Pitbull Defends Jay-Z in His Own ‘Open Letter’ Track
If anyone should have an opinion on Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip to Cuba, it should be Pitbull. While this may sound far-fetched, Mr. 305 is a Miami native, but both of his parents are Cuban immigrants to the South Florida city.
The 'Feel This Moment,' rapper released his own version of Jay-Z's 'Open Letter,' and it isn't so much a defense of whether the couple should have vacationed in the island nation as it is a dialogue about Cuban history and the country's contentious relationship with the U.S.
Here's the freedom we ride for, here's the freedom we die for / C-U-B-A hope to see you free one day," In Cuba hit the lotto that means get your family search for freedom and run.
Pitbull finally speaks up for Beyonce and Jay-Z saying, "Happy 5th year anniversary, Jay and B don't worry it's on me."
Jay-Z, of course, released his song 'Open Letter,' last week to much controversy. The track even merited a response from the President courtesy of the White House Press Secretary. During a press conference, Jay Carney assured the public that Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip was cleared by the Treasury and not the President because Obama's got more important things to worry about than where Jay-Z and Beyonce are vacationing.
The old adage holds true, "Opinions are like bellybuttons... everyone's got one."
