 Jay-Z rapped about how his BFF President Obama told him he was worried about being impeached over Jay-Z’s controversial trip to communist Cuba with wife Beyoncé last week.

Jay-Z proved how arrogant and ignorant he is about American politics and communist, apartheid Cuba as he boasted about his trip in his new song “Open Letter.”

Politico reported on some of the lyrics:

I done turned Havana into Atlanta.

[…] Boy from the hood, I got White House clearance…

Politicians never did s—- for me except lie to me, distort history…

They wanna give me jail time and a fine. Fine, let me commit a real crime.

Hear the freedom in my speech… Obama said, ‘Chill you gonna get me impeached. You don’t need this s—- anyway, chill with me on the beach.’”

I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans. This communist talk is so confusing,

The song was released Thursday, one week after Jay-Z and Beyoncé celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary romping through the oppressive and human-rights violating country on a trip fully licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department as an “educational exchange.”

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen are furious that the Obama administration approved the trip and are now questioning the administration’s compliance with U.S. regulations governing travel to communist Cuba.
