Back to my brain like my brain is a home
While I roll with the fame I still aim at the throne
All my peers all sleep and I'm the only one not weak
Or am I unconscious dreaming I'm making a speech
Is this reality or my memory getting mileage
Am I staring at the sun or blood vessels in my eyelids
Do I make music or is music making me
Is this really all death or just my awakening
Among the Sleep by Cage

He’s so messed up on drugs, he can’t tell what’s reality and what isn’t (if he’s “sleeping” or “awake”).

What's on the menu? Crabs in a basket
You make it somewhere and they just grabbin' you back in
Talking Shit by Capital STEEZ (Ft. Joey BADA$$)

The phrase is often expressed as “crabs in a bucket” or “crabs in a barrel” rather than basket but it refers to the crab mentality, which is the sad fact that crabs individually could escape from their containment, but they instead drag down the others who try to escape.

STEEZ uses this to express the struggle of being a rapper.
