Published Jul 21, 2014Jack White may have had his songs rejected by the artist, but that hasn't stopped him from fostering a love for rap great Jay Z. The bromance was in full effect over the weekend, when White performed a half-cover of The Black Album's "99 Problems."
While performing in Louisville, KY, on July 19, White performed the White Stripes' "Icky Thump" as an encore song. Nearly three minutes in, however, the lyrics of the track changed to those of "99 Problems." The group still retain the music from "Icky Thump" rather than Rick Rubin's iconic beat, and sadly no one yells out, "You crazy for this one, Rick!"
Regardless, watch the semi-cover below. It kicks off around the 2:55 mark.
