Put her in the club, all she wanna hear is Waka
Put her in the crib, all she wanna hear is Waka

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble & RZA) – American Royalty Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

To further his suspicions of her secretly going to Hofstra, he takes her to the club where all she wants to do is get crunk and dance to Waka Flocka Flame. The same goes when he takes her home. Yeah, she definitely doesn’t go to Spelman

Possibly a stretch but, the second line can also be a reference to Fozzie Bear, a Muppet whose catchphrase was “Wocka Wocka!”. This is where Waka Flocka’s name is actually derived from. The girl he’s referring to may be quite young so the “putting her in the crib” and Muppet lines may be meant to show she’s also immature as well as a “hood” club chick, (where Waka’s music is a staple).
