The only thing I put before me is do re

from Childish Gambino – Kids Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is a play on western music solfège: do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do. By saying the only thing he puts infront of “me” is “do, re” Gambino is makes the point that he puts himself and his priorities ahead of everyone else’s.
Also he is saying “the only thing I put before myself is my music”.
