Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s long-time passion project, BMF, is a Starz series that has been in the works for a while. Hip-hop fans are familiar with the notorious Flenory brothers and how they built their career organization into an entertainment company.
Despite their recent start on BMF, they are already facing several major challenges. Is Lamar (Eric Kofi-Abrefa), their main adversary, based on a real person? Is Lamar Based on a Real Person: ‘BMF’.
How accurate is ‘BMF’?
With the Flenory family on board for the series, 50 Cent wanted to make sure that the show was as realistic as possible.

Is Lamar based on a real-life person?
Kofi-Abrefa’s Lamar is one of the more fascinating figures to follow out of everyone on BMF.
An Omar-like character (from The Wire), Lamar was discharged from a mental health institution as the 50 Boyz rose in Detroit, manifesting an undiagnosed mental illness.
The people behind the character are based on real-life individuals. Huggins drew upon a number of Flenorys dwellers throughout history to create a composite figure. “It’s not just a drug show,” Huggins informed TVLine. “We delve into mental illness with Lamar.
Did Lamar shoot Southwest T?
At the conclusion of the pilot, when Terry was shot in the face as he departed his girlfriend’s house, many BMF fans were disturbed.
He was rushed into emergency eye surgery, but because of the deadly encounter, he lost one of his eyesight. Now, fans believe that Lamar is responsible for the shooting.
Lamar and his crew are in a long-standing battle with the Flenorys and the 50 Boyz, as fans are aware.
Lamar is also irritated that Big Meech (Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight) was seeing Monique while he was incarcerated and then in a mental wellness institution.
