Jay Z- 99 Problems (rock cover)

Top notch Throwback Thursday

For this weeks Throwback Thursday I bring you the incredible cover of Jay Z’s “99 Problems” by artist Hugo.

Believe it or not, I had never heard of Hugo’s cover of “99 Problems” up until a few weeks when I was watching an episode of ‘The Blacklist’ (FYI I highly recommend you start watching it). After seeing it on the episode, I immediately went to my computer and looked it up.

I have to say I absolutely love this rendition by Hugo. I know many people may disagree and believe it takes away too much from the original, but for me that is what makes covers great! I love how Hugo completely re-imagined this track from a hip-hop song to a southern rock/blues styled version.

If you haven’t heard this version before, I highly recommend you check it out now!
