Did nothing but shoot for the moon since (Pew)

from Eminem – Rap God Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The lunar reference here goes along with the previous lyric about hitting the Earth like an asteroid. Em also says “pew” in the background, a common sound effect for a laser. Lasers are usually seen as futuristic space weapons like in Star Wars, and particularly in video games.

Busta Rhymes, who is mentioned in the next line, has a song calledShoot for the Moon.” This line is also a reference to an older Eminem song, “I’m Not Afraid,” where he says:

I shoot for the moon
But I’m too busy gazing at the stars
