Yeah, these niggas wanted Cookie but instead I gave 'em Loch Ness

from Childish Gambino – Hold You Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

They thought he would be like Cookie from Ned’s Declassified: nerdy and someone to pick on. Instead he’s a beast. Also the reference here is that he’s a monster, but not the soft kind like Cookie Monster. He’s scary like the Loch Ness monster.

In the movie Nessie, the Monster of Loch Ness the main character leaves behind Oreos (rimshot!) for Nessie.
