Just whisperin behind my back
No vision, lack of ambition, so whack!

from Jay Z (Ft. Pharrell Williams) – So Ambitious Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

They talked behind his back, but he has the ambition and vision that they lacked.

Jay new that his haters were all bark and no bite. No imagination. No Passion. All they did was gossip about him instead of putting in effort, so while they talked Jay elevated himself to his current status.
