Early 2013 must be venting season in the Carter household.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have been slammed recently for their recent trip to Cuba, which depending on how their visit was categorized can be a considered a violation of the law. Instead of releasing a press statement, Hov took to the studio to address that situation as well as his recent launch of Roc Nation's sports management division, which caused people to wonder if his stake in the Brooklyn Nets is a conflict of interest.
Listen to "Open Letter" below, which features production (and signature ad-libs) by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz-- two veterans who are no strangers to creating hits with Jay-Z.
