This Guy Spent Weeks Starting Each Tweet With One Word From Jay Z's "99 Problems"

99 PROBLEMS BUT A TWEET AIN'T ONE!

Posted on

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the release of Jay Z's "99 Problems" earlier this year, Twitter user Jack (@sciencejayz) spent weeks starting each tweet with one word from "99 Problems."

He tweeted the lyrics backwards so that as you scroll down his Twitter reading the first word of each tweet, it will form the lyrics of the song.

Here's the opening line: "If you having girl problems I feel bad for you, son. I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one":

If you go to my profile the 1ST WORD to every tweet (not including handles) from this tweet onward forms the lyrics to Jay-Z’s 99 Problems.

…Problems, so I have finally brought that to you.

I am sure you can guess what song I chose, and I am sure that you always wanted to be able to view someone’s twitter and sing along to 99…

And although the lyrics contain the line "99 problems but a bitch ain't one," repeatedly, each tweet is only used once. Here's the chorus line, one more time.
