Jay-Z's 'Open Letter' - Listen Now!

Check out this first listen of Jay-Z‘s song “Open Letter,” which he responds to some recent controversies surrounding him, including his recent trip to Cuba with wife Beyonce.

“Hear the freedom in my speech/ Got an onion from Universal, read it and weep/ Would’ve bought the Nets to Brooklyn for free/ Except I made millions off it, you f*ckin’ dweeb/ I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seat/ Y’all buy that bullsh*t, you’d better keep your receipt/ Obama said chill, you gonna get me impeached/ But you don’t need this shit anyway/ Chill with me on the beach,” the 43-year-old rapper says in the song. “I done turned Havana to Atlanta/ Guayabera shirts and bandannas. …Boy from the hood got White House clearance.”

Jay-Z recorded the song alongside Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.

WARNING: This song contains NSFW lyrics!

    All I got from it is he and his wife are literally laughing at us all the way to the bank and the president listens to him more than the hard working taxpaying/voters of American’s. Well, it certainly opened my eyes. Money talks.

  • butler

    Jay Z is a genius

  • mariaNY

    He is laughing at us for buying his shit!!! well at y’all cause i don’t spend 1 penny on those two MTFS.. I cant stand that guy

  • sillyme

    Yeah, money does talk. See how this president is canceling White House tours,air shows, things that involve regular citizens. But, he will NOT cancel anything that involves his rich Hollywood friends. He claims to be all about the kids, but only if he can use them for political purposes. Poor kids don’t know that his policies will destroy their future.

  • Fact

    Signed on with the devil and the illuminati for fame and money.
    He’ll live well in this life, but he can expect to come back as a disease carrying cockroach in the next .

  • anch

    Money is a powerfull thing because Jay Z is one ugly motherf@cker. A chimpanzee is better looking .

  • HK

    money / fame will turn nearly everyone into the person they hated when they felt they were a nobody, it goes right to the head, the memory fails, amnesisia, superiority, indulgences, justifications, “stupid nobodys deserve their fate”

  • lots

    Tribal nonsense. I couldn’t understand a word of it.

  • lola_uk

    I seriously CANNOT STAND jayz and his idiot wife!

  • Dani

    Here’s my freedom of speech:
    How about he & his wife donate some of his a$$ money to homeless americans, wounded warrior vets, american schools in low income black area, or else shove it up their brown peach holes.

  • Ela

    @Dani:
    Excuse me but it THEIR money. THEY earned it. Not YOU
    If those issues bother you so much then YOU donate some money to those causes.
    I am tired of all those comments like celebs should donate their money, blah blah blah. If you people are bothered by it, then go out, earn your own money and lets see if you will donate a hefty share of your money.
    BTW, Jay Z and Beyonce have donated a ton of money, more then you or anyone else who crticizes them.

  • an opinion

    He makes me sick just like Donald Trump. Just because you have it does not mean you should hold it over other people and think you can get away with things other people can’t.
    I am really starting to dislike him and his wife—- Now bow down!!!

  • HA!!

    @Rita Jean Marie Signore:

    Correction to your quote: “The LOVE of money is the root to all evil”

    This is the most misquoted scripture in the Bible. It is okay to have money but don’t let the love of money take you away from what is important, and that is GOD! Because when this happens you are allowing money to be your god. Good example: when the market crashed you had rich people killing themselves because they lost what…..MONEY. They served money.

  • marchlily

    he is very difficult to look at….

  • John

    What a pompous azz, and really can’t stand that America voted for Obama twice, when he has friends like Jay Z, and drug dealer turned rapper, and this is the person a Presidenat is friends with, sad commentary on 21 century America along with 5 years as President and 90 million without work, and 17 trillion debt .. And the mess that will be Obamacare.

    Dont hate on us when we become rich and powerful, we deserve it all..

    @Rita Jean Marie Signore: You have no clue what you are talking about. You and most of the rest of these posters are crazy right wingers, that do not have a clue as to what is going on in the real world. Stop listen to Rush Limpdick and spreading your vile hate.

    @Rita Jean Marie Signore:

    I am confused between your racist comments, name calling, and denigrating a fellow woman which is placed in the same post hypocritically claiming Jesus this and that. Would Jesus have called these people out of their names? Is this what you have learned from your religion? I am certain there are many people of the same faith that would disagree with your vitriol.
