Pitbull "Open Letter" Released: Rapper Responds to Jay-Z, Marco Rubio

by at . Comments

Pitbull has released a response to Jay-Z's "Open Letter", which itself was a response to politicians critical of his recent trip to Cuba with Beyonce.

We know. It's confusing, and his song lyrics make it even more so.

Pitbull, a.k.a. Mr. Worldwide, is a rapper known for everybody-come-together-and-party anthems and not for subtlety or wading into political waters.

His "Open Letter" is certainly ... different.

The song feels like a stream-of-consciousness shout-out to Cubans in Miami, good and bad, touching on everything from Scarface to Elian Gonzalez.

"Elian got snatched back, the whole world seen it," he raps, along with this gem a bit later, "Let's not act like half of our families ain't flipped bricks." 

This may be a reference to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who was a vocal critic of Jay-Z's trip, and whose brother-in-law was part of a drug ring (at age 16).

Unclear, but he definitely takes aim at politicians in general:

"Politicians love to hate you / But then they run away when it’s time to debate you. Question of the night / would they have messed with Mr. Carter if he was white?"

"Hmmm, 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."

Sounds like Pit is on Jay and Bey's side ... whatever that might mean. Not exactly profound stuff, but we guess he thinks politicians should step off?

As for the Obama administration, they denied any role in Jay-Z's travel plans. And as for Rubio, he isn't upset. In fact, he Tweeted a link to the track.


Marco Rubio is drinking plenty of water because he is trying to make a mad dash for the whitehouse before his hair falla off and he has to wear a wig.But Jay-Z and Beyonce should not have set foot in Cuba like Jane Fonda did in Vietnam..

Nothing but aligning one self with the bigger politician/entertainer. He isn't going to step on Jay Z's or Beyonce's toes. Mr. Worldwide might need them more than he needs Rubio. All about setting himself up to get paid! Forget human rights when money is involved
