The White House has spoken out about Jay-Z‘s “Open Letter” lyrics where he says “Obama said chill, ‘You gonna get me impeached.’ We don’t need this sh*t anyway. Chill with me on the beach.”

President Obama‘s press secretary Jay Carney addressed reporters this morning and answered a question about Jay-Z‘s new song which he raps about Obama giving him clearance for a recent trip to Cuba he took with Beyonce.

Jay Carney says Jay-Z had zero contact with Barack Obama regarding his Cuba trip which was handled by the Treasury Dept.
