And when I wreck it other rappers be like "whiplash!"

from Common – Watermelon Lyrics on Rap Genius


Unscrupulous motorists will often falsely claim “whiplash” injuries when they are in a collision, in order to collect an insurance settlement. Whiplash is chosen because it is the hardest injury to disprove. Com is saying that when he “wrecks” the mic, other emcees will have no recourse but to make small claims on Com’s insurance.

When Tony Starks wrecks it, he’s like “Whiplash!”
