DJ Paul’s Half Brother Craig Petties Linked To BMF

(AllHipHop News) A man testifying in the drug dealing trial of Memphis native Craig Petties told jurors yesterday, that the group funneled millions of dollars in cocaine to members of Black Mafia Family.

Craig Petties, who is the half brother of 36 Mafia’s DJ Paul, is currently on trial for dealing tens of millions of dollars of drugs from Mexico, in the United States.

According to testimony yesterday by Georgia native Torrance Hill, thousands of kilos were moved from Mexico to members of BMF, which was headed by Demetrious “Big Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.

Torrance Hill was no small drug dealer.

According to the police, Hill raked in over $9 million a month, while dealing drugs for the Petties organization.

Drug shipments would be sent to Hill in Georgia four or five times a month, starting and 2003.

Shipments were no less than 150 kilograms and were as high as 500 kilograms.

Hill said that one time he received a shipment that was 2500 kilograms, which was worth more than $50 million on the street.

Sometimes the drugs were shipped through FedEx, but most times, Hill would meet 18 wheelers that carried the drugs into Georgia.

The drugs would then be sold to dealers in Georgia, Alabama, Tallahassee Florida, Mississippi and parts of North Carolina.

Craig Petties, allegedly a member of the Gangster Disciples, has been labeled the biggest drug dealer in the history of Memphis.

According to officials, Craig Petties received his drugs directly from Edgar Valdez Villarreal aka La Barbie, the incarcerated leader of the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.

As a drug dealer, Petties lived a lavish lifestyle and amassed wealth and property.

Authorities seized two houses, valued at more than a million dollars, and twenty luxury vehicles.

The testimony is part of an ongoing trial to dismantle the Craig Petties organization.

The information about BMF came during the trial of two hitmen involved with organization, that are accused of multiple murders.

      ” Looking at the hourglass , how long will his power last? Longer than my song , but he already fell.

      He likes to eat hearty , party , like John Gotti & drive a Maserati , but that’s in the ghetto , in jail he’s jello , mellow , yellow fellow , tell no hell hello.

      One court date can turn an outlaw into an inmate , & just state , ship him upstate , by the great lakes & now wait & wait & wait , …till he breaks , that’s all it takes.

      So he fakes to be a man , but he can’t stand , on his own two feet , because now he’s in a new land.
      Rules are different & so is life , when you think with a shank & talk with a knife.”

    Power, what power?  This cat is facing the prospect of spending the rest of his natural life in a cell.  The funny thing about this entire case is every last one of the BMF “leaders, bosses, kings or whatever term you prefer,” are serving extended sentences.  Nonetheless Jake the Jeweler was allowed to post bail and travel internationally while HIS quislings received 20 and 30 year sentences.  Think about it for a minute, the so called bosses had all of their assets seized while the “minion” was allowed to retain ALL of the ill-gotten gains of the very criminal enterprise they were accused of heading.  Does that make any since to you?  First of all he never faced drug allegations despite his intimate involvement and familial ties to international organized crime figures alleged to have engaged in all manners of trickery, deceit and deception up to and including money laundering, weapons trafficking and other offenses.  His plea deal ultimately dismissed the only serious allegation he faced for money laundering charges and allowed him to escape serious jail time by admitting that he falsified records and provided false statements.  You can move product all day but in the end if you find yourself in a situation where the preferred medium of exchange is top ramen, cool aide, cigarettes and smuggled female flicks, you’ve been duped.

      It’s called greed ! Many hustlers who make millions of dollars think it will last forever it’s a rush making that kinda money. If half the dudes got out the game early they would be chillin to this day !

    Get in get out that an OG’s classic.

    If cats use the drug game for whats its meant for,
    Cats wouldnt find themselves in these situation.

    The streets is suppose to be a tempoary means of providing,
    Until you get from point A to point B. I talking about those who are deep.
    Not the street hustler.

    If cats got in, & get out, after making quick money, and did other things,
    Lets niggas would be in jail do life for a substance.

    Its a dice game, the longer you stay in it,
    The higher the chances that eventually, you going to crap out.
    Either by them feds, or by a snitch, or just ya time is up.

    The money he prolly made of one shipments of 50 birds,
    At the price he prolly got them for. ( straight from
    Papi) he should had been good, after one round if flippage.

    Maybe two to be sure……

    You cant catch that CCE charge if your not continious (sp)
    In the drug game.

      Hmm…you don’t sound like you understand the *reality* of how it goes….by the time you get to the point you are getting 50 things, you got people that rely on you….having 50 things ain’t shit without customers, and by the time you have enough to move that kind of weight, people rely on you — people you love and trust. Friends of yours….it makes it hard to say goodbye since you know they might not be left in the same financial situation with someone else.

      I agree with the rest that you said, that it’s a grave or the cell that awaits you eventually. But don’t act like it’s as simple as 1-2-3 to get out once you reach a certain level.
