Jay-Z

Raps About Cuba Trip

"Obama Said ‘You Gonna Get Me Impeached'"

President Barack Obama told Jay-Z he was worried the rapper's controversial trip to Cuba would cost him the White House ... this according to Jay-Z.

Hova just released a new rap, in which he addresses all of the drama surrounding his trip to Cuba last week with his wife Beyonce.

In the song, titled "Open Letter," Jay says ..."Politicians never did s**t for me ... except lie to me, distort history.”

He continues, "Obama said chill ‘You gonna get me impeached' ... We don’t need this s**t anyway chill with me on the beach.'"

The implication based on the lyric -- that Obama did something shady in helping Jay-Z and Beyonce get into Cuba and he could be in political hot water as a result.

It's a pretty believable lyric, considering how close Jay is with B.O.

There's more -- "I can turn Havana to Atlanta ... ballin’ too much they try to jam you."

“I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans.This Communist talk is so confusing.”

This guy continues to be plain and simple. He just does not get it. Crimes have been committed: literally, artistically, and metaphorically! A generation of our youth have been scarred by Jay Z culture. He really needs to FREEZE.

This is just another TMZ non-story. Americans have been subjected to false propaganda about Cuba for decades, for purely political reasons pushed by people who had no problem with the former dictator (why do you think countries have revolutions? The have-nots get tired of not having... Castro had a lot of popular support) and also happily waste our tax money supporting far worse all over the world. All our government has to say is "communists!" and too many Americans run screaming to hide under their beds, even though they can't even define the word properly and have no idea what it means in practical terms, often naming things they don't like about some "communist" government that were already present in the culture long before the economic system shifted.

Citizens of other countries freely travel to Cuba, including for vacations, why do Americans put up with such stupid travel restrictions? Americans have to go through a bunch of bureaucratic hoops to get there and make sure they can claim some purpose to the trip that fits on the form, but that's all. Americans do travel to Cuba, it's just an extra hassle because of our government. Cuba is not a threat to us, it's just a convenient "enemy" for internal propaganda purposes. If you want to strike a blow for real freedom - go visit Cuba and see for yourself instead of blindly listening to the propagandists.

The whole thing is obscene. It trashes the office of the President of the United States. The White House will already need to be fumigated once the current occupants are gone. But all this fraternizing with the lowest segments in our society by the useless moron now masquerading as President makes the entire country the laughing stock of the world. This is worse than disgusting.

The 72% who actually believe Obama was in on this are f**king RET@RDED!

However, I believe it was inapporpriate for the treasury department to grant them premission to go. It was CLEARLY just a vacation/torist trip.

yes, mr. Z, you were lied to. the democrat party fought against civil rights for blacks every step of the way. lyndon johnson, who called black people the 'n-word' was a democrat. george wallace, who blocked the schoolhouse doors to keep you out was a democrat.
abraham lincoln was the first republican president and martin luther king, jr. was a republican. learn some history, mr.Z.
you've been lied to.
