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

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It’s the same line that starts all verses.

When he was younger, he used to always be paranoid and worried and anxious about everything, even stupid stuff that took real imagination to even think of being worried about, like Chicken Little, when they thought the sky was falling simply because something hit them in the head. Always blowing things out of proportion.

In addition, Chicken Little was a misfit and an outcast, Em draws more parallels to the character.
