Gucci Mane once wanted to join the Black Mafia Family, but was turned down by Big Meech — according to Bleu DaVinci.
The revelation was made during DaVinci’s interview with Cam Capone News, where he explained how he met Guwop. According to DaVinci, Gucci wanted to join BMF, but Big Meech decided against it given the rapper’s reputation as a known robber.
At the time, Meech didn’t want any loose cannons in his collective, and he felt Gucci could be one given the stories about him sticking people up on the regular.
“Gucci’s a street n-gga. He just be outside all the time and shit,” DaVinci said. “Gucci was like a part-time jack boy, part-time dope dealer, part-time rapper. Gucci was a slash man. I knew Gucci before I knew Jeezy.”
He continued: “Gucci used to always be in the club, on the wall looking at n-ggas with a drink in his hand with his hat down, trying to get him a victim. Meech knew him.
“He was cool, and he used to try to get down with the mob, but Meech was telling n-ggas like, ‘Nah man, this n-gga be out here robbing n-ggas and shit. We can’t have no n-ggas that’s known robbers.’
“It wasn’t like he was some robber. N-ggas knew he would get down on a n-gga type shit. So we kinda wasn’t doing that at the time. He always just been a friendly and always been the homie.”
Gucci Mane did manage to work with BMF on the music front thanks to his breakthrough single “So Icy” featuring Jeezy, who was closely associated with the crew during his early career.
As for Bleu DaVinci, the Los Angeles native was signed to BMF Entertainment as the label’s sole rapper in the early 2000s.
Fans may get to see all this unfold in 50 Cent’s hit TV series BMF, which is based on the lives of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory who founded the Black Mafia Family in Detroit in 1985.
The series is currently on its second season and recently received a renewal for a third.
The announcement came shortly after the premiere of season two last month, which brought in 4.1 million multiplatform viewers. 50 celebrated the show’s success and renewal by hyping three BMF spin-offs in the pipeline.
