’99 Problems’ Obama Video: Jay-Z’s Track Gets Presidential Twist

“99 Problems,” Jay-Z’s seminal drug-dealer-versus-police-canine anthem, has occupied a bizarre space in American culture. Many a listener has taken the track to mean that Jay-Z, the rapper, has lots of issues to deal with, but is thankful that a woman is not among them. Jay-Z took pains to explain that he was actually referring to a police canine that was on its way to inspect his car for drugs (which were definitely there). A law professor examined the banter between Jay’s character and the officer and determined how accurately it depicted the law (hint: not that accurately).
