Jay Z was riddled with bullets in the video to his hit “99 Problems,” but his life difficulties didn’t end there. Illustrator Ali Graham created a Tumblr page to collect his visual thoughts on what it must be like for Jay Z the superstar dad, husband and entrepreneur.
“All I could think about suddenly was, ‘What could those 99 problems be for a superstar rapper?’” Graham tells Fast Company. “I really liked the idea of Jay Z as a character having to deal with everyday problems—and some not so everyday ones too.”
The Tumblr page became so popular that Graham has now collected them into a book where you can explore Hova’s various fears like flying with Superman, smelling bad and brain freeze. We’re pretty sure launching a music service will be in the next edition.
