The title is a reference to mob figure John Gotti’s nickname. He was the leader of New York’s Gambino crime family. The nickname was also borrowed by the 45th president of the United States to refer to himself. Ross, who borrowed his name from California drug runner “Freeway” Ricky Ross, has a habit of reverencing the mafia in his music. He recently showed up on Teyana Taylor’s “Come Back to Me”.
