April 11 (UPI) -- On Thursday, Jay-Z released "Open Letter," addressing rumors about his trip to Cuba with wife Beyonce and Jay-Z's sports management company.

Apparently the couple had a pretty good time in Cuba. “I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans.This Communist talk is so confusing,” he raps, adding "I can turn Havana to Atlanta."

"Politicians never did sh-t for me / except lie to me, distort history," he rapped. "They wanna give me jail time and a fine -- Fine, let me commit a real crime," he says, referencing conservative attempts to investigate his trip to Cuba with wife Beyoncé.

"Obama said, 'Chill you're gonna get me impeached' / You don't need this sh-t anyway, chill with me on the beach." The royal couple of hip hop are friends and supporters of the First Family, and Jay-Z is close enough with Barack Obama to make it believable the president might personally address the situation.

News about Jay's plans to sell his minority share in the Brooklyn Nets and start his own sports management company also appear in the song.

"I woulda moved the Nets to Brooklyn for free
Except I made millions off you f--king dweebs
I still own the building, I'm still keeping my seats
You buy that bullsh-t, you better keep your receipts."
