In the blink of a eye, his whole life changed
Kanye is speaking about how the blink of an eye, his whole life changed after his car crashed and he almost died. He is also talking about how people should be cautious because your whole life can unprecedentedly change.
He also meant literally in the “blink” of an eye. As in when the accident happened he blacked out and woke up in the hospital.
