Lucky Luciano is what they call me,
Lucky Luciano was a famous Italian-American mobster and is considered to be the father of modern organized crime in the USA.
This reference continues the ongoing references to Italy and Italian culture in this verse. The reference also validifies Jay’s claim that he’s “got it” because Lucky Luciano definitely had it made when he was at the top of his game. He had the money, respect, power, and the girls…what more could a man ask for?
Jay’s nickname from his days in the Commission (See Biggie & Junior Mafia) was ‘Lucky Lefty’. ‘Lucky Lefty’ was also the nickname for Lucky Luciano, hence the name drop here.
