Florida Republican Congressman Loves Jay-Z, Reviews Magna Carta Holy Grail Via Twitter

On his recent hit "Open Letter," Jay-Z raps: "Politicians never did shit for me, except lie to me, distort history."

He can't ever say that again, unless he tacks on a line about "and review my new album Magna Carta Holy Grail via Twitter at 40,000 feet on the way to D.C."

Yep, Florida Republican congressman Trey Radel, representing Fort Myers, Naples, and Cape Coral, is apparently a huge Jay-Z fan. So he published a track-by-track review of the hype-worthy record while aboard a plane bound for the Capitol.
