The anticipation for 50 Cent’s Black Mafia Family series on STARZ was at a fever pitch prior to its September premiere. Fans of both 50 Cent and the Black Family Mafia story were anxious to see how it would translate to the small screen.
But one person who actually has close ties to BMF isn’t so sure he’s going to like what he sees. Bleu DaVinci, who was signed to BMF Entertainment and served five-years in prison for his association with the drug trafficking and money laundering organization, took his thoughts to Instagram Live and warned 50 Cent to get his depiction right or there’d be hell to pay.
“The only thing I’m saying is that if they handle my name wrong, I’m coming to see you,” he said. “The writers, the producers, the directors, the executive producers, y’all play with my name — I’m telling y’all right now. Y’all play with my name, it’s up. Period.”

Bleu DaVinci also promised if he was portrayed inaccurately, he’d make sure Black Mafia Family would get shut down — no matter what it took.
“There won’t be no more shooting,” he continued. “No more filming that shit. I’m gonna try to find a way to fuck up everything about it if you play with your name. Soon as I get the first report, ‘Aye, bro, they playin’ with your name,’ I’m coming. Just already know. Have your security beefed up … ’cause I’m gonna give it to they ass, too. I ain’t finna play with my name. I’m gonna go all the way out.
“I’m not finna go through life with people playin’ with my name. That’s a wrap. So n-ggas zip that shit up if that was your plan, zip that up, come with another plan. If not, you already know what’s up. Get ready. Be ready. Everybody with you.”
Black Mafia Family is inspired by the true story of BMF founders Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T.” It has already been renewed for a second season.
