I'm known to gas a hottie and blast the shottie
Kinda familiar, here it refers to him being known for shooting a shotgun.
Great wordplay here.
I’m known to “Gas” a “hottie”
Usually gas ignites a fire so L is implying he “gas"es a hottie which means he gets a hot woman to feel a sense of pleasure and excitement.
Also “gassing” something is hyping it up. So with the double meaning he can also be saying he’s gassing up the hot women he’s got with.
