Every step you take, they remind you you ghetto

from Jay Z (Ft. Chris Martin) – Most Kingz Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay explained this line in an interview:

“‘Every step you take, they remind you you ghetto’ — so no matter how far you are, you still have that stigma on you of where you come from when you walk inside the door. Even if you have a tuxedo on, it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s the guy who used to be this and did that’”

This is also a setup for the lines which follow regarding Bobby Brown, who had a hit song called “Every Little Step”
