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.”

Maybe they were real close once upon a time... but, after this track, I doubt Obama is going to even dignify Carter's existence.

Your poll at the end of the story should have been:

Is Jay-Z an idiot?
Yes
No

I would have voted yes.

They did it to prove that even though Beyonce doesn't have so much as a third grade education being friends with the president can get you a long way.

I am amazed at how upset people are over this. The "don't travel to Cuba" law is one of the stupidest laws on our books. We don't have this law for any other country (I can go to North Korea or Iran if I want). It is basically our government throwing a temper tantrum over losing Cuba to the communists 50 years ago. Time to move on. There are a lot worse issues in the world than this.

This is what happens when you have so much money you think you can do whatever you want. Even have the president in your back pocket. Take your rap and shove it!

Don't let the money go to your head Jay-Z. Not everyone is driven by money. Especially when it comes to Black Bag Ops.

What an amazing stroke of luck for those two to happen to have an educational trip to Cuba planned at the same time as their 5 year wedding anniversary. I tell you some people have all the luck

Give me a break. I seriously doubt Obama made a call to Treasury about one silly-assed rapper. This dude is just trying to make headlines... and in the process screw Obama by dragging his name into this.
