Jay-Z releases "Open Letter"

Jay-Z and Beyonce visit cuba

Rapper Jay-Z is going all in on two Florida Republicans in defense of his trip to Cuba; where in he and his wife Beyonce vacated; coincidentally, the lawmakers pointed out that the trip was taken around the time of the couples fifth year anniversary.  Now, If your like me your thinking, So What! What's the big deal?

According to abcnews,

The big deal is-U.S. citizens aren't allowed to travel to Cuba for mere tourism, though they can obtain licenses for academic, religious, journalistic or cultural exchange trips. The so-called people-to-people licenses were reinstated under the Obama administration. Beyonce and Jay-Z marked their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana last week.

On the song, Jay-Z talks about his distaste for politicians and repeats the refrain, "Y'all gon' learn today."

Jay-Z raps: "Want to give me jail time and a fine? Fine, let me commit a real crime."
U.S. Treasury officials said Tuesday the couple's trip was licensed as an educational exchange after Cuban-American U.S. Reps Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart expressed concerns about the trip and wanted to know if it was licensed.
