Shots Fired: Jay-Z Slams Politicians Over Cuba Trip In “Open Letter”

Published

on

Jay-Z isn’t known to back down from a fight, so when the members of the press and conservative politicians started hammering him for visiting Cuba last week, they should have known he wasn’t going to take the criticism lightly.

Instead, the hip-hop superstar is firing shots back on a new song titled, “Open Letter”. On the track, the rapper takes aim at his detractors by boasting about his trip to the communist country.

“They wanna give me jail time and a fine — Fine, let me commit a real crime,” Hov raps. “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’ / You don’t need this sh-t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”

Visiting Cuba without authorization from the US government is illegal, but the US Treasury Department has confirmed that Hov and his wife Beyonce traveled to the island on a special license.

The rapper also addressed rumors that he’s selling his share of the Brooklyn Nets to become a sports agent, a story being reported around the Internet.

“I woulda moved the Nets to Brooklyn for free / Except I made millions off you f–king dweebs / I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats / You buy that bullsh-t, you better keep your receipts.”

Hov may be keeping his seats, but under NBA rules, he will not be able to represent NBA players through his newly launched Roc Nation Sports management company while being part owner of the Brooklyn Nets. That being said, yes we are buying that “bullsh*t” although we’re sure the business mogul will find a way to circumvent the system.

“Open Letter” was produced by Swizz Beats and Timbaland. Check it out below.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
