President Obama Jokes About Jay-Z Cuba Controversy At Correspondents' Dinner

President Obama says he's got 99 problems "and now Jay-Z's one."

The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner had a significant number of Hip Hop references, beginning with President Obama's entrance to DJ Khaled's "All I Do is Win."

"How do you like my new entrance music?" asked Obama. "Rush Limbaugh warned you about this. Second term, baby. We're changing things around a little bit."

"Actually, my advisors were a little worried about the new Rap entrance music," admitted Obama in jest. "The are a little more traditional."

The jokes continued to flow, with Obama making light about the controversy behind Jay-Z and Beyonce's trip to Cuba. "Somethings are beyond my control. For example, this controversy about Jay-Z going to Cuba. It's unbelievable. I've got ninety-nine problems, and now Jay-Z's one!"

"That's another Rap reference," added the President.

Several weeks ago, the President distanced himself from the trip, stating that he had no advanced knowledge that Hov and Beyonce would be going to Cuba.
