Last week, The Five’s “Day-P” (Dana Perino) rapped about Beyonce’s and Jay Z’s anniversary trip to Cuba. Dana’s rap, simple and campy, revealed an undeniable reality – – minus the coolness factor, Beyonce and Jay Z are selfish, coddled megastars, with zero regard for the plight of the Cuban people. Much like most Progressive leftist celebrities, their political leanings equate to total self-absorption.
It seems that Day-P has inspired others.
Bailey Connell, a future nurse and amateur rapper, has often put her musical skills to fun use – mocking, exposing and refuting the nonsensical exploits of the ill-informed. Her spoof of Justin Beiber’s “If I Were Your Boyfriend” (entitled, “If I Were Your President”) amassed over 80,000 views on YouTube. Recently, she took on the trip to Cuba.
Jay Z put out a song about his trip, which received a lot of attention, including from members of Congress who questioned how they received clearance to visit the country. In the song, called “Open Letter,” Jay Z claims it was the White House which gave the clearance. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied any involvement in the trip, claiming that it is the Treasury Department that provides clearance to visit the Communist nation.
In the song, Jay Z proclaims that he doesn’t understand the issue with Communism, saying, “I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans. This communist talk is so confusing. When it’s from China, the very mic that I’m using.” He also raps about how politicians never did “shit” for him (except, of course, get him to Cuba and invite his wife to lip-sync at the Presidential inauguration,) and “The world’s under new management.” It remains unclear as to who the new management is, or if they’re any good.
Connell wrote her own song, and made her own video. Enjoy, and share.
