Open Letter lyrics

[Intro]
Ladies and gentlemen
Goddamnit
Let this sh*t knock

[Verse 1]
I done turned Havana to Atlanta
Guayabera shirts and bandanas
Every time you think they got me I switch the planna
Bulletproof this, radio scanners
Ballin’ ’til they ban us
You gettin’ too much bread, they tryna’ jam you
Boy from the hood but got White House clearance
Sorry y’all, I don’t agree with y’all appearance
Politicians never did sh*t for me
Except lie to me, distort history
Wanna give me jail time and a fine
Fine, let me commit a real crime
I might buy a kilo for Chief Keef
Out of spite, I just might flood these streets
Hear the freedom in my speech
Got an onion from Universal, read it and weep
Would’ve bought the Nets to Brooklyn for free
Except I made millions off it, you f*ckin’ dweeb
I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seat
Y’all buy that bullsh*t, you’d better keep your receipt
Obama said chill, you gonna get me impeached
But you don’t need this sh*t anyway
Chill with me on the beach

[Hook - Swizz Beatz]
Y’all gon’ learn today


[Verse 2]
Ya’ll almost want to start a revolution
You know whenever I’m threatened, I start shooting, bark
Catch a body, head to Houston
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
Idiot wind, the Bob Dylan of rap music
You’re an idiot baby, you should become a student
Oh, you gonna learn today
Where the f*ck have you been
The world’s under new management
The new role model, f*ck this Zoolander sh*t

[Hook]
