99 Problems by Jay-Z

Welcome to Hip-Hop Week at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. Am I under arrest or should I guess some more? The song of the day for November 12, 2012 is '99 Problems' by Jay-Z. This song was released in 2004 and is featured on The Black Album.

It amazes me to hear how negative some rocks fans are towards hip-hop. "You can't spell 'crap' without 'rap'"! Shut your mouth, fool. Hip-hop is part of the rock and roll family tree, and hip-hop has give us some incredible music. For example, we have '99 Problems' by Jay-Z. This is a great song where the worlds of rock and hip-hop collide to create one killer tune. I must admit, that I was amazed that stations like MTV and BET played the unedited version of this video that contains explicit language and violence. In my opinion, this is one of the best hip-hop tracks of the past decade. Enjoy.
