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.”

It's dumb for him to put that in a song because most of white America and some black American. Whatever bad happens here including school shootings they blame President Obama and its pure racism but I hope you all know that in order for him to win white people had to vote from him too! I guess you forgot how President Bush handled Hurricane Katrina but I guess that doesn't matter since most of the people where black but there was alot of white, asain, etc hurt by this too.

You stay stay there then. Are you two so dumb that you can't see the poverty all around you? If you lived in Cuba you wouldn't have your money either. and if your buddy Obama has his way, he's going to take your money too. That's the part I want to see!

Z and B along with O are the embodiment of everything wrong with America. Z-Boy and his music trash dumbs down anyone who listens to that crap aqnd O's policies are destrying small businesses and the middle class. All 3 of them should move permanently to Cuba

I think it's hillarious they went to Cuba. Just shows how truly ignorant they are. And anyone is kidding themselves you think Obama wasn't involved - why do you think he's "rapping" about it defending it? maybe if Obama spent more time catering to the real problems in America, instead of sending celebs to Cuba - this country might get somewhere. This is ignorance at it's finest.

Our government is running the online conversation desperate to divert everyone's attention from the truth leaking out about Obama, the illegal war, the Coup, the media blackouts, and this last mock election. The illegal war started in 2008 when Sarah Palin was added to the McCain ticket with the intention of LOSING. Don't take my word for it. See the proof and decide for yourself. Search Sarah Palin's dirty little secret for the BIGGEST ever.

I've heard of Beyonce - a chanteuse? As for the other guy, who? I guess it's a right of passage for left wing celebrities to align themselves with the Cuba against evil Amerika.
