The video shows Detroit’s Flenory brothers — Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory — in the late 1980s as money rolls in and they rise to icon status in the drug world.
“We pool our resources and take over the nation,” Meech (played by Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr.) says in the trailer.
