Rapper Pitbull takes Jay-Z’s side on Cuba controversy in new song

PitbullThe rap battle continues as rapper Pitbull backs up fellow rapper Jay-Z for his vacation to Cuba in his new song “Open Letter to Jay-Z.”

After Jay-Z released his rap “Open Letter” last week targeting conservative politicians who criticized his vacation with wife Beyoncé to Cuba, Pitbull is the latest to release his own rap addressing the controversy. Lucky for us, it’s actually a rapper performing the rap this time.

Defending Jay-Z, Pitbull sings,”Politicians love to hate  you, but then they run away when it’s time to debate you.”

“Question of the night, would they have messed with Mr. Carter if he was white?” he continues.

Pitbull even takes on White House press secretary Jay Carney’s challenge that nothing rhymes with treasury. “Hmmm, rhyme with treasury. One way another in Cuba is where they’ll bury me,” he raps.

“Happy 5th year anniversary, Jay and B,” he congratulates Beyoncé and Jay-Z who traveled to Cuba on their fifth anniversary. “Don’t worry it’s on me.”

When the rapper isn’t defending Jay-Z in his rap, he’s giving a strange history lesson describing the relations between Cuba and America starting with the 1961 Pig invasion.

“It’s the freedom that we rap for,” Pitbull sings. “It’s the freedom that we die for. C-U-B-A, hope to see you free one day.”
