What's on the menu? Crabs in a basket
You make it somewhere and they just grabbin' you back in
The phrase is often expressed as “crabs in a bucket” or “crabs in a barrel” rather than basket but it refers to the crab mentality, which is the sad fact that crabs individually could escape from their containment, but they instead drag down the others who try to escape.
STEEZ uses this to express the struggle of being a rapper.
