Jay-Z raps on the song:
“I done turned Havana to Atlanta…boy from the hood but got White House clearance.”
“Obama said chill you gonna get me impeached / you don’t need this sh*t anyway / chill with me on the beach”
“You know whenever I’m threatened I start shootin’ /catch a body head to Houston / I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans”
During the daily White House press briefing, a reporter quoted the song and asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney for a response from the White House.
“I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury,” said Carney. “I am absolutely saying that the White House from the president on down had nothing to do with anybody’s personal, anybody’s travel to Cuba. That is something the Treasury handles.”
