I break bread
“Break bread” in this usage means that Jay socializes with and learns from the older gangsters. But it also has other connotations.
It could be an allusion to The Last Supper, where Jesus broke bread right before he died. Jay could be contrasting the purity of Jesus breaking bread to the corruption of meeting up with other gangsters and discussing how to make it to the top. Same general idea as the God/Gotti line.
