I’m off track
Like Dale Earnhardt,
Kendrick is referring to his rap career. “Off track like Dale Earnhardt” is a simile. Dale Earnhardt died after crashing into the track wall during the 2001 Daytona 500. In Kendrick’s sense, he has stopped making music because he’s lost motivation and fell into the spoils of a semi successful rap career.
