VIDEO: Jack White mashes up Jay Z’s ’99 Problems’ and ‘Icky Thump’.
On his recent performance on Saturday 19 July, at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival, Jack White thrilled fans to a his cover of rapper Jay Z‘s “99 Problems”.
Even as previous reports stated that Jay Z has not allowed his collaboration with White to see the light of day, the rock and roll singer is clearly not holding a grudge.
During the set, Jack White mashed up Jay Z’s ’99 problems’ into The White Stripes song ‘Icky Thump’. The cover was very well worked together as the fans received it very well with cheers.
Watch video below:
This was the first song of the encore. Jack killed it all night and played a 30 minute encore, going over his set time and breaking curfew by about 25 minutes. He even teases Jay-Z’s 99 Problems during this song.
This is not the first time Jack White has covered famous songs, the singer previously covered “Enter Sandman” at Glastonbury and Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” in Dublin.
