Did nothing but shoot for the moon since (Pew)

from Eminem – Rap God Lyrics on Rap Genius


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
