Default Did you know about this song? (Jay Z stole 99 problems)



Ive never read anywhere (reviews of black album, general shit around 99 problems etc) that Jay Z's 99 problems was a cover track. I never heard Jay mention that anywhere in anything. Not only is the hook identicle, the beat is too (in style).


Another example of Jigguh aka the swagga jacker stealing shit but NOT paying homage in style.

I like Jay Z and think hes an all time great rapper, but hes sly too.


"I came to the fork in the road and went straight" - some of you know what im talking about.

How the fuck does that line justify him doing this sort of shit?

Ice T's original >> Jay Z's version.

The og beat is alot fresher than the slightly annoying and repeatitive Rick Rubin beat

It was common knowledge for most people that I knew. Ice T was asked several times about it.

Brother Marquis wanted money for it, but it wasn't his legal right anymore, due to Ice T having the publishing, blah blah.

yeah, but ya have to give back a bit too.

there's a scene in jay's video for this where he gets pulled over. he shoulda had ice-t play the cop in the vid, and then shout him out at the end of the song.
that woulda been that.

shouting out other shit in hiphop is a way of paying homage.

I dont see how this has ever been a part of hip hop. Not stealing from another rapper. We're not talking about sampling here, were talking about taking the idea out of another rap song.



edit: oh wait, i see RAMA = 2. Jay Z: 1243 plays.

I think most people that are heads knew this w/o having to mention it.....but yeah, generally I think most people thought that Jay was the one behind the concept.....mainly the newbies that wasn't around for when Ice-T was a huge name in hip-hop....
