49er chick askin’ for money, she get zero, though

from Childish Gambino – Be Alone Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The term “49er chick” is referring to a gold digger, or a woman after money. Gambino is saying that he won’t fall for a girl like that and she won’t get his money.

The term “49er” comes from Gambino’s song “49ers” on his I AM JUST A RAPPER mixtape. In the song, the reason for Donald’s use of “49er” is partially to reference the San Francisco football team, but is more about the gold rush. The people who went to California in the 1840’s were known as “49ers,” and dug gold during the California Gold Rush. This line is a double meaning about the Gold Rush, using the term “gold digger,” to reference money hungry bitches. The San Francisco 49ers cheerleading squad is also called the Gold Rush.
