Pitbull uses the controversy surrounded by Jay-Z‘s trip to Cuba as a reason to talk about his Cuban heritage and offers some verses over Hova’s Timbaland and Swizz Beatz-powered instrumental for “Open Letter.” The topics he touches on include the Bay of Pigs, Operación Pedro Pan and Fidel Castro. Don’t get it twisted though, this isn’t a diss directed at Jay by any means. In the second verse, he even takes Hova’s side on the matter and brings in the race card. Along with the song he sent out this corresponding tweet:
