Jay-Z rarely moves to address his haters, so it was surprising to some that he’d release “Open Letter,” his new rap about the controversy surrounding a recent anniversary trip to Cuba with Beyonce. But, that song’s lyrics might also contain a potential bombshell: Did President Barack Obama pull the strings for the trip?

In the song, TMZ reports that Jay-Z raps:

Obama said chill ‘You gonna get me impeached’ … We don’t need this s**t anyway chill with me on the beach.'”

Why the impeachment concern? As many know, the Carters and the Obamas are close. But, should that really be a cause for concern? Or was the president more deeply involved in the Cuba trip than previously reported?

Congressional Republicans called for an investigation into the trip earlier this week, which was approved by the U.S. Treasury Department.
