After Jay-Z did his own version of Ice-T's 1993 song "99 Problems" for The Black Album, the Law & Order star thought he should've received a shoutout.
"Why Jay-Z never said this is Ice-T's song?" said Ice in a past interview. "Show me some love. Me and Jay-Z are friends. I met Jay with Big Daddy Kane. That's just another way of handling the situation. I handled the situation differently. If I use your music I want to let people know."
Apparently, Jay either saw the interview or heard about it, and he approached Ice at the Grammys earlier this month.
“I’m at the Grammys and Jay-Z comes to me," said Ice during his interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood. "He says, ‘Ice, you know I love you, right?' I say, ‘Yeah.’ He says, ‘Well, it’s on the internet that you mad.’ I said, ‘I’m not mad. They’re bringing up all kinds of interviews about it and they asked me the story, and I told them the true story.’"
“He goes, ‘Yeah man, but it’s no hard feelings' ... But I said, ‘Yo, well, you know, when you did '99 Problems,' at the end of the record you could’ve said, ‘Ice.’ You could’ve given me a little dap or something,’" the rapper-turned-actor went on. "I said, ‘But I’m not mad at it. What had happened was people wanted to know the story.'”
Was Jay wrong for not shouting Ice out in "99 problems?"
