Watch: Jack White’s Nod to Jay Z

Jack White performed a tease/cover of Jay Z's "99 Problems."

Jack White’s got 99 problems and performing live ain’t one.

In a recent stop at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival, Jack White began a song that sounded familiar to fans – the classic White Strips’ tune “Icky Thump” was being performed. The crowds cheered and clapped their hands to the beat. Then, as a segue out of the tune, Jack White busted out Jay Z’s “99 Problems” chorus.

While it’s not much of a cover, the lyrics go well with the bass heavy rock anthem “Icky Thump”. It begins at around 2:55 in the clip down below.
