Jay-Z clearly has “IT”. With the release of his new song “Open Letter” , Jay has some people wondering about his association with President Barack Obama, and The White House.
In a press conference that took place Thursday, White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, had to answer questions about Jay-Z and his controversial trip to Cuba. During the press conference, one reporter quoted the lyrics “Boy from the hood but got White House clearance;Obama said chill you’re going to get me impeached.”
The lyrics quoted by the reporter, proposed the question to Carney on whether administration was involved in Jay and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba. Carney laughed off the question saying, “I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury,” Carney joked. “Because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.”
It was confirmed earlier this week, that Jay-Z and Beyonce’ had permission to travel to the embargo country of the US. The trip was said to be an educational exchange trip.
Since when did Jay-Z have to answer folks about his vacays!? Like Carney said, it is just a song.
