Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, bitch I'm drownin'
In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain

    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.

    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.

    It symbolises some fat nigga drowning because the lifeguard can’t swim and has too much money to give a shit.

    Is it only me that thinks of it as a race thing, holding up a mountain like what slaves had to go through. ***** come straight out of hybridge. The light show is the white people

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I'm drownin'= He's so rich that he's drowning in his own money/diamonds. Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, ***** I'm drownin' = All these gold diggers are coming after him/his money. He is also being sarcastic saying "wonder why she like me,". I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain. = He bought something from Cuba (Expensive jewelry i.e., diamond ring or diamond chain) and he has enough money to dispose of it without it being much of a problem. Everywhere that I go it's a light show I'm surrounded= He has paparazzi following him everywhere he goes, and that they are taking pictures of him

    No his brother went to steal from the jewelry store and then he ran to the ocean and tried to get away in the boat but the boat had a hole in it and he was sinking and he couldnt go anywhere else because..."everywhere that I go, I'm surrounded"

    Quick question: when he says he gonna make her panties wet when he flex does he mean flex his money or his muscles?

    In one of the sections of the song I believe I’ve decoded and I relate to it very much. It states that “I’m the shit I’m fartin, I dunno how to party” which could literally mean he has intestinal issues, he likes making jokes about shit (literal feces) or that girls reject him a lot. All of which I relate too

    Take it from Boogie himself folks.
    He says/raps portions of the song and breaks down their meaning for you here.

    It is art though, so feel free to keep what it means to you.

    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.

    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.
