99 Problems

Music

  1. "99 Problems" is the third single released by American rapper Jay-Z in 2004 from The Black Album. The chorus hook "I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one" is taken from the Ice-T single "99 Problems" from the Album Home Invasion. The hook was coined by Brother Marquis from 2 Live Crew during a conversation with Ice Tea, who then used it in the 1993 song. This hook had also been used in the 1996 2 Live Crew song "Table Dance". In the song, Jay-Z tells a story about dealing with racial profiling from a police officer who wants to search his car, dealing with rap critics, and dealing with an aggressor. The song reached number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100.
