This is a reference to Em’s 2002 single “Lose Yourself” from the soundtrack to his semi-autobiographical feature film 8 Mile . “Lose Yourself” is one of the most famous rap songs ever, and the first ever rap song to win an Oscar . “Lose it” means “to go crazy,” but Em might also be referencing one of his most infamous songs, “Just Lose It.”
