched toward their goal of destroying the Flenory's empire and ending the reign of a crew suspected in the sale of thousands of kilos of cocaine - and a half-dozen unsolved murders.

They socialized with music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, did business with New York's king of bling Jacob "The Jeweler" Arabo, and built allegiances with rap superstars Young Jeezy and Fabolous. Yet even as BMF was attracting celebrity attention, its crew members struck fear in a city.

This was an excellent read. The work by the various law enforcement agencies was thorough and complete. It's amazing to me how these guys think that their over-the-top ostentaciousness, the expensive jewelry, large houses, excess partying, and top of the line cars etc., all purchased with unverifiable incomes would remain under the law enforcement radar forever. The wiretappings of the kingpins voices as well as the number of bodies attached to members of this crew were sure signs of pending disaster. This saga reminds me of HBO's "The Wire" except on a larger scale. Because of the number of characters and the depths of the events, this work must be made into a TV series or a 3-part movie at least to capture the totality of BMF. Overall, I give this an A+.

My jaw dropped throughout this book. I couldn't believe what I learned about Big Meech and his brother, Terry, and the BMF family. I was so engulfed in this story, it read like a good episode of Law & Order, which I'm a huge fan, and I could NOT put this book down. This book was appropriately named, The Rise and Fall, and I tell ya, when they fell, it was pretty damn hard. I hear now that Big Meech, from inside his prison walls, is planning to do a reality show. That's pretty damn good to do, if the rumors are true. There are several entertainers tied to this mafia family, one being Young Jeezy. Learned a great many things about the cocaine world and trafficking. It's a shame these brothers didn't put that business savvy to proper legal use, but this was the life they chose, and so they have to live it. A great read! Caution: If you have a hard time following detailed drama shows, then you will be lost reading this book. It does tend to move all over the place, and you have to stay right there until the bitter end! [...]

The plot was fascinating but in my opinion the writing was not that great. The author switched topics and jumped from character to character so quickly throughout the book I had a hard time knowing who was who. She did not do a great job of dovetailing everything. I often found myself going back to previous chapters to find references to correlate everything. This is a gritty story and written in it's rawest form would have been fine...but it seemed like the author was using big words just to use them. It was almost as she put more into the writing than the actual story- if that makes sense. I love a good book and this was such a great story to tell but the way it was told kept it from being the page turner it could have been if someone else had written it.

I too could not put this book down. It was so detailed and full of play by play information. But what shocked and surprised me was the amount of crew members that became goverment witnesses. I was not expecting those major players to roll on the Terry like they did, so much for their slogan Death before Dishonor....Before the movie comes out, how about a sequel to update us on how many of those who turned government snitches are still alive!!! Overall a very good book!! I was pleased with the content.

I liked the thick and deep voice of the reader for this audio book. I would've liked Mara to had of delved deeper into Big Meech and Terry's everyday dealings and maneuverings. She didn't really discuss their personal lives. I would've liked to know because I wondered while reading,how could any woman with children or without live in what seemed like constant chaos and fear? Overall, the audio held my attention and gave me a glimpse of the rise and fall of the "BMF".

i always wondered where the motivation for young black men, who had datons and jewelry and loud music in their cars were coming from...

i had already heard on BET, about how women were cheapened and used and what they had to put up with to be in those videos. how they were tossed around like birthday cakes...everybody got a peice. and how they were
convinced this was a way to become famous. and be with ballers.

the men portrayed in this book were ruthless and the only value system shown was for the allmighty dollar. i was saddend. nothing constructive was accomplished by their ill gotten gains.

An excellent examination into a drug syndicate so large and so organized that it took many years and many law enforcement man hours to amass enough evidence to take Big Meech (Demetrius Flenory) and his brother (Terry Flenory) down. Living in the suburbs of Atlanta, I had no idea of just how much of the BMF machine was operating in Atlanta. Also somewhat amazing is the the length of time the BMF cocaine cartel sustained itself in Atlanta and other cities such as Detroit and Los Angeles before coming to an end.

With a chronological treatment, Shalhoup will place you amongst the major players of the Black Mafia Family; providing insight into the BMF lifestyle which includes extravagant parties, numerous homes and expensive jewelry & cars. Details of the criminal activity, the familial strife, and Big Meech's foray into the hip-hop entertainment business, all provide the necessary momentum to create the `Rise' and eventual `Fall' of the Black Mafia Family.

This book was recommended by a friend and as soon as I finished reading it I passed my copy on to someone else who wanted to read it..... a testament to the interest in the BMF story.
Imagine two brothers who come from poverty in Detroit and work until they run one of the nation's most successful companies. They're millionaires, if not billionaires, and they employ hundreds of people. But they are in jail now because their "company" was a drug empire. How they rose and fell is interesting reading nevertheless.
