Back from his recent trip to Havana, rapper Jay-Z quickly released a new song, Open Letter, in which he not only addresses controversy about the trip but speaks his mind in a way that is likely to stir up some of the deep passions Americans have toward Cuba and the communist island's tumultuous relationship with the United States.
According to Politico, the song even illicted a response from the White House today.
Among the lyrics: “Politicians never did s--- for me ... except lie to me, distort history.”
“I’m in Cuba. I love Cubans. This Communist talk is so confusing.”
