Without saying a word, the ghetto's got a mental telepathy

from Jay Z – Allure Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The ghetto and the ghetto life that he used to lead as a dope dealer speaks to him and crosses his mind everyday. It’s not physically speaking to him with words, so it’s almost like telepathic communication.

His introduction to the dope game also wasn’t strictly outlined, it was just assumed that Jay would take after his brother. As he mentions on “Sweet”

If I would have grew up to be a doctor
My nephews would have grew up to do the same
