Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is not playing any games when it comes to the cast for his new series ‘Black Mafia Family.’ On Thursday, Deadline reported that three new cast members are joining the show, including hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg and actresses La La Anthony and Serayah. The real life story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory inspired the drama series. The Flenory’s are two brothers from southwest Detroit who became one of the most influential crime families in US history.
Snoop Dogg, La La Anthony and Serayah will work alongside Big Meech’s son Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. Lil Meech portrays his father on BMF.
Snoop Dogg will be playing the role of the Flenory family’s spiritual counselor ‘Pastor Swift.’ Swift is described as a man of “The Word” with the flava of an ex-convict. He evolves from an advisor trying to keep the Flenorys’ out of trouble, into Black Mafia Family’s confidante.
Serayah and La La will star in recurring guest roles. Empire’s Serayah will play ‘Lori Walker,’ Big Meech’s girlfriend and mother to his daughter ‘Neeka.’ Walker is a college athlete who initially fell in love with Meech’s charm, but later refocuses all her attention on their daughter.
Power’s La La Anthony will star as ‘Markaisha Taylor,’ who is the wife of a drug dealer in Big Meech and Southwest T’s friend circle. Taylor develops a close friendship with Terry which leads to a lovers affair that becomes dangerous for the Black Mafia Family.
