Jay-Z - Open Letter

Last week Jay-Z dropped a collaboration with Timbaland and Swizz Beatz entitled "Open Letter", an open response to critics that are questioning his visit to Cuba. Since it dropped there has been a response from Pitbull about the history of Cuba and Common did a remix. Obama responded today saying he "wasn't familiar" with them taking the trip and that the White House was not involved.

The lyrics are average for a legend like Jay but there are some notable lines like "government never did shit for me/except lie to me distort history" or "Obama said "chill you gon get me impeached"/but you don't need this shit anyway, chill wit me on the beach." 

The beat is also another lackluster production from Timbaland and Swizz Beatz and of course Swizz Beatz has to put his stamp on it and add a mediocre chorus. It's good to see Jay-Z vent his frustration but it's a throwaway track at the end of the day.
