In part 1 of our mini-series, Peanut shares what childhood was like and how it sparked his interest in money! Affectionately known as Peanut, or Mr. BMB, Brian Maurice Brown was bred on the same vicious Detroit streets that took the lives of his parents within 28 days of the other. He faced insurmountable odds yet always managed to thrive. Life took a drastic turn when the leader of a $68 million dollar narcotics empire was wrongfully suspected of murder and forced him to go on the run. His survival skills kicked in and served him well during a 5-year stint as a fugitive profiled on America’s Most Wanted. After serving nearly 10 years in the Federal Correctional system, and discovering his life’s purpose, he came out better than ever and has become a respected entertainment mogul on the rise. He is the CEO of BMB Entertainment and prominent indie recording label BMB Records. Even with this success, Brown’s proudest accomplishment is being a loving father to his children, loyal husband to multiple wives, and the protector, provider, and stabilizer of many. His mere existence despite the traumatic and astonishing life he’s lived is unfathomable.
