I watched his life flash before his eyes like a strobe light
I pulled the trigger momma

from J. Cole – Killers Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It is said that before you die your life flashes before your eyes. He watched the life of the man he killed flash before his eyes when he pulled the trigger.

Strobe lights are lights that flash very quickly, making everything appear like it is in slow-motion.
