Jay-Z told off by the White House for rap/bragging about President Obama!

Looks like rapper Jay-Z has been told off by the White House for rapping about Barack Obama doing him 'personal favours'.
A household you don’t want to get on the wrong side of but it seems Jay-Z has learnt his lesson about bragging about his friends in high places.
We couldn’t think of anyone else to put Jay-Z in his place than the President of the United States!
To hit back, this week he released a song called Open Letter making exaggerated hip-hop boasts which has landed him in hot water with his pal Barack.
His lyrics were, “Boy from the hood but got White House clearance / Obama said, ‘Chill, you gonna get me impeached’ / But you don’t need this s*** anyway/ Chill on the beach.”
President Obama’s spokesman, Jay Carney, reportedly said, “It’s a song. I am absolutely saying that the White House and the President had nothing to do with anybody’s personal travel to Cuba.”
Also earlier this month Jay-Z, aka Shawn Corey Carter, and his wife Beyoncé got into trouble for travelling to Cuba, which is technically forbidden for US citizens.
The 43-year-old has previously campaigned for President Obama, who says he has the rapper’s songs on his iPod.
This was also around the time when the controversy of Beyoncé’s mimed-singing happened at his second inauguration in January.
We would not want to be told off by the White House.
How do you think they told Jay-Z? Letter? Phonecall?
