Jack White Covers Jay Z’s ’99 Problems’: Watch
By Shannon Carlin
During White’s performance of “Icky Thump” at this weekend’s Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY, he managed to throw in a bit of “99 problems,” turning it into a bluesy call to arms.
White hasn’t been shy about his interest in Jay.
During an interview with Rolling Stone, White talked about working in the studio with HOV on a batch of still unreleased songs, which may stay unreleased since White didn’t seem convinced that Jay even liked them.
Last month, White also covered a bit of Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” while in Ireland. This was the same show where they pulled the plug on him, but he just kept on playing.
