Kind of makes you laugh about these "I got shot nine times" gangsta rapper types and their exaggerated stories...



According to Selwyn Raab, in his authoritative "The Five Families," Persico was one of those who attempted to kill Larry Gallo during the Gallo/Profaci war of 1961-63. In retaliation, Persico was shot from a passing truck (presumably by Gallo). Raab writes, "Bullets grazed his head and several slugs ripped into his left hand and arm....The episode was magnified by his supporters to bolster his reputation for toughness, claiming [emphasis added] that a slug had punctured his jaw, and that he had spat out the bullet."


Ntra la porta tua lu sangu sparsu,
E nun me mporta si ce muoru accisu...
E s'iddu muoru e vaju mparadisu
Si nun ce truovo a ttia, mancu ce trasu.
