Demetrius Flenory Jr. Is Confident Meech Will Watch Out for Enemies in BMF Season 3

It’s a Detroit vs. Everybody mentality in BMF season three as Meech has officially relocated from Detroit to Atlanta in search of expanding BMF during the height of the city’s international expansion. While Terry remains in Detroit to maintain the BMF enterprise and to start a new life for his family with Lawanda, Meech learns the move to Atlanta will be full of pleasant and unpleasant surprises.

In celebration of BMF’s third season, The Koalition spoke to Demetrius Flenory Jr. about Meech’s big move to Atlanta, expanding the business, Meech seeking approval from his parents, and keeping an eye out on unknown enemies.

In season three’s premiere episode, Meech’s goal is not only to expand the BMF business in Atlanta, but to form alliances with influential people across Atlanta. But not everyone is welcoming to Meech in Atlanta, and he faces an array of challenges as he struggles to understand the rules of the Atlanta game. However, not all is lost when Meech meets Remi Ransom, another possible ally who offers his support but also makes viewers question his trustworthiness.

“Meech is very aware a battle can ensue because he never puts a lot of trust in anybody. As you can see, Meech is just fearless and courageous. But he’s also strong, he believes in himself and it’s hard to knock him out the box. Meech is a type of person who thinks hard about his choices and decision making. It’s hard to catch him off guard, he’s always on point. What helps Meech the most is his intuition and his gift to be able to read the rooms and read the environments. [He can] already tell if something’s going to happen or stop it before it happens.”

Things soon go array when Meech discovers existing crews already beefing for territory—the semi-automatic-weapon-wielding, deadly Miami Killa’s, led by a Haitian immigrant named Glock; and factions of the too-numerous-to-count Atlanta Boyz, who follow an older G from the Techwood Projects called Remi Ransom—view him as a threat and have no intention of ceding their turf to BMF or anyone else.

Meech links up with the late Ty Washington’s crew and promises to put them back on the map, but there is dissension in the ranks since he is an outsider and does not know the lay of this land. It’s a good thing he is a fast learner, as trouble and enemies seem to follow him wherever he goes. That includes inside a high-end strip club, where he meets a hypnotic exotic dancer (Angel) who opens his world in more ways than one. But can she, or anyone in this new city, be trusted? Meech will need to find allies fast, because soon there’s more than just rival gangs on his tail. Can Meech handle the pressure of becoming the new boss of Atlanta?

“Atlanta is best for business. He wants to leave Detroit and go to Atlanta because Atlanta is the hub of the United States. All the freeways connect to different parts of the country and it’s easier to expand his business that way. Terry, his brother, doesn’t agree with what Meech is trying to do, so he stays behind in his hometown Detroit with that crew and the family. [But] Meech sees something bigger. Meech is trying to get down to Atlanta without his family or his crew. He’s trying to navigate [this] by himself because he knows he can do it. He has to step up and be the boss. He knows has to use different tactics to get what he wants. He’s moving in somebody’s town and people don’t take to a random person setting up shop from a different town. People don’t really agree with those type of things, so we’re able to see Meech fearlessly navigating through Atlanta connecting all the dots. He needs to expand his business and grow.”

Back at home, Charles and Lucille’s marriage continues to fall apart after Charles’ affair. With finances continuing to increase, the soon-to-be-ex couple are continuing to struggle as divorce is another expense neither can afford. Even though, they disapprove of their sons’ business, Meech and Terry could offer them a slice of the American Dream.

“He loves his parents, so he’s trying to show them he can step up and be the man they need him to be by taking care of them. They just don’t agree with the things he’s doing [or how he] gets money, but Meech is coming from perspective where he’s just trying to help them keep the light on and keep a roof over their head because they’re working two and three jobs and still can’t afford to pay the bills.”

Will Meech find success in Atlanta? Will his parents except the extra financial help? To learn more, check out the full interview in the video above and The Koalition’s interview with BMF Showrunner Heather Zuhlke.
