Who is Lil Meech?
Demetrius ‘Lil Meech’ Flenory Jr. was born in Miami, Florida USA, on 22 April 2000 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He’s an actor and rapper, but who’s perhaps still known best for being the son of Big Meech, the co-founder of the Black Mafia Family (BMF), a money laundering and drug trafficking organization.
Early life and education
Lil Meech was raised in Miami as an only child, by his father and his mother Latarra Eutsey, who prefers to stay away from the media’s attention, and has apparently been working as a Delta Airlines flight attendant for the past three decades; Lil Meech’s father has been incarcerated since his son was five, but they apparently talk on ‘the phone every day.
He became interested in rap music when he was around 12 years old, and often rapped for his friends. Lil Meech was physically quite active while attending a local high school, as he enjoyed playing football and soccer, while he was still determined to try and succeed in rap music.
He matriculated in 2018, and then didn’t enroll at college.
Lil Meech’s career
He launched his career as a rapper in 2019, with the release of his single “Bad Habits”; the song includes a 30-second conversation between Lil Meech and his father.
Without having any previous acting experience, he was cast to star in the 2021 biographical crime series “BMF”, portraying his father.
It was created by Randy Huggins, also starred Russell Hornsby and Da’Vinchi, and follows the lives of Big Meech and his brother Terry ‘Southwest T’ Flenory, founders of BMF. The series aired nine episode in its first season, and has recently been renewed for another.
Critics have stated that Lil Meech’s acting was brilliant, even though it was his debut, and he was then invited to play Travis in the 2022 episode “Trying to Get to Heaven Before They Close the Door” of the drama series “Euphoria”. It was created by Sam Levinson, stars Zendaya, Hunter Schafer and Angus Cloud, and follows the lives of several high school students; the series has been airing since 2019, and has won 18 awards, including three Primetime Emmys, while it’s been nominated for 49 other awards.
Most recently, in 2022 Lil Meech played Syl in the drama movie “Good News”, written and directed by Tim Sutton, and which starred Machine Gun Kelly and Maddie Hasson; it follows the final days of a problematic musician, and was nominated for a Berlin International Film Festival Panorama Audience Award for Feature Film.
Lil Meech produced the episodes “Love All, Trust Few” and “See It… Touch It… Obtain It” of the series “BMF”.
Love life and girlfriend
Lil Meech prefers to keep the details of his love life to himself, but has still allowed his fans to have a glimpse into it.
He was once in a relationship with Sabrina Peterson, an American social media star who’s followed by close to 300,000 people on Instagram. The two apparently broke up after several months, when she was sentenced to spend a year behind bars for cutting her sitter; according to Sabrina’s Instagram account, she has a son and is today single.
Lil Meech hasn’t spoken of any other girls whom he has perhaps dated, so as of February 2022, he seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

About Black Mafia Family
Demetrius Edward ‘Big Meech’ Flenory was born in Detroit, Michigan USA, on 21 June 1968 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality. Big Meech’s brother – Terry P. O. Lee ‘Southwest T’ Flenory – was born a year and a half later.
The boys were still attending a local high school when they began selling bags of cocaine in the streets, for $50 each.
In 1985 they founded the Black Mafia Family, and in the following 15 years, the two men established a cocaine distribution network in more than 10 US states, and apparently had more than 500 people working for them. Something happened between the two in 2003, which led Terry to move to Los Angeles and run his own crime organization, and the brothers have rarely spoken since them.
They had also established their promotion agency and hip hop record label BMF Entertainment, and worked with various popular rappers, such as Jay-Z, Shawty Lo and Diddy, however, the agency was mostly used for money laundering.
The police had been monitoring the brothers since the early ‘90s, but their main investigation, ‘Operation Motor City Mafia’, began on 28 October 2003.
On 11 April 2004, they caught one of their main distributors Jabari Hayes with close to 100kg of cocaine on him, and then in September the drug dealer Decarlo Hoskins, who told them that he was working with the two brothers. On 8 June 2005, an unknown person told the police everything he knew about BMF, also naming the brothers.
More than 30 BMF members were arrested in October 2005, and Big Meech and his brother have both since been in prison. An additional 16 members were arrested on 15 June 2006, and 16 others on 26 July 2007. The final arrest was made on 17 July 2009, when the police caught Vernon Marcus Coleman, making the total number of BMF people arrested 150.
