Now I see why they make songs about Big Meech, he is a Boss of all Bosses. I'm not condoning his lifestyle,however, if you have to be a drug lord than you might as well be extraordinary at it..

I liked the thick and deep voice of the reader for this audio book. I would've liked Mara to had of delved deeper into Big Meech and Terry's everyday dealings and maneuverings. She didn't really discuss their personal lives. I would've liked to know because how could any woman with children or without live in what seemed like constant chaos and fear. Overall, the audio held my attention and gave me a glimpse of the rise and fall of the "BMF".

i really wanted to learn more about Big Meech and not necessarily all the members of BMF (which is what happens). lots of great information and it's obvious that the author did her homework. yet still, this came across as more of a textbook than a page turner...
"BMF" is full of information. This is a good read for someone who does not know about the BMF. I sometimes got lost in all of the "name" dropping.
