White House

Obama Did NOT Rap

With Jay-Z About Cuba

The Hova Flap is Ovah! ... so says Prez Obama's press secretary.

Jay Carney told White House reporters ... the only reason Jay-Z implicated Obama in his new song is because it's hard to find something that rhymes with treasury.

As you know, in Hova's song, "Open Letter," he raps, "Obama said chill, 'You gonna get me impeached.' We don't need this s*** anyway. Chill with me on the beach."

But Carney claims POTUS had zero contact with Jay-Z about the Cuba trip, and it was all handled by the Treasury Dept.

The best part ... you gotta hear the reporter feebly rap the lyrics. That's why they call it the WHITE House Press Corps.

Please please please let the 15 minute clock start for Jay Z and Beyonce. At least you know that President Obama will be gone in four years but we could be stuck with them for another 10.

Just about the LAST thing Obama needs is being implicated in a rap. It really kind of sounds like those two are personal friends. Obama has some barely there supporters who consider this "friendship" enough to turn the barely there supporters to NON supporters.

Did there really need to be a press statement at the White House about a song some idiot rapper mentioned the president in? Lots of rappers mention Obama. Glad the focus is on such pressing matters.

Everyone should have known that President Obama and Jay Z are not close friends on that type of level where he discusses his plans for vacation with him...SMH...JayZ does what he wants without permission or have to run it by the President!

Obama might not have had direct contact with Jay-Z Knowles, but I'm sure some back door deal was done after Jay-Z and Beyonce supported Obama during the election.
