"i never prayed to god, i prayed to gotti" meaning?
 

 
Myself and a few friends got into a debate about the line "i never prayed to god, i prayed to gotti" from jay-z's d'evils. I always thought he meant he worshipped gangsters and was making a direct reference to john gotti, but my friend seems to think it was a reference to smoking a "gotti" like meaning he's putting one in the air. I highly doubt thats what he meant. Anyone have their own opinion on this?

your friend is a dummy, he was talkin bout Irv Gotti but also obviously people could take it as John Gotti, both make sense and thats the beauty of Jay-Z's lyrics. You are right, your friend is a fool.

It's John Gotti. Not Irv Gotti, not gaudy, not something that is meant to be smoked, just John Gotti.

I took it as Gotti, gaudy could fit knowing the way he uses double and triple entendres... off topic but worth noting, the fact that, that song is 14 years old and still being debated and the fact Jay is still relevant in Rap is amazing... How many musicians period have been around that long and are still considered heavy weights.... Not many

How do you pray to an adjective? Thats like saying, "I pray to s3xy"...phonetically, it doesn't make any sense.
Its GOTTI, as in John Gotti.

A 'gotti' is when you empty a cigar out and fill it with buds...but you don't crack the cigar open, you usually use tweezers to pick out the tabacco. The end result is what looks to be a normal cigar...but its filled with greens of course:agreement2: And BTW I'm from NY so maybe its an eastcoast thing?
