Original Black Mafia Family member Dexter (Sosa) Hussey did his time for his crime and now he has a story to tell. The 53-year old Hussey, a native of Detroit and four years removed from a prison stint stemming from his involvement in the historic Operation Motor City Mafia case, has released a memoir focusing on the early-days of “BMF.” Co-authored with Kal Williams, Blueprint to Conspiracy – The Untold Story of the Black Mafia Family, dropped as a kindle download on Amazon.com last week.

Brothers Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory and Terry (Southwest T) Flenory founded what became known around the world as BMF in the early 1990s on Motown’s Southwest side in the shadow of the Ambassador Bridge, eventually expanding outside of Michigan and building a transcontinental narcotics-trafficking organization the likes of which, both in scope and cultural impact, had never been witnessed before and hasn’t since. Big Meech relocated to Atlanta. His brother moved out west to Los Angeles. Hussey stayed behind in Detroit and helped head BMF operations at Ground Zero.

According to Hussey’s memoir, the group was first called the Rushtown Crew and then The 50 Boys prior to settling on the BMF moniker. Authorities estimated the organization at its peak in the mid 2000s was roughly 1,000 men strong scattered across 17 different states. The Flenorys and dozens of their lieutenants and associates were brought down in 2005’s crippling Operation Motor City Mafia indictment. Hussey was arrested in 2007 in a superseding indictment.

The iconic Big Meech, 50, and his lesser-known baby brother Southwest T, 47, both pleaded guilty in the case and are doing 30-year prison terms. Rapper and actor 50 Cent is currently putting together a scripted television series about the Flenory brothers’ rise and fall for the cable network Starz as a follow up to his smash hit Power. Oscar nominee and former female rap star Queen Latifah has reportedly been trying to develop a feature film property based on BMF in recent years.

Hussey’s nickname “Sosa” is a nod to the Bolivian cocaine baron character Alejandro Sosa in the 1983 film Scarface. He got out of prison in February 2015 and owns the BMF logo and trademark.
