No trying to make any statement about not having money, but just reflecting on how “real money” and fame has many times changed artists. I’m not focusing on the money itself, I just use it to represent all of the factors that come attached to success. I’m simply reflecting on whether or not achieving a certain level of success will change me

In case you didn’t catch it, I’m being sarcastic haha

I’m just reflecting on the fact the money can’t buy happiness. I can’t cash fun to my debit card, meaning that fun and good times can’t be bought.

I’d rather hang out with my friends, blowing some “lettuce” and drinking, than to focus on getting money

This line can have two meanins

  1. He’s off the Billboard music charts, meaning he is literally an uncharted act.

  2. He’s still “uncharted”, an underground act from Brazil, far from any Billboards or major Media Attention.

Uncharted is a reference to the fact that he is in Brazil, off the World Map (or chart). Although he is not literally off the world map, he is in an unusual location for someone rapping in English, so people joke around that he is in an Uncharted Location

He’s always been hustling!

If one day he manages to succeed and get money playing around the world, he’ll be pretty defensive about it like Mr Krabs. He’ll get his money and dash back to Brazil. It’s just a joke though, he won’t be greedy with it! If he ever succeeds he plans on donating a large amount of his future gains to charity

You can go ahead and call him “Mr. Never Do It Wrong”, because all of his songs gain a large amount of love and support from his supporters and friends

When Josbi Drops a song, it makes an impact so strong that it’s off the richter scale!

"So I choose my crew with booze and lettuce" (Josbi – Come On) | accepted

This line is simply a continuation to the last one. I’m saying that I’d rather spend a night having fun with my friends, than be out spending all of my family’s hard earned money. I’d rather lay low and enjoy the little things in life, than to go out searching for ways to spend money and acquire nothing but emptiness.

"Had it! Can't cash fun to my debit" (Josbi – Come On) | accepted

I’m not trying to say that all. The simple fact that I admit owning a debit card shows that I am economically confortable. What I’m trying to say in this statement is that although I may have money, that is not necessarily what brings me happiness. I’d much rather spend a night with my friends drinking beers and talking instead of spending money on nights clubs and expensive clothing. I never tried to say or even imply that I’m “ghetto” or “hood”, because I’m not, and that’s clear from the video. All I’m trying to say is that money doesn’t buy happiness.

They = The Industry/Labels/Executives

This entire verse is simply a reflection of my contradicting personality. Although on one side I do want to make the music I like, and discuss the topics I feel are relevant to me, I still want to succeed in the industry. The statement you are referring to is a joke that plays on that one emotion — one side of me wants to stay true, while another is ready to change and adapt to the industries standards. The line said right before this one sets a common ground for which my joke stands on, I don’t quite know if I’ll sell out or not. As for now I won’t, but who knows what will happen in a few years if I manage to develop a buzz. I’m trying to be honest to myself and everyone who listens to me; for that reason I avoid screaming clichés and corny sentences such as “I’ll never change!” because I don’t know if I’ll be able to live up to those words. I’m only seventeen and I have a life ahead of me, I might even stop rapping in a couple of years (although very unlikely)

When I used the word “money” I simply used it as a symbol of everything that comes accompanied by fame. I’m afraid that if I ever become famous I’ll change, not specifically getting money
