Rick Rubin Says Chris Rock Came Up With Jay Z's "99 Problems"
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.26.2014



In an interview with New York Magazine, producer Rick Rubin revealed that it was Chris Rock who came up with Jay Z's song "99 Problems". He explained that Rock wanted to do a new version of Ice-T's 1993 song of the same name.

He said: "[Chris] said, 'Ice-T has this song, and maybe there's a way to flip it around and do a new version of that.' And I told Jay Z the idea and he liked it. The Ice-T song is about 'got 99 problems and a bitch ain't one,' and then it's a list of him talking about his girls and what a great pimp he is. And our idea was to use that same hook concept, and instead of it being about the girls that are not his problem, instead of being a bragging song, it's more about the problems. Like, this is about the other side of that story."
