Pitbull Drops Rap Response to Jay-Z, Beyonce's Cuba Visit, Offers to Pay for Trip

Pitbull_Responds_Jay-Z_Beyonce_Cuba.jpg
Senator Marco Rubio suggested that Jay-Z and Beyoncé have "no interest in Cuban People's freedom." And U.S. Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart said that the pair's recent visit "funds the machinery of oppression."

Pero, their constituent, Miami native, and Cuban-American rapper Pitbull thinks that the Carters' Treasury-approved "educational exchange trip" is the least important diplomatic dialogue about Cuba that the U.S. government should be having.

"Admit it if you want to, truth is the truth, lie if you want to," Pit raps on his latest track, a response to the unnecessary controversy surrounding Jigga's vacation. "Politics, yeah, that's politic."

UPDATE Problem Kids have released "Useful Idiot" about Jay-Z: "The real cuba is not what he portrayed"

UPDATE #2 Obama has commented on Jay-Z and Beyonce in Cuba, saying: ""This is not something the White House was involved with. We've got better things to do."

Written and performed from the perspective of a first-generation Cuban-American, Pit's lyrics reflect a common view shared by several of his contemporaries. And it's one that often causes rifts between friends, even family members.

Reminding everyone to let bygones be bygones and that the Cold War is over, Pit rhymes, "Russian Missile Crisis had America skating on nuclear ice/Bay of Pigs, big bluff/We thought they had our back, but they left us straight stuck/I ain't here to hold a grudge, I love the freedom that has been given to us."

While the American government agrees that Fidel Castro's regime es tremenda mierda and, like many of us, long for a free Cuba, they've done little for the cause; they've held a grudge instead.

And that's what Pit's talking about.

"Don't agree with the change Castro talk, but it's hard to understand unless they educate you/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?/Hmm, rhyme with treasury/One way or other, in Cuba is where they'll bury me/Happy fifth year anniversary, Jay and Bey, don't worry it's on me."

Pitbull loses credibility when his is and avid supporter of Obama. Pitbull has very liberals point of views. I believe it is important that no one gets a free pass specially because you are a famous artist. Either we can all go or no one can. I'm form Cuban descent and have an opposite point of view. I believe people is great at producing hits but has no knowledge as far as politics.

To some of you it's difficult to understand, but many of these cuban americans were raised by their parents as cubans.

They love Cuba, even if they've never stepped a foot on that land.

I'm confused. He didn't really say much in the whole song until the end. Was dancing around the topic. Then again, he's got nothing to say in most of his songs.

Marco Rubio has never stepped a foot in Cuba and only knows what has been spewed by gossip and indoctrination. He shouldn't speak until he really knows first hand of what he speaks. Rubio is a complete jackass.

LOL Marco Rubio was a Joke. And Pitbull is right., that the Carters' Treasury-approved "educational exchange trip" is the least important diplomatic dialogue about Cuba that the U.S. government should be having. "Admit it if you want to, truth is the truth, lie if you want to," Pit raps on his latest track, a response to the unnecessary controversy surrounding the Jigga's vacation. "Politics, yeah, that's politic."

Pitbull doesn't have any knowledge and is lucky he's eating off the corny dance music he has to make because his rap skills are null & void

It's all about the cash, this guy has to sell it to his followers, the great majority of which are not part of the "exilio histórico", but the more recent arrivals who grew up under Castro.

@Oscar Gonzalez Funny how people so concerned with freedom for cubans in cuba would prohibit American citizens from speaking freely, and travelling freely

@Oscar Gonzalez I believe in freedom of speech and of expression, I support Pit Bull's boldness although I don't agree with his politics, but sometimes Liberals need a rude wake up call to realize that they are sleeping with the enemy...
