DM – Jay-Z blasted back today at critics of his and wife’s Beyoncé’s recent trip to Cuba in a new song. The scathing song, ‘Open Letter’ calls out the politicians who questioned the legality of the fifth anniversary vacation, which was approved by the Treasury Department, when the rapper says, ‘Politicians never did s**t for me, except lie to me, distort history. They wanna give me jail time and a fine. Fine, let me commit a real crime.’ The song also includes lyrics boasting of his friendship with President Obama, adding: ‘Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached.’ You don’t need this s**t anyway, chill with me on the beach.’ He also brags that he’s a ‘boy from the hood but got White House clearance.’ Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, insisted that the White House had nothing to do with approving the trip. ‘I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury,’ he quipped. ‘The president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.’ The trip to Cuba last week was fully licensed by the United States Treasury Department, according to a source familiar with the trip. After the power couple celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana, Republican members of Congress asked for information on what type of license they obtained. The longstanding U.S. trade embargo against Cuba prevents most Americans from traveling to the island without a license granted by the U.S. government. However, President Barack Obama’s administration has eased restrictions on travel to Cuba for academic, religious or cultural programs.
In full disclosure I hate Jay Z. Always have, always will. So naturally I think he can go fuck himself with this new rap song. Facts are he went to Cuba for his anniversary. I don’t care if the embargo is stupid or hypocritical or what. It’s illegal. Nobody else would have been allowed to do that. Who fucking cares that he visited a theater group? Big whoop. This was a vacation plain and simple. An illegal vacation. Obama is 100% lying saying that he had nothing to do with clearing this too. But despite all that I probably wouldn’t have mentioned it if Jay Z wasn’t such an ass with his response. Shut up dude. You are in the wrong. No other American would have been allowed to do this so you shouldn’t have been either. I don’t care how rich you are or how buddy buddy you are with Obama. Now I really do hope they do throw you in jail and Obama gets impeached for it just to spite your ass. Seriously the Iron Sheik needs to break Jay Z’s back. Make him humble.
