Jay Z is a man of few words, but when he speaks – people listen. Yesterday, Jay dropped ‘Open Letter,’ addressing rumors about his new sports management company and politicians criticizing the trip he and Beyonce took to Cuba. He even has words for Barack Obama.

On the Timbaland/Swizz Beatz produced track, you hear the phrase “Ya’ll gon’ learn today” – a line made famous by comedian Kevin Hart – as Jay goes in on conservative politicians relentless efforts to investigate his trip to Havana.

They wanna give me jail time and a fine — Fine, let me commit a real crime,

Jay Z does indeed plan to start a new sports agency, dumping his minority share in the Brooklyn Nets to fund the project. As to how the track came together, Swizz Beatz revealed the song actually started in Jay’s office.

I had the portable drum machine with me, then we went down to the 40/40 [club] to watch the game,” he said. “Then [Timbaland] came by and was like, ‘That beat is crazy.’ Next morning, Jay called me with verses.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney addressed the lyrics earlier today after a reported inquired about whether or not the White House gave Jay and Bey clearance to travel to Cuba. Check out their response in the video below, its actually pretty funny.
