Jay-Z and Beyonce are definitely not here for anyone’s criticism. First, Beyonce dropped “Bow Down” and now it’s Jay’s turn to get some frustrations off his chest.

“Politicians never did sh-t for me / except lie to me, distort history,” Hov raps. “They wanna give me jail time and a fine — Fine, let me commit a real crime,” he says, referencing conservative politician’s efforts to investigate his trip to Cuba, which was approved by the U.S. Treasury. “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’ / You don’t need this sh-t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”
