A crash dummy for dollars, I know you dying to meet 'em
Crash test dummies are used to simulate fatal car accidents. This girl is dying to have money so it only makes sense that she’s a “crash dummy” to get to it. .
Kendrick uses the term “crash dummy” as a metaphor to symbolize his younger self, K.Dot and other modern day artists. These artists are just crash dummies driving the “Car of Fame, Vanity and Vices”, riding out their quick ride, crashing and subsequently being replaced. There’s always another crash dummy much like there is music artist. This is evident in another song “Dumb it Down” Kendrick says
Apparently you ain’t nothing but industry crash dummies
