This Is What it Sounds Like When Jack White Covers ’99 Problems’

He covered Kanye last month

In May, Jack White opened up about potential collaboration projects with Kanye West and Jay Z that never quite pulled through. But that hasn’t stopped White from incorporating the artists’ work into his setlists.

During a gig at Louisville’s Forecast Festival this weekend, White covered part of Jay Z’s “99 Problems” when segueing out of The White Stripe’s “Icky Thump.” It begins around the 2:55 mark.

Last month, White covered Kanye’s “Black Skinhead” during a show.
