The Black Mafia Family (BMF) was a widespread drug trafficking organisation that was originally established in 1989 within Detroit, started by two men, Demetrius "Big Meech" Flenory & Terry "Southwest T" Flenory. Throughout the early 2000s they made their name within the underground drug trade for being a staple within the cocaine distribution market. With their operations based mainly out of Atlanta and the West Coast, they had direct ties to Mexican cartels who would supply them with a direct pipeline imported into the West Coast, whilst Atlanta remained their distribution capital. They simultaneously made a public name for themselves, getting heavily involved within the music industry. Meech used the music industry as an opportunity to go legal whilst maintaining the drug operation on the side, starting a promotion and record label group named BFM Entertainment to launder money.

 

Their reputation as a drug trafficking organisation remained almost non-existent to the public eye, though they managed to have their 'BMF' name spread like wildfire throughout the music industry. Key figures within the industry would be seen with BMF members, with other legendary artists sporting their merchandise. However, with the public eye heavily on them, small slip-ups would lead to a federal case being blown wide open. The BMF's couriers and small time dealers were getting picked up by law enforcement as they increased their surveillance, with wiretaps contributing majorly to their downfall. Many recordings can be found of BMF members conducting illegal activities.

In 2004-5, the DEA started to land arrests on the BMF group. A major drug raid orchestrated by the DEA proved successful in arresting approximately 30 BMF members, where $3 million in cash, assets, along with kilos of cocaine & various weapons were seized. The following years up until 2009 saw over 150 members of the BMF being indicted over conspiracy, distribution and arms-related charges.

 


 

Among the initial arrests, a key operation occurred that lead to the federal law enforcement's first major step towards taking down BMF included a long-term member, Julius "Viper" Meadows. In the early hours of the morning, 23rd of May 2003, Julius A.K.A. Viper was watching over a BMF stash house in Atlanta where kilos in cocaine were stored along with illegal firearms. An intruder kicked down the door, leading to a confrontation leading to Viper shooting and killing him, who police later identified as a known criminal working on his own, unrelated to the BMF completely. Upon police arrival, they discovered the illegal stash and Viper was one of the first few to get taken down for many years prior to the BMF takedown.

Julius' two nephews, LaVonn "LV" Morrison & Marquis "Qiz" Meadows, were certified BMF members who worked alongside their uncle, yet moved much more quietly in comparison to the lavish high-life of the mainstream, publicised figures such as Big Meech & Southwest T. This allowed them to make a run, fleeing from Atlanta once the indicments throughout 04-09 went down. They laid low in Los Santos up until their uncle coming out of prison recently, reigniting their interests in running a crew (DTO) much similar to the BMF in terms of what was being dealt and the widespread scale on which it was performed, but having to start from the ground up. Their networking skills allowed them gain the trust and interests of many fellow African-Americans, having a variety of individuals on stand-by for work.

 

LaVonn & Marquis' cousin, Jalen "Point" Broussard, took up a spot beside them at the top after playing a pivotal role in the organisation's development & underground links to other organisations. He earned his spot as a Kingpin through articulate planning & strategising, as well as marketing with street leaders and organized crime figures. The fourth & final KingpinReggie "Reg" Kingston, was just another hood figure from the beginning of the organisation's formation. However, his continuous work for the organisation and development as an individual within the DTO saw him propel through the ranks and earn his position with the aforementioned three.

 

With the four closely tied individuals, LaVonn, Marquis, Jalen & Reggie, the Morrison & Meadows DTO (Drug Trafficking Organisation) is a work in progress till this day, mixing elements of both street crime & organized crime.

7th of March, 2021 — Change

 

With LaVonn "LV" Morrison staying low and maintaining the organisation's structure, he had some cocaine remaining from the batch which they imported. The remaining amount belonged to Deondre "Dee" Kennedy, the Enforcer at the time, whose role it was to pass on the product to White City Mafia. However, Dee had been MIA (missing-in-action) for a long time. LaVonn's multiple phone calls reached no where.

 

As LV finally linked up with his cousin Marquis "Qiz" Meadows after his trip to Turkey to secure jewelry for their business, they were discussing Dee's disappearance whilst LV attempted to get in touch with him. Deondre finally called him back and came to the safehouse that LV & Qiz were at. Dee was confronted by LaVonn & Marquis, only for them to find out that he had been getting pressured by law enforcement for a long time, being tailed by them and even being approached by a detective.

 

As tensions rose, Deondre admitted to speaking to the detective and wanting to get away to Paleto where he could stay, and get away from the organisation, the life. At this point LaVonn was armed with a pistol, and ended up taking his life. He riddled him with bullets, Deondre's lifeless body dropping onto the couch behind him. LaVonn ended his childhood friend's legacy with one final bullet to the head, a coup de grace.

12th of March, 2021 — Four Kings

 

Since the start of the DTO, Reggie "Reg" Kingston has been known for his dedication to the business and his work being put in. He witnessed multiple people come and go, changes within the organisation and the lowest points among the highest. After deliberation by both LaVonn "LV" Morrison Marquis "Qiz" Meadows, the decision was made to have him stand at the top with the rest, becoming a Kingpin and solidifying his spot in the organisation.

9th of April, 2021 — Reckless

 

After moving recklessly and acting out of order by brazenly shooting someone over something little, pulling a chase & shooting at police in broad day light, Street Boss Bryce "Dopeboy" Harrington made the call to pull the plug on the former crew runner, Jerome "JC" Clayton. He was taken out by Shots Down Shooters specialist Blake "Biggie" Marks & his girl, Yaelis "Yae" Menendez. Jerome ran The JC Crew, however, after his execution, a new person immediately took his spot, the Street Boss Dopeboy not wasting anytime in keeping the flow of business constant (see post below for more information).

"Well, Terry actually moved from Detroit to LA. He did spend some time in Atlanta, too. He had a property called the White House that he and Meech had shared at a point. But then Terry took it over. There was a drug lab there. And there was a stash house where they'd have like 100 kilos lined up in the basement." [1]

 

"Despite the fact that illegal money was funding his legal business venture, Meech showed no inclination toward toning down his exorbitant showboating. This endless, almost reckless pattern of spending and insanely flashy lifestyle, which continued well past the time Meech became aware that the FBI was investigating him, have all contributed to the legend that is BMF." [2]

 

"With tens of thousands of dollars worth of cocaine sales pouring in every day, Meech could afford to maintain his expensive habits, and fund those of his friends, too. Case in point: Bleu DaVinci’s first major music video "We Still Here" was allegedly bankrolled by BMF Entertainment to the tune of $500,000. The project is opulent even by today’s standards. There are battalions of luxury cars racing down Atlanta’s busiest streets, plenty of half-naked women and club scenes, and lots of cash; it’s a real rapper’s delight." [3]

 

"So prodigious were Meech’s spending habits (in strip clubs in particular) that many claim BMF were the true originators of “making it rain." [4]

(( OOC: The faction aims to portray a realistic drug distribution ring partly consisting of former BMF members, that focuses on the sale of cocaine and other narcotics via drug crews operating around the Forum Drive and Strawberry area, as well as bulk distribution to connected groups. With the real life counterpart formerly using the West Coast as their importing hub from Mexican cartels, we intend on replicating this within Los Santos, focusing heavily on cocaine and its supply.

 

If your character intends to join and is associated to one or more people from the faction, leadership retains the rights to CK your character at their IC discretion at any point in time.

 

We are also welcoming of any unique characters that want to roleplay around the community in which MMDTO's gang, White City Mafia, inhabits (Chamberlain Hills / Forum Drive). By this you can be any civilian character such as a pastor, a doctor, a crackhead, a junkie of any sort, an oldhead, etc. If you have a unique idea that can somehow be incorporated with our faction and its story in-character, by all means approach us.

 

This faction enforces a high standard of roleplay and ensures that server rules are followed. If you're looking for a typical shooter faction, keep looking. Any inquiries or joining or regarding the faction can be sent through to us, feel free to DM us on Discord, ren#1942, StefanM#1911, milos#5178, corey#3333. ))

White City Mafia (WCM) is a result of on-going criminal activity in the Chamberlain Hills Projects just on the corner of Forum Drive. The community there represents locals and involved drug dealers as young as sixteen years of age. With their supply mainly from the Morrison & Meadows Drug Trafficking Organisation, they serve as the running frontline for the DTO's drug supplier at the bottom of the chain, as well as various illegal activities.

 

The name was coined together by Rochelle Clarke, a former dealer within the street section of the DTO former boss of the street gang. She was appointed by the DTO's leadership after careful deliberation alongside SDS hitter & now EnforcerTyrik "Reek" Bennett. White City Mafia is not only a name that would surprise many due to its clear irony, but one that is indicative of the clear intentions and structure of the group behind it. The white represents the aim of the group and indirectly the DTO's, that being to supply cocaine. With intentions of flooding the south with cocaine once establishing a solidified pipeline, the term 'White City' is a vision that has high chances of coming to fruition with how events are taking place within the DTO.

 

The group is ran primarily by one boss, Bryce "Dopeboy" Harrington. In comparison to other African-American sets in the southside, the set takes a more backseat approach in terms of politics and relations with other groups in order to benefit themselves, and in turn, the organization.

 

With the formation of White City Mafia, the DTO takes on a more organized approach towards illicit activities where leadership individuals can step away from the streets and maintain connections through the bosses to focus on sophisticated illegal activities such as large scale narcotics trafficking, fraud schemes & money laundering. Similarly, legal activities are much more possible now, a key example being running nightclubs and business without direct involvement to a street set.

 


 

Forum Drive begins at Strawberry Avenue from the east and ends at intersection with Strawberry Avenue and Davis Avenue in the west, being crossed by Carson Avenue.

 

The west side (below Carson Avenue) mostly consists of housing projects and apartments, while the east side hosts small, single-family homes and small businesses.

 

The Forum Drive Housing Projects is a public housing project located in the Chamberlain Hills neighborhood of Los Santos. It is one of the oldest housing project owned by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Santos.
 

By the early 1990s it was labeled as a "war zone" and was dominated by drug activity and violence.


The Los Santos Times named the area as the "center for drug traffic", remarking "users from as far away as Sandy Shores drive to [Forum Drive] to buy drugs". Crack cocaine was heavily trafficked, but cocaine and marijuana were also common. Customers were often from outside of the projects but came to Forum Drive Housing Projects for the large and open marketplace, called a "24-hour drive-through drug market" by a police officer. Police would often bring their first arrest to the station within 30 minutes of their shift.
 

Crime-plagued blocks alternate and sometimes merge with the safer blocks around the housing project, which lies in the heart of the city's violent south-central region. It is not uncommon to find a bullet-scarred crack house next to a well-kept cottage with neatly trimmed bushes and a white wrought-iron fence.

 

As war rages for control of the streets, many residents in the mostly working-class black and Hispanic neighborhood have retreated behind barred windows and doors.

White City Mafia's turf dominates Forum Drive, and with their increased numbers and control in the drug trade the entire area is now deemed as 'White City' by many southside locals.

Ever since LaVonn's interest in the crack cocaine trade, he has managed to supply the group with something unique to further their trade within the southside. This managed to establish them as a dominant force in the drug trade, being the first group to supply crack cocaine in the south of Los Santos. His desires of creating a modern day crack epidemic are further fuelled by the group's success.

 


 

As White City Mafia progressed continuously, only booming in numbers & productivity within the DTO, the longer standing members seemed to phase out slowly and take a more relaxed role in the organisation after putting in vast amounts of work in. With Blake "Biggie" Marks taking a more relaxed position in the organisation, Bryce "Dopeboy" Harrington was moved up by Marquis "Qiz" Meadows to the Street Boss of White City Mafia. Bryce chose to have Jevonne "Von" Love as his Street Lieutenant, ushering in a new era of members taking up leadership positions within the organisation.

 

White City has sinced surged in criminal activity of all sorts, breeding a new wave of loyal soldiers for the DTO's cause under the 'White City Mafia' banner. A rather notorious Soldier putting in work by the name of Zaquan "Quan" Heard, an individual known for various shootings & block work being put in, a true White City loyalist. His rise through the gang saw him take charge, the Street Boss Bryce "Dopeboy" Harrington assigning him his own crew to lead, establishing the third WCM crew, The Quan Crew.

 

With former crew runner Jerome "JC" Clayton being taken out of the picture and executed, WCM Street Boss Bryce "Dopeboy" Harrington appointed a long-running White City Mafia SoldierYaelis "Yae" Menendez to take over. The crew was respectively named The Yae Crew, ran by Blake "Biggie" Marks' girl.
