Rapper/business mogul Jay-Z’s latest track most likely won’t be one President Obama would listen to more than once.

Jay on Thursday released a single “Open Letter,” in which he fires back at critics of a recent trip he and wife took to Cuba to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary.

The lyrics go like this: “I done turned Havana into Atlanta,”. “Boy from the hood, I got White House clearance… Politicians never did s–t for me except lie to me, distort history… They wanna give me jail time and a fine. Fine, let me commit a real crime.”

Three Cuban-American congressional lawmakers had questioned the legality of the trip this week because of a U.S. ban on travel to Cuba.

“Hear the freedom in my speech… Obama said, ‘Chill you gonna get me impeached,” Jay-Z later raps. “You don’t need this s–t anyway, chill with me on the beach.'”

Carney on Thursday reiterated that the president and the rapper have not discussed the trip.
