wait what's going on? A debate on a clearly obvious rap line?

Are ya'll mostly youngins who weren't old enough to listen to rap in 96'? The lyric is obviously referring to John Gotti...especially since Jay-Z was on that ny mafioso rap, a time when all rappers referred to and glamorized the italian mob crime boss lifestyle

never liked that Jay-Z line tho cuz it was widely known that Gotti didn't like "zzzzzzs" and thought that black people were inferior and an embarrassment to humanity

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?





your an idiot...why would he be talking about Irv Gotti? :smh2:

a. where do you think irv gotti got his name from

b. rolling a blunt or whatever being called a gotti(which ive never heard before) is the same as a., taken from john gotti.

so why would jayz be talking about either one of those 2. its as simple as rappers imitate the mafia. always have, probably always will.

on a side note, i think its amusing people now believe jayz is part of some global conspiracy to take over the world or something, the illuminati. because he IMITATES them with his record label, the same way every other rapper, including himself, imitated the mafia. because if you believe that then this line at question should prove to you he was or is part of the mafia.

Uhh because they came up together, Irv Gotti was in the "Streets is Watching" video back in the day, shiit like that. John Gotti got locked up by like '92 I believe, 4 years before this album dropped. But whatever, it might have been John Gotti, but like I dsaid both make sense...
