Bleu DaVinci, who was signed to BMF Entertainment as the label’s sole rapper in the early 2000s, has raised concerns about how his role is going to translate into the series and warned 50 Cent about getting it right.
As usual, 50 brushed off Bleu’s comments on Thursday (October 21) and clowned him by posting a video on his Instagram using a scene from The Five Heartbeats suggesting he’s on the outside looking in.
Fif labeled Bleu a “cooperator” in the caption, referencing the rumors that DaVinci worked with authorities to receive a reduced prison sentence. (He served five years behind bars for his ties to the BMF crime organization.)
While Bleu DaVinci has made his feelings towards the show known, BMF kingpin Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory has the entirely opposite attitude towards 50 Cent‘s STARZ series.
On Friday (October 22), Fif shared a message from the incarcerated Black Mafia Family co-founder addressed to his son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., thanking 50 for shining a light on the Black Mafia Family in a tasteful way and helping to put his family on a “legitimate” path when so many others have abandoned them.
“Keep in touch so we can talk about the 3rd and 4th episode and whatever you out there doing all positive vibes!” read Big Meech’s message, dated October 8. “I really love 50 for helping us make this happen for us.
“It’s like he the only one to sencerely [sic] come thru and put us on the 100% legitimate successful path and he never owed us shit but gave us ‘everything’ when almost all the sports and entertainers I’ve known most of my life never spoke up or helped us get on the path to legitimacy!
“What 50 has done for us to me is ‘priceless’ and there’s nothing we meaning you and I won’t do for him ever if needed! I love you son with all my heart 4 life & death your dad the real Big Meech B.M.F. immortal!”
