It's supposed to mean something like "this thing of ours", but I believe Rae said it wrong, I think it is "La Costa Nostra"

...It's also what a lot of the Italian Crime families call what they are and what they do..."this thing of ours". Something for them to remember their roots...

When one thinks of Cosa Nostra, or better known as the Mafia, it strikes fear in knowing that a ruthless criminal enterprise existed and still thrives today. The Mafia is something that Hollywood movie producers and Americans alike canít simply seem to get enough of.


The name Cosa Nostra, translated as "Our Thing," goes back hundreds of years and was founded in Sicily to offer protection to the common people of that country from police, bandits and even government agencies. Cosa Nostra, not surprisingly were treated as folk heroes, saviors of the people. The practice of keeping your mouth shut was the code and if you violated it, the wrath was swift and deadly not only to the culprit, but to his own family as well.

This served as the power base for the American Mafia which was organized, depending on who you ask, during the 1920s by several leaders, most notably Giuseppe "Joe the Boss" Masseria and up and coming mobster, Salvatore Maranzano. These old style gangsters were known as "Mustache Petes" for their traditional and conservative ways of doing business. To them, rapid change and too much ambition were out of the question. In other words, they wanted their members to be complacent while they reaped the fruits of others' dastardly deeds.

Salvatore Maranzano arrived in the United States in 1927. He came here not as your ordinary Italian immigrant, but was sent by the Sicilian "Boss of Bosses" Vito Cascio Ferro. Don Vito had a vision of organizing all the American crime families, including non-Italians groups, under one leadership. Once on American soil, Maranzanoís authority was recognized by Gaetano Reina of Brooklyn and his capos, Thomas Luchese and Gaetana Gagliano, by Joey Aiello, the boss of Chicago, and by Joe Zerilli, underboss of the Detroit family. These men entered the United States illegally and were identified by Italian police records as members of the Sicilian Mafia.

Other Sicilian Mafia members to arrive in this manner were Carlo Gambino, Joe Bonanno, Stefano Maggadino and Joe Profaci. Collectively, these mobsters were known as the Twenties Group. When these men hit the American coast, they took shelter in an organization called Unione Siciliana which found them housing, jobs when they wanted them, and identities to cover up their illegal activities. Unione Siciliana also afforded these men the opportunity to learn English and the American way of life. This organization has received a bad rap by history because it helped mobsters and was considered "Mafia owned." This however was not true. Unione Siciliana also helped thousands of law abiding Italian immigrants in adjusting to American life. Including the family of Salvatore Lucania. Better known as Lucky Luciano.

09-27-2005, 09:30 PM
Actually I didn't wrote paragraphs, I just copy something about la cosa nostra on http://www.crimelibrary.com



But now, let us decide... Would Raekwon refer to a drug route or would he refer to the Wu being a crew that is views as a savior for "their" people cause they protect "them" from police, gang and etc?


I guess you will go for the drug?

it could have two meanings but sense he says it on wu-gambinos he's repping the clan first, the drug connotation comes second

The right way to say it is "Cosa Nostra"... This comes from a long time ago, feudal lords gave some families in Italy lands and such, there was a document on that time designed by "Cosa Nostra" where it explained who where the families and wich where the lands that belong to them... With the time passing, many families mixed up together and some lands became property of only one person, that was the beggining of the Mafia, with one person ruling various lands he worked like a feudal lord in the new times... The document still exists and because of that lands pass from generation through generation, giving the family who owns it the same rights that the other families had centuries ago... La Cosa Nostra, Our thing, or in other words Our lands, Our Rules...

Peace God I aint know about Creates answer but he could be correct but the meaning is the Italian one that refers to the mafia. And i think since its in the Gambino's song you know the crime family. I think that is the meaning God. PEACE

LMAO...obviously there aint too many Italians on this board...
Rae is an idiot for pronouncing it 'costra nostra'....
And it is most definitely NOT a referenence to a drug route...were did that come from?
The one dude hit it on the head.
I don't mind the mob references, but its just so fake, because none of them are connected like that. Maybe they sold drugs for so and so who worked for so and so...whatever.
Its funny when you sit back and listen to it tho. I enjoy it tho, but coming from a guy like JoJo Pellegrino it would be more authentic, cuz i heard dude is really mobbed up plus he's italian.
Rae talks the most mafiosi shit(steve livoni..italy-ho.LOL) but dude cant even pronounce cosa nostra right???

Costra means "scab" in spanish. So that drug-route in Panama was called "this scab of ours". True or not, that's pretty funny.
