Gucci Mane was once told by Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory that he would not be allowed into the Black Mafia Family due to his established reputation as a robber.
In a video released on Tuesday (Feb. 21), DaVinci told Cam Capone News: "Gucci was a part-time jack boy, part-time dope dealer, part-time rapper."
Bleu, the only rapper signing with BMF in the early 2000s, said that Meech was well aware of the Atlanta rapper and that he would stand in clubs looking for people to rob. This ultimately influenced the Detroit kingpin's decision not to align himself with the 1017 Records leader.
"He was friendly, and he used to flirt with the mob, but Meech was constantly telling ni**as, "This ni**a is out here robbing ni**as and sh*t."
Despite his perception as a hindrance, they still had a lot of respect for him.
"We kinda weren't doing that at the time. He always just been a friendly guy, always been the homie." Gucci Mane still collaborated with BMF on his breakout song "So Icy" featuring Jeezy.
