'BMF' Episode 7 Review: Eminem cameo disappoints, Snoop Dogg shines as funny pastor
Spoilers for 'BMF' Episode 7 'All in the Family'
Another Sunday night brought us the seventh episode of 'BMF' with it packing plenty of action. The Starz show had a slow start but has nicely picked up with the recent episodes.
Episode 6 saw Lamar (Eric Kofi-Abrefa) kill a child in cold blood after he failed to kidnap the Flenory brothers' little sister Nicole (Laila D Pruitt). The roles of hunter and prey keep reversing with the innocent having to suffer the consequences. Read on to know what happened in Episode 7 and what we thought of it.
'Black Mafia Family' Episode 5: Terry calls Meech flashy, fans find scene hilarious
Have Snoop Dogg and Eminem ended their beef? Duo likely to collaborate on a song
The seventh episode of 'Black Mafia Family' sees Meech (Demetrius Flenory Jr) reiterate the importance of family as he and Terry (Da'Vinchi) rush to the hospital to check on their little sister Nicole after she survives the kidnapping attempt. Now for a family-loving man, he sure puts them in a lot of danger. His selfish thoughts about the business' future after his sister almost got taken, say otherwise.
In a surprising but quite frankly disappointing cameo, Eminem stars as White Boy Rick for a few seconds just to shake Meech's hand. Now the rapper's appearance which was being hyped up ever since it was announced fell very flat and was almost pointless. If these few seconds were it, then why even bother as fans even failed to catch the short appearance properly. Lamar's character continues to be the best and worst thing about the show as his brutality and unhinged behavior keep us at the edge of the seat, yet wishing he was killed (he truly gives us goosebumps).
Tiny (Christian Robinson) who allies with Meech leaves Lamar injured in a shootout, with the psychopath absconding. Kato may see serious consequences as she inadvertently kills Detective Lopez (Sean Michael Gloria) when he tries to arrest the 50 Boyz. Her cover as Lamar's spy is also blown which we absolutely loved to see as it was high time the rat be caught. At Darius' funeral, Snoop Dogg as Pastor Swift gave a brilliant and funny performance as the godly man who talked about gang-banging and execution in a funeral speech. The artist truly is multi-talented and can switch it up when needed.
On the business front, we can expect problems to crop up as Big L (Walnette Marie Santiago) denies Terry's request for an extension while on the family front he's asked to choose between the business and his wife and kid. Things aren't looking great for the 50 Boyz as things get messier by the minute. Lamar's whereabouts remain unknown while Kato's true allegiance remains a shady question mark. Lopez's death will see heavy repercussions as the Ecorse PD won't take the loss of one of their own lightly. The stakes are higher than ever with danger closing in. A solid watch, Episode 7 of 'BMF' promises a good finale.
'BMF' airs new episodes on Sundays at 8 pm EST on Starz.
