Come to grips with the fact that I may be done with rap, I need a new outlet Beautiful by Eminem

Eminem flirted with not returning to rap again after Encore. Yes, the drugs were THAT bad! This would be a huge issue for Em, considering that his raps are his way of coping with his fucked up life. If he can’t just pick up a pen and write about his issues, he could have trouble dealing with them.

I took my bruises, took my lumps, fell down and I got right back up Beautiful by Eminem

Overcoming one’s obstacles is a common theme in hip-hop music nowadays, if not just music in general as a whole.
As a kid was punked, bullied and went through hardships in his family all the time. After losing his best friend “Proof” a.k.a. Deshaun Holton, he was very depressed but he bounced back from it all.

I'm flying on Pegasus, you're flying on the pheasant Dumb it Down by Lupe Fiasco (Ft. Gemini)

As a rapper, Lupe flies on Pegasus, which was a winged horse sired by Poseidon in his role as horse-god (a reference to Greek mythology, which recalls the Sphinx of the previous line)

Other rappers are pheasants — they don’t fly well and prefer to run on the ground; they only burst upwards when startled (and afraid)
