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.”

The President will not be brought down by his lack of leadership or lack the respect by world leaders, but his need to be a celebrity. Great job Obama on turning the US presidency into a joke!!!

Ppl are so stupid. I really can't understand why this is a big deal. You are an idiot if you take everything that a rapper says literally whether you think he is good or bad. Cuba is a flipping country! It is not an "off limits country". The people are not evil because they were under a dictator. You are an idiot if you think that tourists don't go to Cuba from all around the world. Its a frickin beautiful country!! The country is changing. Shut up!!
