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.

Jay-Z should of been in "Dick Ridin' Obama" with Thugnificent and Will.i.am. Beyonce and Hova are riding it harder than any one else.

First off, the original story never said Obama "rapped" with anyone. Second, why is the WH even commenting? Sure makes them sound like there is something behind this story.

Most rappers seem fake and desperate to feel more important than they are. I guess this JayZ is no exception. Posers are just lame and only fool the fools.

Pretty sad our country is defined like this. Does the WH have any respect anymore. No I do not think so. :(

I really dont believe Obama hangs out or even associates with those two. Im sure they got permission from a government personnel to travel to Cuba, not a personal okay from the president. I think it went to Beyonce and Jay-Z's head when Beyonce was asked to sing at the inauguration. Now they think they can name drop the president in songs.

This White House continues to become a bigger and bigger embarrasment every day. Anybody seen the new unemployment numbers? no improvement. Anybody notice that 35 % more people are on Welfare and Food Stamps have doubled to 46% since he took office. Oh well, lets just blame Bush so we dont have to admit we were fooled and voted in a junior senator with no experience.

They need to distance themselves from those two instead of idolizing them.
