Rush Limbaugh – “is Mr. Z (Jay Z) dissing Obama…”

JayZ-Swizz-Timbo-Open-Letter
It always amuses me when hip hop gets on the radar of talking heads in the mainstream media, especially when its not negative.  Rush Limbaugh, one of the most listened to talk radio host in America, spoke about  Jay Z and the new song he released that had social media going crazy this morning.

Rush even played clips of Jay Z’s song, which had me buggin’ because his show is on the opposite side of the spectrum when it comes to platforms for listening to hip hop.  For one, it’s a talk show.

The funny part to me, is when Limbaugh goes on to refer to Jay Z as “Mr. Z” and “the husband of Mrs. Carter.”  He also asked the question, while reading “the transcripts” of Jay Z’s lyrics stating, “is Mr. Z dissing Obama or is he dissing the politicians that spoke out against his trip to Cuba?”

Sidenote: I received a tip just days before the media debacle surrounding the Jay Z and Beyonce trip to Cuba about speculations pertaining to why they went there in the first place.

I’m uncertain about the validity of these claims, but my source says things are about to open up with Cuba in regards to U.S. and international business.

Because of that, it is believed that Shawn (Jay Z) Carter was scoping out land in Cuba to possibly build a hotel and casino once certain sanctions and political red tape is lifted.

I’m not sure how that will pan out, but only time will tell.  Which could be another reason it was such a big deal from certain politicians as to how he was able to get clearance to go there, when U.S. citizens are not allowed to travel to Cuba for mere tourism visit, according to Huffington Post.

When was the last time you’ve ever heard of a rapper causing so much talk, even in the White House?


The reaction of those sitting in this White House press conference is priceless as the lady quotes Jay Z’s lyrics to Jay Carney. Hip Hop has hit a new milestone.

What do you think?

Well, back to hip hop.  It was clever of Jay Z to collaborate with two producers that were very instrumental to the success of hits by Jay Z.  In my opinion, Jay Z will be 50 years old releasing hits.  I always wondered what a Swizz and Timbo track would sound like until now.

Here is a transcript of the song: RapGenius.com

Here is the song “Open Letter” produced by Swizz Beats and Timbaland

    This nasty groove and message is not aimed particularly at Obama, but to the unseen powers that he is subordinate to. After all, this policy was put in place 53 years ago. The U.S. uses words like democracy and freedom as a pretense
