Jay-Z – Open Letter (prod. Timbaland & Swizz Beatz)

jay-z

Jay-Z addresses his life over the past few months and some political views in Open Letter.

His trip to Cuba may have caused controversy for some (okay, just Stacey Dash) but that hasn’t stopped Jay-Z from making music and this unexpected track found its way onto Soundcloud earlier today. Open Letter, produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz shows Hov talking about that his Havana trip, Chief Keef, his Universal deal and brief talk on politics with the lyrics “politicians never did shit for me/Except lie to me, distort history”. In fact, some of the lyrics triggered a spokesman for the White House to deny the president communicated with Jay.

Obama said “chill, you gonna get me impeached”
But you don’t need this shit anyway
Chill with me on the beach

Apparently, things got serious for the US government for a minute.

Anyway, stream it below.
