  • Lyrics
  • Ty explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "It talks about how, 'We've been through this, and we've been through that, but now we're here. We're not looking back, and things will never be the same,'" he explained. "That's straight up what the title is. I've had bitches. I've done this. I've done that. Even though everything is getting bigger, I'm never going to have the ego. At the same time, I'm never going to go back to the bulls--t we've been through."
  • The song features Los Angeles rapper Jay Rock, who is a member of the Hip-Hop supergroup Black Hippy, alongside his label-mates Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul.
