A Hummer limousine once owned by The Black Mafia Family (BMF) that was sold at an auction was seized from its new owners last week, after authorities made a shocking discovery.
Police learned that the vehicle, which was being used to shuttle teens to proms and others to weddings, was concealing almost a million dollars in cash, as well as an assortment of semi-automatic weapons.
The stretched 2003 black hummer was seized when police raided a BMF stash house in an upper-class northwest Atlanta Neighborhood, around 2004.
While BMF members cleaned out the house before the raid, the Hummer was seized because BMF members were taken by surprise and didn’t have keys to a car that was blocking the oversized SUV.
The vehicle was seized and auctioned off at least three times, before it landed in the hands of four unidentified owners, who have not been charged with any crimes.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, agents learned that the Hummer was carrying $875,000 and a cache of weapons during recent “debriefings” from BMF members, who have been convicted on a variety of drug charges.
Just last week BMF Entertainment’s main rapper Bleu DaVinci received a five-year prison sentence for his role in distributing cocaine for the multi-state drug racket, which operated in Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, Florida and Georgia.
In an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com from prison, Bleu DaVinci revealed details about BMF, his case and his plans for the future.
DaVinci was one of nine remaining defendants in the case against BMF.
“I got hit with five years and four months with no criminal history and a minor role,” DaVinci divulged to AllHipHop.com. “I’m probably going to be two years to the halfway house because I got a year here already served and I got the drug program for smoking all that weed. The judge gave me the drug program that gives you a year off the offense and six months to the halfway house. So I already got two and a half years in on a sentence of five years and four months. So I’m going to be out real soon handling my business. Also shouts to all my n****s on the street, I got my n**** D from the ATL in here, a gang of ATL dudes. I got Smurf out of Baltimore. I got dudes in here from LA, Chicago, New York.”
The drug network’s founders, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory were each sentenced to 30 years in prison in September.
“He’s good, he’s holding his head like me,” DaVinci said of BMF’s founder Big Meech. “He took the responsibility for his actions and took it like a man. That’s all he knows what to do.”
United States Attorney David E. Nahmias countered DaVinci’s optimistic outlook with a harsh warning to those who might be looking to follow, emulate or recreate BMF’s drug dealing empire.
“These sentencing’s help bring to a close the Justice Department’s successful dismantling of the Black Mafia Family, a coast-to-coast drug empire once so brash and powerful that it purchased freeway billboards proclaiming that the world was theirs,” Nahmias told AllHipHop.com in a statement “Their ‘world’ – one built on illegal drugs and gun violence – has crumbled, thanks to the hard work of many law enforcement agents and prosecutors. Now all that is left for the BMF criminals is prison time.”
