Cuban-American rapper Pitbull raps about Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip; Disses 'politicians', defends Jay-Z?


Politically tone-deaf rap mogul Jay-Z and wife Beyonce’s sight-seeing traipse through oppressed Cuba still has Americans exercising their free speech here in the Land of the Free. Cuban-American rapper Pitbull weighed in with his own freestyle rap opus in response to Jay-Z’s “open letter” to critics.

Some saw it as a “smackdown” of Mr. and Mrs. Carter:

Others were confused:

Most were just grateful to Pitbull for underscoring the desire of many Cuban-Americans to see their native land free from Communist rule.

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

As one rap music site put it: “No real heavy lyrical disses, but more of a knowledge drop type track.”




Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted out Pitbull’s rap.


But did he actually listen or read the lyrics?

Rough transcription of passage in question (emphasis added):

Politicians love to hate you

But then they run away when it’s time to debate you

Question of the night, would they have mess with Mr. Carter if he was white?

Hm, rhyme with treasury

One way another in Cuba is where they’ll bury me

Happy 5th year anniversary, Jay and B don’t worry it’s on me


Hm, indeed. So, what does Sen. Rubio think of Pitbull’s race-card play and apparent cover for Jay-Z and Beyonce?


Another knowledge drop: The “rhyme with treasury” lyric is a reference to White House press secretary Jay Carney’s denial that the White House approved of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Cuban vacay.

Full lyrics here.

What do you make of them?


The Pitbull vs. Rubio beef predates Jay and Bey’s trip.
