But too scared to do it so these pills will be the rifle

from Danny Brown – XXX Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He means he’s too scared to shoot himself, so he will get numb and overdose on pills.

Like Hamlet, Danny’s afraid of death, not death itself, but the uncertainty of death so he doesn’t kill himself. Danny reasons that since death is not a viable option of escape he’ll turn to pills as a form of escapism.
