Saweetie (Bel-Air, Grown-ish) will portray “Keeya.” Born and raised on the streets of St. Louis, Keeya is smart, sexy, and filled with swagger. A former athlete who went to college on a softball scholarship, Keeya is a fierce competitor on the streets.

Grammy-winning performer Lil Baby makes his acting debut as “Payne.” Atlanta born and bred, Payne works as one of Stacks’ foot soldiers and is eager to learn.

Cynthia Bailey (Cruel Instruction, Games People Play) will play “Gloria,” a hard-working nurse and wife of Detective Bryant. They have no money for lawyers who can help their son, but she angrily orders Bryant to “fix” the mess he created.

As previously reported, 2 Chainz and Ne-Yo are also joining the cast of the drug distribution drama.

Coming on board in recurring roles are Bechir Sylvain as “Glock,” Taylor Sele as “Dr. Maurice,” Kadianne Whyte as “Angel,” Ren King as “Henrietta ‘Henri’ Andreas,” Morgan Alexandria as “Detective Colbie Amberson,” Christopher B. Duncan as “Blaze,” and Cedric Martin as “Caesar.”

Series stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr. (“Demetrius Flenory”), Da’Vinchi (“Terry Flenory”), Russell Hornsby (“Charles Flenory”), Michole Briana White (“Lucille Flenory”), Steve Harris (“Detective Bryant”), Kelly Hu (“Detective Jin”), and LaLa Anthony (“Markisha”) are all returning for season 3.

When the second season ended, karma and the streets finally caught up with Det. Bryant. His son ended up in a world of trouble and Bryant’s career was on the line as his corruption was exposed. After years of trying to shut down the Black Mafia Family, Meech and Terry called checkmate on Bryant, but don’t count the sly detective out just yet.

BMF is inspired by the true story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.

The two siblings rose from the streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s to create Black Mafia Family — one of the most influential drug rings in the U.S. As their drug trafficking and money laundering empire grew, BMF expanded into the music industry in the early 2000s.

“Big Meech” is portrayed on the series by his son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr.,  while Da’Vinchi plays Terry.

The series is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, through his G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for Starz.

Detroit native Randy Huggins created the series and serves as executive producer with showrunner and executive producer Heather Zuhlke. Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series.

BMF season 3 premieres Friday, March 1, 2024 on Starz.
