La Familia, Roc Nation

from Kanye West (Ft. DJ Khaled) – Cold Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Members of Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s subdivision of Sony Music, commonly refer to the division of the label as a ‘family’, and occasionally ‘familia,’ or variations of it, meaning ‘family’ in Spanish, Italian, and Latin, and commonly used as a term to refer to the mafia or other organised crime.

Roc La Familia is also the name of Jay-Z’s fifth album. However, it was a Roc-A-Fella group effort, as ¾ of the tracks featured other artists. It was also the album on which Kanye kicked open a door into the Roc, by producing the song This Can’t Be Life.
