Pitbull energized the room...

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - Jay-Z has fired back about criticism over his trip to Cuba, and now Pitbull is chiming in.

The hip-hop star has released a new song in response to Jay-Z's "Open Letter." Jay-Z's song was written and released in response to critics who were angered over his vacation with wife, Beyonce. The couple was celebrating their fifth anniversary.

Pitbull used on Jay-Z's instrumentals while supplying his own lyrics about the tumultuous relations between the U.S. and the communist island nation.

But he's actually defending the mega couple rapping "…question of the night, would they have messed with Mr. Carter if he was white?" and "…Happy fifth year anniversary, Jay and Bey. Don't worry, it's on me."

Due to the U.S. government's travel embargo with Cuba, Americans are prohibited from visiting the communist country for tourism.

American citizens can apply for licenses to travel provided they show substantial proof they intend to visit for specific reasons, such as for business or education.

Jay-Z and Beyonce were reportedly issued a visa for educational reasons.
