Came in threes we like the Genovese, is that so
“Genovese is a chain of New York drug stores — well stocked and often selling 3-packs of items”

But RZA’s just fucking with us: in fact, it could also refer to the movie Mobsters about the rise of the Genovese family, featuring Christian Slater as “Lucky” Luciano, Patrick Dempsey as Meyer Lansky, and Richard Greico as Bugsy Siegel
Also, a famous Genovese (= meaning Genoan in italian language, from italian the city of Genoa) was Christopher Columbus , discoverer of the Americas, which came with three ships (in threes) in his first voyage.
He was the quintessential “Genovese” (Genoan) that “came in threes” (with three ships).
Since he’s an OG, RZA refuses to accurately Decode himself
