99 Problems Lyrics - Jay-Z

Review The Song (167)



If you're havin' girl problems i feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one

[Verse One]
I got the rap patrol on the gat patrol
Foes that wanna make sure my casket's closed
Rap critics they say he's "Money Cash Hoes"
I'm from the hood stupid, what type of facts are those
If you grew up with holes in ya zapatos
You'd be celebrating the minute you was havin' dough
I'm like fuck critics you can kiss my whole asshole
If you don't like my lyrics you can press fast forward
I got beef with radio if i don't play they show
They don't play my hits i don't give a shit SO
Rap mags try and use my black ass
So advertisers can give 'em more cash for ads, fuckers
I don't know what you take me as,
sponsored links
Or understand the intelligence that Jay-Z has
I'm from rags to ritches niggas I ain't dumb
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

[Chorus]
99 problems but the bitch aint one
If you're havin' girl problems i feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

[Verse Two]
The year's '94 and my trunk is raw
In my rear view mirror is the mother fuckin' law
I got two choices y'all pull over the car or (hmmm)
Bounce on the double put the pedal to the floor
Now I ain't tryin' to see no highway chase with Jake.
Plus i got a few dollars i can fight the case
So I...pull over to the side of the road
I heard "Son do you know why I'm stoppin' you for?"
Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hats real low?
Do I look like a mind reader sir, I don't know
Am I under arrest or should I guess some mo'?
"Well you was doin fifty-five in a fifty-fo' "
"Liscense and registration and step out of the car"
"Are you carryin' a weapon on you I know a lot of you are"
I ain't steppin out of shit all my paper's legit
"Well, do you mind if I look round the car a little bit?"
Well my glove compartment is locked so are the trunk in the back
And I know my rights so you gon' need a warrant for that
"Aren't you sharp as a tack, you some type of lawyer or something'?"
"Or somebody important or somethin'?"
Nah, I ain't pass the bar but i know a little bit
Enough that you won't illegally search my shit
"We'll see how smart you are when the K9 come"
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

[Chorus]
99 Problems but a bitch ain't one
if you havin girl problems
i feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one hit me


99 Problems but a bitch ain't one
if you havin girl problems
i feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

[Verse Three]
Now once upon a time not too long ago
A nigga like myself had to strong arm a hoe
This is not a hoe in the sense of havin a pussy
But a pussy havin no God Damn sense, try and push me
I tried to ignore him and talk to the Lord
Pray for him, cause some fools just love to perform
You know the type loud as a motor bike
But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight
The only thing that's gonna happen is I'ma get to clappin
He and his boys gon be yappin to the captain
And there I go trapped in the kit kat again
Back through the system with the riff raff again
Fiends on the floor scratchin again
paparazzi's with they cameras snappin them
D.A. tried to give the nigga shaft again
Half-a-mil for bail cause I'm African
All because this fool was harrasin' them
Tryin to play the boy like hes saccarin
But ain't nothin sweet 'bout how I hold my gun
I got 99 problems being a bitch ain't one.
Hit me

[Chorus X3]

You're crazy for this one Rick
It's you boy

How many times has b.o. had this turd at the White House? Wanna bet the 3 Oaklahoma shi**eads own every jz cd? On the bright side when they all go off to prison hopefully for life they soon bees understanding alls 'bout being a *itch.

dropped by popular culture for a minute - regret it | Reviewer: Art Lover | 4/28/13

That an unwashed cretin would write these lyrics is not surprising. That anyone with even a touch of intelligence would have any interest in them or pay money to hear them is shocking. I am not connected to popular media except the web - no television nor radio - and stopped by to find out what the president was referring to in his address to the white house correspondents' gathering. I'll be returning to the halls of beautiful artistry - and regret I stopped by the slum that popular music has become.

forget satan, god and all that crap. | Reviewer: kayla | 2/20/13

On my view: I see the meaning of 99 problems to have nothing to do with 99 problems. 99 is a code word for the Ace of Spades. It also represents Saint Clare which means Holy Light. It refers to Lucifer, Satan and the Devil. Jay-Z even has the Ace of Spades as his Drink brand. I see it as he is having trouble with the Devil doing wrong against him with all these problems coming up, and all he wants to do is be at peace with him so the problems go away... To even go further: the name Jay-Z original came from a baseball player that had the jersey of number 29. If you take 1 and divide it by 4, then you got 7. In a circle you have 4 sets of 7 to create 28 in a turn. Beyonce released her album 4, and her DVD The elements of 4. The 5th so called element is the 1 or Ace that sits in the center of the Cross. That is also called Magnum Opus (MO). Bone Thugs Rap about the same things like 2pac, Easy E, Biggie, and Big L. They rap coded religion of Christ as Satan, the Devil, and Lucifer as the Creator. You now wonder why Jesus was born in December on the day of Saturniam. Haha. This rap game has people fooled I tell ya. Peace!


For your record- beyonce released an album called 4 because it was released on her b'day!!! which is the 4th! all that god-satan shit got u confused.

master mind | Reviewer: junior | 5/18/12

guys ive desifer this song yu right the first part doesnt have any difficulty to interpret his clearly says tht a (bitch aint one )slang for women but if yu listen to the last part closely he says (being a bitch aint one) he wont let nobody step on him he stands for his rights .respect to jay z my brethas hes a really badman

hope this helps:) | Reviewer: mike | 5/2/12

Yo...when Jay says bitch sometimes he means a woman and at least once means a dog(pt with the K9). He uses the wrd bitch just to confuse us. Read his book he explains all this(whos the dumbass that thought bitch meant gun, wtf...lol...)

A bitch *ain't* one! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/2/12

The 12/13/11 Anonymous reviewer (titled "A bitch *ain't* one!") has it exactly right: yes, the basic message is crystal clear (girl problems aren't among his many others) -- but understand, that's because he's with Beyonce, an incredibly talented and beautiful woman.

It refers to not haveing problems with women not a fucking dog | Reviewer: The guy who knows what hes talking about unlike you shit heads | 3/13/12

You guys are morons it is actualy refering to women because it says "if you are haveing GIRL problems i feel bad for you son but ive got 99 problems and a bitch (woman) aint one" so its not refering to god damn dogs you shit heads its just a fucking song

C'mon guys... Seriously? | Reviewer: Annie | 3/13/12

People seem to have the idea that the song couldn't just as simple as, Jay-Z has a lot of problems even without a 'bitch' (woman). The song is fabulous but it doesn't have this intense message that needs to be decoded. This song is not as deep and as meaningful as you would all like it to be.

The song clearly says, "If you havin' girl problems-" (KEY WORD HERE IS 'GIRL')"I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems but a bitch- (KEY WORD HERE IS 'BITCH') ain't one."

For those of you who are uninformed, bitch is a word regularly used in place of woman. Also, guns? "I've got 99 problems but a gun ain't one"? What?

The true version | Reviewer: Smooth | 1/20/12

This song is too simple bt ppl go too far to understand it, all is tryna say is I'm no one's bitch, I'm not your bitch, I'll stand up for myself and I won't be bullied, so don't let any one bully you, don't let any one fuck you up, know your right and speak up your mind, I might have 99 problems I might be shy, broke, stupid bt I'm not weak and don't try to make me your bitch. so if you like this follow me on twitter @drcforlife

Simple | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/12

All it's about is how he has more problems to deal with without a girl. The whole song isn't about a dog, a that verse is talking about is how the cop profiled him just for being black.

Seriously?? | Reviewer: Doug | 1/11/12

Do you guys seriously think "Bitches" is referring to dogs and guns or are you taking the piss? The song describes 3 of his 99 non-women related problems to show that he has enough shit to deal with without a bitch (WOMAN) making life even more difficult. The chorus is pretty much self-explanatory ("If you're havin' GIRL problems i feel bad for you son,
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one.")

A dog people it's about a dog | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/12/12

The song is about the k9 unit he got pulled over and there was supposed to be a k9 unit comeing but the unit got another call and could come to sniff the car since the cop wanted to get into the trunk hence the lyrics We're he says u need a warrant and hence the a bitch at one he dosnt have a dog proable u people are so ignorant

Really | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/12

I'm a 12 year old girl now this is a song which is simply the main problem is the word bitch IT IS SLANG FOR A GIRL OR WOMAN my gosh is it THAT hard and wtf with the racist and sexist comments
You people do this to irritate the crap out of normal people who just slitly remember a song and want to know the lyrics

idiots | Reviewer: balls hunter | 12/21/11

Fat diamonds is rocks and jakes is cops).... c'mon yall
