White House Responds to Jay Z’s “Open Letter”

Just hours after Jay-Z dropped a new tune to address the negative press surrounding he and his wife Beyonce’s recent trip to Cuba, the White House has released their own response to the song.

In the track titled “Open Letter,” the 43-year-old rapped, “boy from the hood but got White House clearance,” adding, “Obama said chill, you gonna get me impeached/You don’t need that s–t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”

After many speculated that Jay was implying President Barack Obama had something to do with his

clearance to travel to Havana, White House press secretary Jay Carney cleared up all possible questions.

During a press conference on Thursday (April 11), Carney said, “I guess nothing rhymes with ‘Treasury,’” he joked. “Because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.”

“I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody’s travel to Cuba. That is something the Treasury handles. OFAC, Treasury, these are solid words to rhyme,” Carney stated.
