Big Meech Topics
You either got time or money, can't have em both. Nigga with money, dont have no time. Nigga with time, don't have no money. We don't have a lot of time around here cause time is money.
Whatever I plan on working on when I come out, I lan on working on while Im in jail. I have a lot of options; Ive got things to keep me busy with this movie stuff. I feel like thats a blessing in disguise that will keep me busy while Im locked up. I mean, I cant benefit for a crime. So Im not benefiting from it, but I am assisting in the project to make it as close to the truth as possible.
Ill come out at 60. I got three years in. I got the drug program, which will take a year off plus six months [in a] halfway house, so thats like 18 months total. So 30 years is like 25. I got three full years in plus the drug program will take off about five, so I will do about 20 more. Thats without the laws changing and not taking my plea back and I would just have to stick it out with this time.
What Im saying is, the charges were facing was a minimum of 30 to life. I thought that I was signing a plea with a minimum of 20-30, but I didnt. I actually signed a 30 to life plea, which the judge has the option to give me, or my brother 20 if he wanted to or somewhere in that range. But we actually signed a 30 to life plea, which is what makes me want to take my plea back. Thats where Im at right now; thats why Im trying to get back into the courtroom because 30 is too much.
All I want is a sentence reduction. Im not trying to go to trial unless I have to. Plus, its a way for me to get back in the courtroom without my brother because they wouldnt grant me a severance. To go into the courtroom and go to trial with my brother, with all the evidence that they had against him would have made me look guilty.
Well, the thing is I just got sentenced September 12th 2008 to 30 years. And what it is, is that I got up until a year to file the necessary paperwork and get back in court. Im just trying to get a sentence reduction. I could end up taking my plea back and going to trial or if they came with a sentence reduction if they talking 20 years and they dont want to go trial then Ill take the 20. Ill be fine with that, you know.
I had been trying to do something with music for all of my life. Ive always been a fan of music; I always loved music from the early 80s. I used to break-dance, DJ, all of that. So I always loved music. Its just that once I got myself established, you know, I started out in the streets doing the wrong thing first. But once I got my money together and myself established, instead of somebody thats trying to rap, like Bleu and them, getting out there trying to sell drugs or anything to make their careers flourish, I [thought I] could help them with what I have. And thats basically what it was between Bleu, Jeezy and everybody. I was trying to help them out. Jeezy was even rapping before he met me. But nobody was listening to the shit until he was around me, until we was listening to it and Im making/paying the djs play it. Thats basically how it is. I always wanted to be in the music business. A lot of my friends [have] always been in entertainment. If you hang out in Atlanta, everybody t
I had a hard time believing that a lot of these guys really did much of what they said they did because it was so hard for me. The feds, everywhere I look they was sending memos to radio stations, telling them not to play my stuff, our music, telling them that we drug-dealing murderers. From the radio stations to the clubs, from Atlanta to Miami, it was ridiculous. I didnt believe it until one particular radio station in Atlanta had let it be known that this had happened, they had got a memo. And actually it was the program director over at one of the radio stations. And thats when I said, Man, this shit is serious. They was really trying theyre best to block whatever it is we trying to do. Which all we been trying to do is be successful from the time that they tried to say that I did the double homicide in Buckhead. I put the billboards up because these people had put my face in the paper as being a murderer, when Im trying to run this company.
You know, I guess I proved myself right by getting locked up before I could really make anything happen like I wanted to. And that was the thing because you read so much about how such and such sold crack, or they sold a lil heroin or they sold weed and they became a successful artist. Well, it just didnt work out that way for me.
It was kind of hard for me to believe that someone could come from the streets like myself and make it successfully anyway, without getting locked up.
I was around a lot of guys that could have helped me, that didnt help me, but I didnt ask for their help also. And Im talking about when I was hanging around Badboy, and I aint gonna say Murder Inc because Irv Gotti was going through their own problems and they still tried to help me. But a lot of guys like, being from the South, Im right there in Atlanta where So So Def is, I didnt go to them to ask for help, but I aint get no help from them. So I had to do everything on my own.
Its real. Everybody wants to be a part of something thats real. And a person like me, Im down to Earth. Im from the hood to Hollywood. I mess with people from all walks of life. I reach out and touch some people in the best way that I can. And I guess Im kind of a likeable guy. Even with having so many friends from different many states, I always went to those states and lived there and ended up finding a friend or two that I liked and I wanted to see them do good too. So that was my mission, to really just try to help as many people as I can to do good. It didnt make no different of color; if you was Black, white, Chinese, Hispanic I messed with all kinds of people. And that was my mission to bring something real to the industry where I felt there was a lot of fake-ism.
Weve been called all kinds of things that just happened to be the one, from Big Meech Family to Big Meech Flenory. Some white folks see it and think it stands for Black Mutherfuckers, all kind of shit, but Black Mafia Family just kind of stuck. And were living in a day in time where mystique sells. Just to be mysterious, that was our pitch. You got Cash Money, they were like the Cash Money Brothers. Like I said, you got Murder Inc, you got 50 Cent, shit BMF.
Because I got guys from all different cities and states together, that was just one way of looking at it. Everybody using like, you got Irv Gotti, using Gottis name and youve got Murder Inc. So I felt like, with us being from different states, to show us being all grouped up, we became the Black Mafia Family and there have been no problems. And it had my initials.
I mean we both had our reasons for why we werent really communicating. But that was just family stuff.
Not only were we not living in the same state, we hadnt even been communicating for the past three years prior to them picking me up.
Yeah, of course. It didnt just happen overnight. They had been trying their hardest to mix me up with drugs and they never could do it. And then all of a sudden, they got my brother on wire-tapped conversations him and his right-hand man and they and put me in it. Like, birds of a feather flock together.
To be honest, because evidently they didnt like what I was doing, or what they thought I was doing. Thats how I look at it. Anytime youre Black and you got a little power, and youre trying to be successful and youve got money, just for some reason then here they come.
Why do I think Im in jail? Why am I here?
So I assure you that after us there will be no other. So, thats my legacy a Living Legend that didnt snitch and didnt get LIFE.
