Jay-Z’s ‘Open Letter’ Gets Musical Response From Common, Wyclef Jean

Common and Wyclef drop unofficial remix to Jay-Z's fiery track just two days after Pitbull released his own version.

Jay-Z’s rap influence continues to shine. After Hov picked up his figurative pen for the fiery “Open Letter” a number of other spitters have followed suit.

On Monday, after Pitbull added his two cents over the Timbaland and Swizz Beatz-produced thump, Wyclef Jean and Common joined the party. On the J. Period-assisted, Common-helmed “Open Letter PT. II” the G.O.O.D. Music MC reflects on his own trip to Cuba to visit Black Panther icon Assata Shakur, who escaped prison and sought political asylum in the communist country. “I went to Cuba to see her/ We should free her, like we should Mumia,” he raps, referencing inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been fighting to be free following the 1981 murder of a police officer in Philadelphia.
