Jay-Z’s “Open Letter”: Listen To The New Song

Don't Mess With The Best
“I done turned Havana to Atlanta,” Jay-Z raps in brand new song “Open Letter,” which was released today (April 11). It’s a ballsy line that has him thumbing his nose at lawmakers who raised a ruckus about Hova’s trip to Cuba last week with his wife, Beyonce, for their anniversary. More incendiary rhymes come later in the song: “Politicians never did shit for me, except lie to me, distort history.”

Well, let’s hope Jay’s pal Barack Obama is too busy balancing the national budget and staving off threats from North Korea to give this one a listen. You, on the other hand, are more than welcome to give “Open Letter” a spin below.

Jay-Z — “Open Letter”

Jay-Z turned up recently on Justin Timberlake‘s comeback smash “Suit & Tie,” and, in 2011, he released Watch The Throne, a pair-up album with Kanye West. But “Open Letter” marks somewhat of a solo return for the New York rapper, whose last LP proper, The Blueprint 3, arrived nearly four years ago.

The song, produced by Swizz Beatz and recent Roc Nation signee Timbaland, comes in at just over two-minutes-and-30-seconds. Still, this short-and-sweet number does what Jay clearly meant for it to do: assert the fact that, while he’s been away for a minute, “the Bob Dylan of rap music” still has the chops to maintain the position of boss.

    Internet es sitios de poca covertura es problema.
    Hola amigos muchos de nosotros vivimos fuera de las ciudades grandes, pero como todo el mundo necesitamo nuestro acceso a internet para poder conectarse con el mundo y otras cosas utiles que hacemos cada dia con esta herramienta sofisticada.
    Hoy en dia los proveidores grandes de internet crean acceso a sus servicios en los pueblos con un precio disparado y la calidad que desea lo mejor. Pero hay una alterntiva y es WIMAX pueden conocer mas acerca del sistema aqui
    Hay pocos distribuidores WIMAX en espaсa y para mi gusto os recomiendo iberbanda. Ofrecen internet rapido y en sitios con poco acceso, los precios son muy economicos y la instalacion es gratuita en mayoria de los casos.
