Ari Fleischer and L.Z. Granderson discusses Jay-Z’s new song “Open Letter,” slamming critics of his trip to Cuba.
The fact that he brought up “99 Problems” is just dumb to me. Does he even listen to Jay Z. Shawn C Carter has multiple great lyrics about love, from Bonnie & Clyde to Song Cry. The 2nd speaker made a great point. Hollywood guests were always present or welcomed to the white house, why is it such a big deal that Jay Z uses his present position for a little boost ? WHILE he tries to get kids off of SAGGING pants, with songs like Suit & Tie, why is this not mentioned ?! E-mail me if you want real feedback from a regular tax paying citizen.
It was a dumb move on Jay-Z’s part to mention the president at all.
This is stupid on at least 4 different levels.
Lol that White House Rep shut Jay down quick. “I guess he couldn’t find something to rhyme with treasury”. All rappers stretch the truth, Jay is no different.
BOYS FROM THE HOOD NOW CNN ON MY DICK .
So Ya’ll Actually Think The White House Would Tell Ya’ll If Jay Talked To Obama Or Not?….Lol
He isn’t talking about white house clearance for the trip. He’s merely describing his ascent from the hood to being in the white house. Rap isn’t necessarily literal… It goes to show just how uninformed and removed these news types are. Listen to more rap music.
