Watch Jack White cover Jay-Z's '99 Problems'

Jack White kicked off his US tour over the weekend at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival and celebrated by dropping a cover of Jay-Z's '99 Problems' into his set. You can watch him cover the track below. 

White, who recently completed a full European tour in support of his new record Lazaretto (which you can preview on the right of the page), worked the cover into his own track 'Icky Thump' at the start of his encore. 

This cover is not that unexpected as the former White Stripes man and Jay-Z do have history together, they recorded a collaboration together in 2010, although White recently admitted that those tracks will probably never come out, telling Billboard that he wasn't sure Jay-Z "liked them". 

The rapper also released a special edition of his new album Magna Carta, Holy Grail on White's Third Man Records last year.

Jay-Z is currently in the middle of an extensive US tour with his wife Beyonce, while White will return to the UK in November for a full arena tour.
