Barack Obama On The Carters’ Cuba Trip

Our president appeared on Today this morning. When asked about Jay and Bey’s trip to Cuba, he reiterates that the Carter’s followed the proper protocol.

“I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip. My understanding is, I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. This is not something the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.”

Lesson learned. People can’t take lyrics or clever wordplay literally. Sheesh. Besides, this isn’t the first time Hov’s had White House clearance.

    I agree that People shouldn’t take lyrics or clever wordplay literally. I guess Reebok and those protestors (who took off from work) didn’t know that. Tell you one thing for sure Hip-Hop would be banned if everyone took rap lyrics literally.

    ‛‛We’ve got better things to do”
    Case closed.

    We’re in a recession, we have a high rate of unemployment, nuclear threats from North Korea, controversial gun laws, immigration and borderland difficulties and American terrorists killing our own people every other week.

    To all the Jay Stans, i hope u stop taking his rap lyrics as gospel henceforth, you all look like fools when u quote em like gospel. I know you all including @YN, @BDot and @Big homie livevicariously through him so i feel ur pain.

    Obama wasnt aware yet Jay tried fake the funk n spin it like he was when in fact what he did was follow the protocol any citizen wld follow to visit Cuba.

  • Ramel

    People really think they understand Hov but they don’t. Open Letter is really not about music, it’s about his “Jay-Z” branding. End of the day it got the White House talking about why Jay-Z & Beyonce were in Cuba…Goal Accomplished for Jay!

  • NOVA

    Yo……………YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND………….THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES….has to answer questions…..ABOUT FUCKIN JAY-Z………….do ya’ll realize how NEXT LEVEL that is…..!?!

    Ladies and gentleman, if it wasn’t official before……………Jay-Z is the Michael Jordan of rap music………..eternally. This will NEVER happen twice in a lifetime. I promise you.

  • Tbones

    LOL @ the STANOVA up top getting his panties in a bunch cos his god just called a liar by the President. I guess, all publicity including a damning negative one is good publicity for your muppet ass.

    FUCK OBAMA FUCK GAY-Z FUXK AMERICA FUCK JEWS

    HUH??? sit the fuck down dude. Damn. LMAO.

  • Fuck Errbody

    I bet Jay-Z didn’t do a scrap of paperwork. Obama and the whole administration a damn lie.

    That and I love how dudes get on here and talk about how much of a no-brainer it is that these rappers be lyin in the songs…….. yet at the same time be hailing these niggas for being “authentic” and slamming them as “soft” when they turn out to be fake….

    In the words of HOV:
    “Nigga, you ain’t live it
    You witnessed it from your folks’ pad
    You scribbled it in your notepad and created your life”

    corny don’t get a pass!!! never!!!

  • PistolPistol

    Can even believe this shit was addressed by the White House … Who gives two fuks? Jay Z a billionaire he can do whatever really wants . Shit

  • John Blaze

    Somebody Remind @macDiesel That The President Has Addressed The Boston Situation Twice……On Monday. What More Do You People What?

  • John Blaze

    ***Want?

  • Vezzy

    You know how retarded you sound saying Jay Z lied in the song? He said, boy from the hood WITH white house clearance. Meaning, he can and has been to the white house several times, which we all know is true.

    You be the same dudes that believe Drake implied he smashed Rhi when she ‘fell in his lap’, even after he said, ‘I did what a real Nigga would do. I TREATED HER WITH RESPECT.’ if that doesn’t scream out ‘I didn’t f*ck her’ I dunno what will. And newsflash a Real Nigga would simply lay the pipe, call it disrespectful..

    At the end of it all Jay Z is powerful enough to have the white house talking. The new Bob Dylan.

    “Open Letter” Jay Z says u gettin too much bread they gonna jam ya, as in hood niggas and or the media with their hate, Ross lost $3-5 mill for freedom of speech and speaking hypothetically. The premise of “Open letter” is “Freedom of Speech.”#therealness He didn’t say he had white house clearance for the trip. the reporter took a lyrics from one part of song and meshed it with lyrics from another part of song.He said he’s a boy from the hood with white house clearance, meaning everything he does is legal because he’s friends with president. then he bashes the govt in next lyric saying politician did nothin 4 him except lie n distort history. he wasn’t talking about Obama?. So how did they put white house clearance with chill u gone get me impeached? he says he’s not doing anything illegal n they tryna get him locked. so then he speaks of committing a hypothetical crime n buying a hypothetical kilo from Chief Keef n flooding streets. more word play with onion being given to him by universal records.he says hear the freedom of my speech, meaning he’s saying what he wants hypothetical or not which is an ode to Rick Ross’ rebook situation. The issue with Cuba is about Freedom and we are loosing our freedom of speech here as in Ross vs white women n Reebok He continues to talk reckless in a hypothetical way merging it with his true feeling. n speaks of his hypothetical crimes in his freedom of speech hypothetically causing the president to say chill ur words r gonna get me impeached.as Ross’ words n pressure from media caused reebok to drop him.then he compares the hypocrisy of them complaining bout him going to Cuba to the fact that we have economic problems with China n the fact that the very mic he’s on is from China, who is crippling our economy with bootlegs, mirroring our products and selling them at a much cheaper rate etc. n i’m surprised the president didn’t listen to the song and make a better comment by saying, Jay Z didnt say that, You r mixing up his lyrics.
