In an interview with Detroit’s CoCo Foolish and Mr. Chase in the Morning radio show, rapper Rick Ross spoke briefly on meeting with BMF (Black Mafia Family) leaders in Miami.
â€œThey was in Miami for a long time man,â€ Rick Ross explained. â€œWhile we on that subject I gotta salute the big homie J-Bo, you know what I’m saying. I had the opportunity to meet you once or twiceâ€¦in Miami, but my homie was actually J-Bo who I actually got to kick it with.â€
The rapper pays homage to the now crippled drug trafficking organization in his song â€œBMF (Blowin Money Fast).â€ On the track Rick Ross raps, â€œI think I’m Big Meech, Larry Hoover, whipping work, hallelujah.â€
â€œThey influenced the streets on a whole â€˜nother level,â€ said Ross. â€œAnd that was one of the reasons the record was even made because when you touch generations the way he did on many different levels I feel like it was only right to pay homage to the O.G.â€
Big Meech, one of the leaders of the BMF, is expected to be released from an Atlanta prison in 2031.
