Cosa Nostra was formed in the summer of 2003 in Los Angeles, CA by Hank "Combat" Bronson and Jimmy" Iron Jae" Jump. Like most artist they began their evolution in the Hip-Hop culture as street break-dancers and later as graffiti artist. This taught them the basics of guerilla marketing which landed them a stint on Master P's street team in the late-nineties. Their hard work paid off with the success of P's first major release but that wasn't enough for them. They later interned at an indie label which allowed them to learn the in's and out's of the game. This was what led to the forming of "THEIR OWN THING."
Cosa Nostra has incorporated this same work ethic and respect to their business sense. Get down or lay down is the company motto. Their music along with their street knowledge adds a new meaning to organized rhyme. Following in the steps of many Latinos that came before like Big Pun, Fat Joe, and Cypress Hill; Cosa Nostra is the new legacy of hip hop from the West Coast. Hailing from the gang capital of the world, this is not your typical g-funk, low riding music that you are accustomed to hearing from Los Angeles. Cosa Nostra comes with a sound that will put the City of Angels back on the Hip Hop radar like none other before.
