NEW YORK (AP) - Jay-Z has defended his trip to Cuba the best way he knows how: in a song.

In "Open Letter," he raps about lawmakers criticizing his trip last week with Beyonce' by saying, "Want to give me jail time and a fine? Fine, let me commit a real crime."

Americans may not travel to Cuba just for tourism.

U.S. Treasury officials have said the trip was licensed as an educational exchange.

Jay-Z also raps about the Brooklyn Nets, saying he would have brought them to Brooklyn for free but he made millions instead. He also calls himself "the Bob Dylan of rap music."
