I’m dead, right?
Highway to Heaven, God: Do you see my headlights?

from Lil Wayne – Nightmares of the Bottom Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Pre-Prison Wayne might have switched up the reference to make it mirror that of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell.”

But seeing as this is a more introspective Wayne that we’re getting in this song he speaks to God, essentially saying that he’s on his way and to look out for him.

The phrase “I’m dead right” could mean multiple things: it could refer to the fact that you can’t turn on red lights on most intersections with the exception of some “dead” rights. Or it could be Wayne confirming that he’s dead, implying that the red light was from a sniper. OR it could just mean that he’s far from wrong.
