The group's name is derived from the notorious criminal organization (La) Cosa Nostra, which means "This Thing Of Ours", with the Italian word Cosa ( "thing" meaning "business") being replaced by the Spanish word Coka which stands for Cocaine. Slaine has noted the idea for the name was to incorporate some slang with the gangster theme, so the name would mean "This Dope Thing Of Ours", with "dope" being slang for something cool, and not actual drugs
Not actual drugs? Then what is all the fuss about? Why do they rhyme about shooting everyone? I know in "Jump Around" they were coming "to battle with a shotgun" and all but those were different times and gangster rap was hip then so the white boys had something to prove. I don't find it all that necessary or practical anymore. What do y'all think?
PS. The group's debut album "A Brand You Can Trust" (with DVD) is now set to be released in early 2008
