It seems The Doors' music might not be so far off from Jay Z's rap lyrics least according to the king of rap himself. Doors drummer and author of "The Doors: Unhinged" John Densmore joined HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps and opened up about Jay Z's letter to him.

Shamelessly calling himself a "curmudgeon" who didn't understand hip-hop at the time, Densmore says, "[Jay Z] wrote me a letter saying, 'Hey, we're fighting the authority just like you guys did back then.'" Jay didn't stop there, sending him a t-shirt as a token of appreciation.

It looks like Jay Z has won Densmore over...he's still got that tee and isn't giving it up any time soon.
