Cause honestly all the times that we had
Those be the best memories
Big Sean is referring to the idea that the past is when everything was going good for him. Everything that happened in the past for him was simple and easy. Now that he is famous, everything is complicated and everyone, from people who he’s known for years that didn’t care about him to new people he just met at parties, are now looking for hand outs because of his notoriety, fame, and wealth. He remembers his past and will never forget that the simplicity of his old life will indeed forever be his best part of his life and will forever remain in his memories.
