    Jay-Z and Beyoncé aka Jayonce visited Cuba last week to celebrate their fifth anniversary and were criticized for doing so since Americans are not permitted to travel there for tourism purposes without seeking permission to do so since the U.S. and Cuba do not have diplomatic relations.

    The couple says it obtained the necessary permission and Jay-Z released "Open Letter," a track which schools the politicos that dissed him and his wife for their actions.

    "Politicians never did shit for me / Except lie to me, distort history," Jay-Z rhyme spits in the Timbaland and Swizz Beatz-produced track.

    "I done turned Havana to Atlanta/ Guayabera shirts and bandannas" and "Boy from the hood got White House clearance" were other choice phrases used in the track.

    Listen to it below, where the Hov says he should get jail time if he commits a REAL crime.

    SCHOOLED!
