I used to be the type of kid that would always think the sky is fallin'

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lots of kids blow things up to bigger than they really are and Eminem freely admits to being one of those kids. After something went wrong, he acted like it was the end of the world and everything would only get worse from there.

This line is repeated in all three verses, and “sky is fallin'” is rhymed through the rest of the verse, meaning the entire song, which is pretty impressive.
