He better go capture this moment and hope it don't pass him
Jimmy Smith, Eminem’s character in the semi-autobiography 8 Mile, is seemingly losing grip on what really matters. Therefore he must “seize the moment,” in order to accomplish his dreams, and become a famous rapper
He goes back to the lab and captures the essence of the one moment of losing oneself in the music, that is, of being “in the bubble” and performing perfectly in a rap battle. He does it by writing a song—this song. “Lose Yourself” is Rabbit (Eminem)’s attempt to communicate what seizing that one opportunity is like. That’s what this whole rhapsody (song) is about.
