With every step that I take I use my hood sense
Study my footprints, learn from my mistakes

from Jay Z – Get My Shit Off Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay’s footprints are a metaphor for his past, he studies them to be sure not to make the same mistakes, and being from the hood helps him, Jay Z pretty much runs the world so I’m assuming this is his footprint.
