In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain

    He's drowning in all the fame and he just doesn't want to take it anymore, like he's tired of it "chain so heavy I feel like I'm holding up a mountain" and these fake hoes will like you when they notice the ice on your wrists

    Bruh, y'all are clueless asffff
    If you've watched the music video it shows him stealing a bunch of diamonds and shit and when he's being chased he jumps into the ocean with the diamonds and he drowns because the weight of the jewelry is holding him down.He's drowned by the thing he wanted most.
    Okay, now give me my money.

    A cuban ring is a gold link ring that looks like a chain. If you dip it in a fountain' it is covered in diamonds

    When he talks about being surrounded by a light show, I think he means the cops.

    The light show surrounding him is camera flashes from people surrounding him, as if drowning in fame

    Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, bitch I'm drownin' ( Diamond watches keep bitches around, he's drownin - in water - water=jewlry)
    In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain (a cuban diamond ring, added to the collection)
    Every where that I go it's a light show, I'm surrounded (lights from diamonds reflecting)
    Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I'm drownin'(suggesting he keeps buying jewlery)

    Diamonds and such are refered to as water, or in most cases, "ice". So therefore when he says he's drowning, he means that he is "drowning" in all his "water/ice".

    1."wrist so icy wonder why she like me B**** I'm drowning" = He has so many diamonds on his wrist (Rich) that these gold diggers are coming after him, thats why in the line he was being sarcastic by "Wonder why she like me" And he feels like he is drowning in fame.
    2."Everywhere that I go its a light show i"m surrounded" = He is always getting in trouble with his fake friends that the police are always after them. Thats what it means by "Light Show"
    3."Chain so heavy i feel like i'm holding up a mountain" = He has these expectations that its like they are weighing him down and drowning him.

    I think all those other interpretations are correct. I also think the whole song may be a bit of a double entendre."water" is also slang for Wet (PCP& embalming fluid). "I'm drowning" a PCP trip may,at times, become overwhelming or all consuming (PCP is a disassociative anesthetic)
    "I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain" Wet is usually enjoyed by smoking cigarettes or cigars dipped in it.
    "Everywhere that I go it's a light show I'm surrounded." Drug induced colorful hallucinations.
    Am I the only person who thinks this? Anyway, it's just a thought.

    He means he's drowning in the things he's always longed for , and now he has it is so overwhelming it's almost as if he's drowning.

    Everywhere that I go it's a light show I'm surrounded...all I think of is the boys. Cops. Red and blues. Idk, maybe wrong

    He's talking about being surrounded by friends because he's drowning in money,fame and diamonds. In the song he says: "...Wonder why she like me, b**ch I'm drowning, in water...." The "Water" he talks about in the song is a popular reference to diamonds, in a sense he's speaking about the money that he has which draws fake friends and women.

    He is trying to say the government is surrounding him because he said every where that I go it's a light show. I'm surrounded.
