Jay-Z addresses controversial Cuba vacation through rap, of course [AUDIO]
If you piss Jay-Z off, he is going to respond to you via a rap song, because how else would he?
After politicians like Sen. Marco Rubio criticized Jay-Z and Beyonce’s recent vacation to Havana, Cuba and how they obtained visas to travel there, the rapper responded to his haterz by dropping a new song “Open Letter” Thursday.
The song takes aim at politicians for criticizing his vacation to Cuba, and addresses rumors that he plans to sell his share of the Brooklyn Nets in order to become a sports agent.
“Politicians never did shit for me / except lie to me, distort history,” Hov raps and says that he “done turned Havana into Atlanta.”
“They wanna give me jail time and a fine — Fine, let me commit a real crime,” he says, referencing some Congress members’ investigation to his trip to Cuba. “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’ / You don’t need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach.”
Of the Nets sale, he raps, “I woulda moved the Nets to Brooklyn for free/ Except I made millions off you fucking dweebs/ I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats/ You buy that bullshit, you better keep your receipts.”
Jay also refers to himself the “Bob Dylan of rap,” in case you were wondering if he had any confidence issues.
