And I'm sick of pounding a square peg in a round hole, sorry another catchphrase
But your baggage ain't gonna fit in my storage overhead space
Cause it just ain't big enough to fit your damaged goods
To be a square peg in a round hole is to be someone who cannot fit into the roles that a certain society expects.
Eminem is the square peg, and because he’s sick of catchphrases, he’s saying he doesn’t want to change just to meet the normal standards. To pound a square peg to force it into a round hole involves making it smaller so that the peg can fit.
He then reciprocates this by saying that the other rappers' abilities are too small to conform to his level of understanding of hip hop. Their understanding is too damaged, which means that they have lost sight of the fundamentals of rap and hip hop, when they rap about subjects such as women and money.
