I know what it is like to walk in big brothers footsteps. West is talking about jay helping him. The evolution of rap is great. My big brother is one of my hero's!

This song is basically about his admiration for Jay-z and he's just letting him know in this song.
If you admire someone, let them know now, while they still can.
