BMF Series Revealed
The Atlanta premiere of “Black Mafia Family”, known to the culture as BMF , was nothing short of entertaining.
50 Cent proves to be a showstopper for every production. He hasn’t fully dropped the mic, but he’s fully stepped into the executive producer role. On Thursday, September 23, the rapper turned serial entrepreneur hit the stage to show fans that his grind is unmatched and he will continue to use his power and influence to ensure that more real Black stories are told.
Getting It By Any Means
Although plenty of people know the “I’ll Whip Ya Head Boy” rapper for his antics, he is widely respected by the culture for his drive and authenticity. In fact, 50 Cent acquired his artist name from the infamous robber Kelvin “50 Cent” Martin. Furthermore, its literal translation is loose change. 50 lives by the idea of getting it by any means. While he explores new avenues to expand his wealth, Fiddy opens the door for new talent to breakthrough on the small screen.
“I want to start by telling you I’m really excited about this project,” 50 said.
His sentiments about the show were consigned. While on stage, BMF showrunner Randy Huggins noted that “This story is true, this is real.”
He continued, “ I been to shady spots in Atlanta and Detroit to get this story.”
During the screening, Detroiters definitely made their presence known, shouting out familiar spots that popped up in various scenes like 12th Street and Hitsville U.S.A. Others anticipate seeing what “The 50 Boyz” are truly about.
It is important to remember that older siblings need to be role models for their younger siblings because they clearly observe their every move and “soak up information like a sponge.” And the information they acquire can result in dire consequences. Regardless of the fact, the Flenory brothers sought out to be kings of the “D”. Watch the trailer in anticipation for BMF’s impending series world premiere.
Following the premiere, the crowd erupted as soon as the instrumental to “Big Rich Town” played. The show didn’t stop there. Premiere attendees were in for another surprise. Not only did 50 perform his classic hits like “P.I.M.P” and “I’m The Man”, 50 put on a concert with his hip-hop friends.
Attendees were entertained with performances by 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Lil Duval, DaBaby, and T.I.
T.I. successfully ignited the crowd with his challenge to face off 50 in a Verzuz.
“50 I’m waiting on you.” Then he quickly followed up with his congratulatory remarks.
“Congratulations man to my nephew Lil Meech, he said. “Congratulations to 50 for bringing this sh*t to life.”
After shouting out a few of his friends doing bids or just getting home, the “About The Money” rapper concluded: “Welcome to the greatest show on Earth, n***a,” Tip exclaimed.
