WATCH: Jack White Covers Jay-Z’s ’99 Problems’ In Louisville

Jack White has 99 problems but an Icky Thump ain’t one. When performing at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival last Saturday night, the modern rock ‘n’ roll legend cleverly mixed the White Stripes‘ single, “Icky Thump,” with Jay Z‘s iconic rap number, “99 Problems.” Using the blues-influenced downbeat from “Icky Thump,” White spits versus from “99 Problems,” making the moment a downright jam.

According to SPIN, White has been getting creative with covers during a majority of his sets this year. The former White Stripe also covered Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” at Glastonbury and Kayne West’s “Black Skinhead” in Dublin. …

LISTEN: Body Count Releases Updated Version of Ice-T’s “99 Problems”

Many people seem to forget (or simply never knew) the chorus of Jay-Z’s massive 2003 hit “99 Problems” was actually lifted from an Ice-T song of the same name that originally appeared on his 1993 solo record Home Invasion.

Now, with Ice-T’s metal band Body Count preparing to release their new album Manslaughter through Sumerian Records on June 10, the band has leaked an updated version of the track. Dubbed “99 Problems BC,” Ice-T begins the song with an a cappella first verse before the band bursts into their take on the heavy rock riff from Jay-Z’s song.

Jay Z and Beyoncé’s Action Movie ‘Run’ is Ridiculous

As if Jay Z and Beyoncé haven’t been in the news enough lately–from the Solange fight to their On The Run tour–the two are now buzzing it up again. To promote their tour, the couple have shared a new star-studded short film titled Run that’s as action-packed and over the top as a short film could be.

Run stars Jay Z as a gangster, Beyoncé as his gun-twirling lover, and a massive supporting cast, including Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, and Kidada Jones. Much like The Black Keys’ “Howlin’ For …

Jay Z Allegedly Disses Drake By Comparing Him To A Lacrosse Team On DJ Khaled’s “They Don’t Love You No More”

Less than a month after Drake made headlines for allegedly dissing Jay Z with the release of “Draft Day,” the man who lived a hard knock life has fired back at Canada’s brightest star with a little help from DJ Khaled.

Last night, a new star-studded single from DJ Khaled titled “They Don’t Love You No More” found its way online after being teased by the chart-topping hit maker earlier in the week. The song features Khaled’s typical wall-of-sound production, with vocal contributions from Meek Mill, Rick Ross, French Montana, and Jay Z. Every …

Quvenzhané Wallis Shines In First ‘Annie’ Trailer

I never wanted to see Annie remade. It’s not because I love the original film so much I feel it could never be topped, or that I have some passion for the Broadway version, but I was just not sure the story and music would work with audiences today. Then Jay Z said he was interested in helping out, and suddenly I thought, “why not?” In the moment I may have become everything we claim to hate here at UTG about the millennial crowd, but after viewing the first trailer for Will Gluck’s upcoming adaptation I am more convinced than …
