From the womb to the tomb, from now until my doom
Drink Army from one cup pass it around the room (That's a family nigga)
That's the ritual

from Jay Z – Never Change Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay-Z and Dame Dash bought Armadale Vodka (the company) in 2002

Note the religious imagery. Passing around one cup of alcohol like the sacrament…

“From the womb the tomb” and “that’s the ritual” are part of a Nas reference, as in “Verbal Intercourse” Nas rapped

From the womb to the tomb, presume the unpredictable
Guns salute life, rapidly, that’s the ritual

Jay biting/referencing Nas here is quite notable since they were famously beefing at the time, and directly taking lines from other rappers was one of the biggest things Nas had against him as well.
