Tell these nice girls they're the reason that I'm an asshole

from Childish Gambino – Kids Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gambino claims that his inability to maintain good relationships with “nice” women in the past have made him jaded and thus prone to treating the “nice” girls in the future like shit because of it

This line is also in conjunction with the last line is a clever reference to the album itself. Gambino says he wishes he could fast forward and tell the girls that they’re the reason he’s an asshole. This relates to literally fast forwarding the album to the last track where Childish tells a story of a girl who hurt him, and therefore in this line he is saying he is an asshole to nice girls because of this experience.
