Rick Rubin let some gems free when interviewed for New York Magazine's annual Yesteryear issue. Rick Rubin shared Chris Rock was the brains of '99 Problems'. Everyone can recite a '99 Problems' lyric but the most famous line is what Chris Rock is responsible for "I got 99 Problems but a bitch ain't one".

"Chris Rock had the idea for the chorus[..] It’s based on an Ice-T song called ’99 Problems’ and (Rock) said, ‘Ice-T has this song, and maybe there’s a way to flip it around and do a new version of that.’ I told Jay Z the idea and he liked it.”
