A Brand You Can Trust is the debut album From Hip Hop group La Coka Nostra. It was released on July 14, 2009 on Suburban Noize Records and Uncle Howie Records. The major delay of this album was due to solo records released by Everlast and Ill Bill. The album was originally for a release of September 11, 2007 alongside Ill Bill's The Hour of Reprisal album before it got pushed back as well.

The album took over 3 years to make due to solo projects from Everlast, Slaine, and Ill Bill. in Late 2008 The group with the help of former Non Phixion DJ DJ Eclipse and Cypress Hill Members Sen Dog and DJ Muggs got the group signed with West Coast Punk/Hip Hop Label "Suburban Noize Records". The album was recorded and mixed at DJ Lethal's studio and at the Soul Assassins Studio in Los Angeles, California with additional mixing done in Brooklyn, New York at Ill Bill's in home studio known as "Cult Leader Media".

"Fuck Tony Montana" first Appeared on the Ill Bill Mixtape Ill Bill Is The Future Vol. 2: I'm a Goon! released on December 5, 2006. "That's Coke" was remixed for the album due to sample clearance issues of the original version which used portions from Bobby Byrd's "I'm Not To Blame".
