Technically, traveling to Cuba is not illegal, but the United States prohibits our citizens from spending money in Cuba without proper licenses. Visiting without proper permission can result in 10 year prison sentence and $250,000 in fines.

Jay and Bey went to Cuba for their fifth anniversary. Republican politicians took umbrage. A lot of posturing happened. Much ado about nothing. Jay Z dropped a diss track yesterday morning.

It went viral.

Here it is.

It’s not quite Takeover vs Ether level but it’s quite amusing.



I done turned Havana to Atlanta,
White guayabera shirts and bandanas,
Every time you think they got me I switch the plan up,
Bulletproof this, radio scanners,
Ballin’ ’til they ban us,
You gettin’ too much bread, they tryna’ jam you,
Boy from the hood but got White House clearance,
Sorry, Y’all, I don’t agree with y’all appearance,
Politicians never did shit for me,
Except lie to me, distort history,
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,
Hear the freedom in my speech,
Got an onion from Universal, read it and weep,
Could’ve bought the Nets to Brooklyn for free,
Except I made millions off it, you fuckin’ dweeb,
I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seat,
Y’all buy that bullshit, 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,
We almost want to start a revolution,
You know whenever I’m threatened, I start shooting, bark,
Catch a body, head to Houston,
I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans,
This time and this talk is so confusing,
When it’s from China, the very mic that I’m using,
Idiot wind, the Bob Dylan of rap music,
You’re an idiot, Baby, you should become a student,
Oh, you gonna learn today,
Where the fuck have you been,
The world’s under new management,
The new role model, fuck this Zoolander shit.
