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.”

JZ is stupid to disrespect President Obama like this. I
hope he is banned at the White house. As far as an educational trip, Cuba is still treating people badly and a rapper isn't getting educational on his trip.

TMZ, you got Jay-Z's lyrics ALL twisted. Listen to the lyrics again. Jay-Z says:

"Politicians never did s**t for me ... except lie to me, distort history//
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 is that politicians lie all the time. That's obvious and everyone knows this, so he's preaching to the choir here. Due to the U.S.'s relations w/ Cuba Obama told Jay-Z to "chill out" because of the president's relationship with Jay-Z and Beyonce. Nothing more, nothing less. Then Jay-Z says "man, you should be out here on the beach with me anyway." Hinting that US presidency is nothing but stress anyway.

This is just another example of society not understanding rap lyrics. Everything is a metaphor, not literal.
