Yeah, He’s Talkin’ To You, Stacey! Jay-Z Takes On Cuba Critics & More In New Song


Uh oh, who pissed off Jay-Z? Stacey Dash perhaps?

Obviously someone has rubbed Hov the wrong way, because he got amped enough to record an impromptu song at late last night. The track, produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz is titled “Open Letter.”

Addressing his recent controversial anniversary trip to Cuba with Beyonce, Jay was inspired to record the track after seeing it as the lead story on many news sites. He also addresses haters who question his motives behind his new sports management firm and even takes on Obama… a bit.

“Politicians never did sh-t for me / except lie to me, distort history,” Hov raps after boasting that he “done turned Havana into Atlanta.”

“They wanna give me jail time and a fine — Fine, let me commit a real crime,” he says, referencing conservative politician’s efforts to investigate his trip to Cuba. “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’ / You don’t need this sh-t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”
