Fans of “BMF” got a boost yesterday when Starz dropped the trailer of the highly anticipated “BMF” limited docuseries.
BMF (Black Mafia Family)
BMF is an acronym for the crime syndicate family, the Black Mafia Family. The existence of BMF was no secret to many in the hip-hop community. However, Curtis Jackson re-introduced the BMF to a broader world through a 2021 scripted drama by the same name. By watching BMF, viewers gained exposure to the notorious “Big Meech” and “South West T.”
The dramatic account was undoubtedly worth its weight. The series was simply fascinating. “BMF” was such a success that it drove demand for a second season. According to the CEO of STARZ,
“The success of BMF demonstrated a continued rise in fan demand and interest in the story of the Flenory brothers.”
So Starz jumped at the chance when it pitched the “Blowing Money Fast” Docuseries with Curtis Jackson as Executive Producer.

“They were excited to dive deeper into the world of Black Mafia Family in the new project with Curtis, Shan, and the teams at G-Unit and Jigsaw.”

The recently released trailer gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect from the upcoming eight-episode docuseries. BMF promises a first-hand account of what Hollywood Outbreak is defining as.
“The notorious drug syndicate, the Black Mafia Family.”
Viewers can expect celebrity insider interviews from White Boy Rick, 2-Chainz, Curtis Jackson (50Cent), and T.I. Additionally, there will be insights from former BMF Members and family members. And audiences will follow the journey of the BMF founders from their days as corner boys to the end of the BMF reign.
The series promises to be comprehensive, an all-access pass with, as Hollywood Outbreak notes,” an exclusive look at the epic family feuds, high-stakes drug deals, suspicious murders, and champagne-drenched parties attended by hip-hop royalty.”
For fans who want a deeper look into the real-life account underlying the explosive Starz Drama, the docuseries will premiere on October 23. It offers the perfect opportunity for a deeper dive before the return of the series drama, which will air in January 2023.
