And they're saying it's because of the Internet

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Lloyd) – III. Telegraph Ave. ("Oakland" by Lloyd) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Because the Internet is the title of this album. Of course, because of the Internet, mistakes are forever.

His girl says it’s “because the Internet”, because what she can read about him on the Internet does not make things easier, as the skeletons of his last relationships are still online.

This could also refer to the fact that people only like Gambino because of the Internet, referring to Gambino’s success, which (as is often the case these days) is largely owed to word-of-mouth over the Internet. A double-edged sword, though: because of the Internet, people have an instant gratification attitude and they just wanna get it in and move on.
