Watch The Lead's Jake Tapper rap

Hip hop mogul Jay-Z released a track Thursday going after critics who bashed he and his wife Beyoncé's recent trip to Cuba, suggesting in one line that he got permission from the White House. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about it, and quipped "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury," citing the department responsible for travel licenses to Cuba.

That sounded like a Twitter challenge to us. The Lead's Jake Tapper helped out Jay-Z in our Thursday Twitter challenge (which is now closed, sorry tweeps!), finding a choice treasury rhyme in the video above.
