    Truth is I just really need your finger size
    So I can make sure they make the ring so tight

  • In July 2012, the little-known Chance the Rapper appeared on "They Don't Like Me," a track from Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino's sixth mixtape, Royalty. Gambino would go on to invite Chance to join on his first concert tour of North America as his opening act. Here, Chance praises Donald Glover for kickstarting his career and changing his financial situation.

    All my raps was about suspension
    Then one day Donald took me on tour
    Young, broke Chano ain't broke no more
