I give a fuck about the niggas that you say you ate

from Childish Gambino – Heartbeat Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

CG doesn’t care and yet he does (the crux of this song is feeling simultaneous contradictory impulses about a lover). A lot of people couldn’t care less about who their ex is sleeping with (whose dicks she’s sucking), but Gambino actually does care.

Also, “ate” here could be heard as ‘ate—a contracted form of “hate.” He’s saying he knows that she’s telling him lies by claiming to dislike guys she actually does like when she’s around him, and he doesn’t have the time of day for this tedious pantomime.
