Common x Jay-Z - "Open Letter Pt. II" [J. Period Exclusive]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Ever since Jay-Z went to Cuba and then got everybody excited from the White House on down excited with his "Open Letter" track, fools have been dropping piggyback freestyles and penning their own "open letters" to sound off about Cuba. But when Common steps up to the podium, the room goes quiet--our man J. Period just shot us this exclusive track of Com going in on the "dagnabbit!" beat for "Open Letter, Part II" with this data attached:

"Common hit me literally this morning to mix this so his team could release this afternoon..."

We all know Com is nice on a freestyle or a battle verse but he's also one of a very select few MCs who could match Jay toe for toe when it comes to namechecking Presidents and El Patrons. And when Com talks Cuba he ain't talking Marco Rubio, he's talking Assata Shakur. Listen:
