An allusion is a figure of speech where the author refers to a subject matter such as a person, place, event, or literary work in a passing reference. What is the allusion in the following lyric from Macklemore's "'Wings"? "I was trying to fly without leaving the ground, Cause I wanted to be like Mike, right, Wanted to be him, I wanted to be that guy, I wanted to touch the rim"
Please Help me with this... I'm stumped.
If I am correct, I think that it is 'mike', If that is an option. If not, can you please comment here the options for the answer, so that I can figure it out correctly
