Phillies Playoff Anthem Rips Off Jay-Z’s ’99 Problems’ (Video)

Jay-Z's Black Album was released to deserved fanfare in 2003. Among the tracks on what was billed at the time as the hip-hop legend's final album was "99 Problems."

That song was performed by Shawn Carter. It should have stayed that way.

A rapper (or whatever he wants to call himself) named Lil' Louie C reworked "99 Problems" into an anthem for the 2011 Philadelphia Phillies. The result — which is interesting, to say the least — can be viewed in the video below.
