The superstar couple headed to Havana to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary earlier this month, leading U.S. politicians to question whether the couple was given the appropriate clearance as American tourists. U.S. citizens visiting Cuba need authorization before they can visit the Communist country.
It was later determined the pair was awarded travel permission for academic and cultural purposes and Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, took aim at government leaders and members of the media for criticizing the legality of his trip in a new track, "Open Letter."
Now Pitbull, whose parents were born in Cuba, has recorded a remix of the rap mogul's song, "Open Letter Freestyle," in a bid to silence the backlash and offer the musicians his support.
In one verse, Pitbull raps, "Question of the night, would they have messed with Mr. Carter if he was white?" and in another line he adds, "Politicians love to hate you/but then run away when it's time to debate you."
And referring to the tune as his gift to the couple, he says, "Happy fifth year anniversary, Jay and Bey. Don't worry, it's on me."
I was wondering who was keeping racism alive. =/
I was in Cuba in the 90's at Gitmo. I was in Cuba but, I wasn't allowed in the real Cuba. This is the problem... the average American cant go to Cuba. If the White House made a special pass for this A$$Clown then we need to see the abuse of power that is going on there. Because, the President has the power to allow stuff to happen doesn't mean he should. I know he wants to be loved by stars and be viewed as a cool dude by Snoop Dog and friends... but, this is just making him look like a horses a$$--by abusing the power given to him by the people to make the right decisions.
Their is a reason all this is like it is. Please read a @#$%*@# book for the first time in your life.
Where is Richard Simmons when we need him???? CRAP, HE IS STILL ALIVE!!!!!
