For days, Jay-Z and Beyonce have been on the receiving end of some pretty bad press for taking an authorized anniversary vacation in Cuba, but now, Jay is coming back swinging.

The rapper penned a diss track, entitled “Open Letter,” in which he calls out politicians for creating much ado about nothing.

“Wanna give me jail time and a fine?” he raps. “Fine, let me commit a real crime/I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef…Out of spite I just might flood these streets.”

“Catch a body head to Houston/I’m in Cuba I love Cubans/This communist talk is so confusing, when it’s from China the very mic that I’m using.”

Not even the president of the United States is spared, which raised some eyebrows considering that Jay-Z’s been a close friend of the Obamas for years.

“Obama said chill, you gonna get me impeached/You don’t need this s–t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”

Killing two birds with one stone, Jay-Z also addressed rumors that he’s selling his stake in the Brooklyn Nets to pursue his sports agency venture.

“I still own the building/ I’m still keeping my seats,” he raps. “Y’all buy that bulls–t, y’all better keep y’all receipts.”

“Would’ve brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free,” he explains. “Except I made millions off you f–king dweebs.”
