Jay-Z has a message to all his critics in the form of a new single called ‘Open Letter.’
The track which was produced by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland and also features Trey songz, addresses the recent controversies surrounding him, with Jay even calling himself “the Bob Dylan” of rap music.
Check out some of the lyrics below:
On selling his share of the NETs: He raps, “Would’ve brought the Nets to free. Except, I made millions off you f**king dweeb. I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seats, you buy that bulls**t, you betta keep your receipts.”
On his recent trip to Cuba with wife Beyonce: Jay raps, “Wanna give me jail time and a fine? Fine, let me commit a real crime/I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef…Out of spite I just might flood these streets. Y’all wanna start a revolution/ whenever I’m threatened I start shooting. 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.”
Hov also addresses Obama, rapping, “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’ – You don’t need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach.”
