Welcome to Havana
Smoking Cubana’s with Castro in cabanas
Lest you thought this was just a rap fantasy
Hov is smoking expensive Cuban cigars in small houses in Cuba with their country’s most popular political leader, Fidel Castro.
Remember that Jay purchased political asylum in the last verse. Also, Jay’s south-of-the-border excursion may have been prompted by Kanye signing off his last verse with the Spanish word mañana
“Smoking Cubanas” may refer to very attractive women as well as Cuban cigars, another double entendre.
Also notice the fine use of alliteration by Jay with Cubana’s, Castro and Cabanas.
