This is Jay, dissing Jay will get you maced
When I start spitting them lyrics niggas get very religious
Six Hail Mary's please Father forgive us

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z & J. Ivy) – Never Let Me Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A nice subliminal. “Ma$e” was a highly successful rapper who left the rap game to pursue a career as a pastor. Jay claims that when he gets involved in beefs rappers pray to God that he won’t end their careers

Jay isn’t kidding about the mace part either! After R.Kelly started acting like a bitch on their joint tour following the Best of Both Worlds album, Jay’s friend and cousin Ty-Ty maced R and his crew

Ma$e also had his jaw broken by Ghostface Killah and there’s the literal meaning of sprayed by mace.
