On Sunday (April 14) Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) adressed Jay-Z‘s “Open Letter” while making the political talk show rounds. Miami rapper Pitbull bit into the senator with an open letter of his own.

Pitbull released his “Open Letter,” in which he also takes aim at politicians and weighs in on the debate over Jay-Z and Beyoncé‘s trip to Cuba.

“Politicians love to hate you,” he rapped. “But then they run away when it’s time to debate you/ Question of the night/ would they have mess with Mr. Carter if he was white?/ Hmmm, rhyme with treasury/ One way another in Cuba is where they’ll bury me/ Happy 5th year anniversary, Jay and B/ don’t worry it’s on me.”

In the latest round of “Open Letter” debate, Rubio, who is of Cuban descent, said Jay needs to learn more about Cuba’s repressive policies and the Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, whom Jay has name-dropped on “Public Service Announcement (Interlude)” from 2003’s Black Album (“I’m like Che Guevara with bling on, I’m complex”).
