Why don't I just blast a little something, like Onyx

from Eminem – Legacy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Why don’t I blast a little something like Onyx:

Onyx is a fictional character in the DC Universe. Eminem might be getting inspired off his comics to confront his problems instead of trying to escape through them.

Or the more obvious reference, Onyx is a hardcore rap group from South Jamaica, Queens, New York.

This is also another throwback/allusion to MMLP as Sticky Fingaz of Onyx was on Em’s track Remember Me.

Eminem is a noted fan of Onyx, whose beat to Last Dayz beat was used in the rap battles featured on 8 Mile.
