Jay-Z Raps About That Little Trip To Cuba

The rap mogul also brings up his decision to sell his stake in the Brooklyn Nets.

Jay-Z on Thursday released a new track called "Open Letter," in which he addresses his and Beyonce's now-controversial trip to Cuba.

"They wanna give me jail time and a fine -- Fine, let me commit a real crime," the 43-year-old raps, referencing Conservative politician's recent efforts to investigate the trip. "Obama said, 'Chill you're going to get me impeached' / You don't need this sh-t anyway, chill with me on the beach."

Also in the track, Jay-Z mentions his decision to sell his share in the Brooklyn Nets. (He's doing it to become a player agent, for whatever reason, ugh.)

"I woulda moved the Nets to Brooklyn for free," he wraps. 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."

The US Treasury Department confirmed on Tuesday that Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip to Cuba was approved.

"It is our understanding that the travelers in question traveled to Cuba pursuant to an educational exchange trip organized by a group authorized by (the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control) to sponsor and organize programs to promote people-to-people contact in Cuba," Alastair M. Fitzpayne, Treasury’s assistant secretary for legislative affairs, wrote in a letter.

US citizens are not permitted to travel to Cuba as tourists.

You can listen to the full track, above.

Whatever your opinion on it is, at least be thankful that this latest I-am-gonna-sing-about-how-I-hate-the-media track didn't turn out like this, because, well, yeah.
