Got my face to the ceiling

from Jay Z – "Grammy Family" Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s looking up towards the ceiling in the sense that he’s begging for the Lord to forgive him as he says in the next line.

He could also be referring to the “glass ceiling” that holds blacks back from success in America — as a billion-dollar black rapper who used to sell drugs, he’s about to shatter it.
