Turning Cuba to Atlanta? Chilling on the beach with President Barack Obama? The world under new management? Sounds like Jay-Z had a lot to say in his new track produced by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz “Open Letter.”

Jay Z and Beyonce celebrated their 5th anniversary in Cuba last week. At first I thought nothing of it. But apparently Americans simply can’t book a flight and a hotel and head to Cuba. You’ll need to travel with a Cuba travel organization that has official license from the U.S. Department. It doesn’t look like the celebrity couple was on a tour from the photos I’ve seen.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart sent a letter to Adam Szubin, director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control at the Treasury Department, on Friday asking for more information about the type of license that Beyonce and Jay Z received, for what reason, and who approved it.
U.S. law prohibits the licensing of financial transactions for “tourist activities” in Cuba (Section 910(b)(1) of the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act). So basically Americans can’t spend money there.
Jay Z and Beyonce are not above Federal Law! If I can’t go to Cuba, They can’t go to Cuba. I’m glad those members of Congress are investigating their trip. I hope they have their proper licenses, or they could be facing fed time.

R.Kelly & Jay-Z on their “Best Of Both World’s” album said “the power of the p-u-*-*-y” but in this case its the power of the B-O-O-T-Y, and out of all places where it becomes hypnotic, outside the Women’s Dressing Room in Walmart.
This actually happened in North Lauderdale, Florida when 18 year old Aaron Morris was arrested after allegedly groping womens buttocks as they were coming out of dressing room. But it gets better when Morris was arrested and asked by the Broward County Sheriffs why he was grabbing and gripping random booty butt cheeks he told the Sheriff ““Her booty looked so good….I just couldn’t resist touching it.”
Now I have person seen some of the faces attached to the booty’s that walk in and out of my local Walmart and I will say that none of them are worth following and waiting until they come out the Walmart and grab some ass I will just talk to them in the frozen food section of Aldi. But i almost guarantee this is the song that was playing in his head…
The Highly Anticipate Single from MayBach Music Group’s Rick Ross “3 Kings” featuring Dr. Dre and Jay Z from the forth coming album ‘God Forgive I Don’t’ dropped today and lets just say this, if this is an indication of the album, this one may definitely be one worth copping.
