Jay-Z Performs ’99 Problems’ at Obama Rally in Columbus, Ohio

Dressed in all black including a hoodie marked with a “B” to represent hometown of Brooklyn, Hov performed a medley of hits including ’99 Problems.’ Swapping out the word “b—-” with “Mitt,” Jay-Z spitted, “If you’re having world problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but Mitt ain’t one.”

Unfortunately, the sound engineer forgot to use a clean edit as the backing track blasted the B-word repeatedly during each chorus. Despite that unfortunate gaffe, Jay performed other anthemic tracks like ‘Run This Town, ‘Encore’ and ‘On to the Next One.’

Afterward, according to AllHipHop, Jay-Z gave a rousing pep talk to attendees before introducing President Obama. “Change is on the way and its not an overnight thing,” he said. “We [going] forward, we don’t want to go back.”
