So, while I've always favored hard rock, punk, & ska over most other flavors of music, I also have a soft spot for older hiphop. While admittedly not the biggest fan of modern rap, like most people, I still listen to a lot of the stuff I listened to in high school. Biggie, 2Pac, De La Soul, Busta, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, The Beastie Boys, & Jay-Z. Of the living guys, pretty much only The Beasties [rip MCA], Mos Def [or whatever the **** he's calling himself now], & Jigga have put out anything I've liked in recent years. Which brings us to this song...
Listen to "Open Letter" Here
This is Jay Z's response to criticism of his recent trip to Cuba his sale of his stake in the Nets [so he can start his new Sports management company]. But the funny thing is, the former was really only an issue because Jay Z & his wife are "friends" with the Obamas. And now, with Open Letter, Republicans are trying to use the lines in the song:
"Obama said "chill, you gonna get me impeached"
But you don't need this shit anyway
Chill with me on the beach
As well as others to "prove" that Obama approved the trip? Which actually went through the Treasury dept.
I guess this & Rand Paul's recent trip to Howard University, where he stressed the Republican roots in African American freedom & voting rights [while not mentioning, oh, the last 60 years or so of Republican history in regards to their views on African Americans] is how they want to court minority voters.
Hillary/Biden are gonna win in a landslide, lol.
