#GJNEWS: JAY-Z'S 'OPEN LETTER' SPARKS WHITE HOUSE REACTION: "THE PRESIDENT DID NOT COMMUNICATE W/ JAY

Rap mogul Jay-Z's new "Open Letter" record has ruffled the feathers of a few White House officials, prompting a response to one of Young Hov's lyrics.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney provided media a swift answer to speculation of Jay having a chat with President Barack Obama about his controversial Cuba trip last week.

Rapper Jay-Z's latest track is getting poor reviews from the White House. In the song, entitled "Open Letter," Jay-Z brags that he "got White House clearance" for his recent controversial trip to Cuba with wife Beyonce. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney today denied the White House had any involvement with their trip, saying the Treasury Department handles all clearances for travel to Cuba. "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury," Carney joked. In the song, Jay-Z also recounts a conversation he had with President Obama about his trip. "Obama said, 'Chill, you, gonna get me impeached... We don't need this s-t anyway, chill with me on the beach," he raps in the nearly three-minute song.
