If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son
I got ninety nine problems but a bitch ain't one

I got the rap patrol on the gat patrol 
Foes that want ta make sure my casket's closed 
Rap critics that say he's "Money Cash Hoes" 
I'm from the hood, stupid?what type of facts are those?
If you grew up with holes in your zapatos
You'd celebrate the minute you was having dough
I'm like "F*ck critics" you can kiss my whole asshole 
If you don't like my lyrics, you can press fast forward? 
Got beef with radio if I don't play they show 
They don't play my hits, well, I don't give a shit, so 
Rap mags try and use my black ass 
So advertisers can give 'em more cash for ads, f*ckers 
I don't know what you take me as 
Or understand the intelligence that Jay-Z has 
I'm from rags to riches, niggas I ain't dumb 
I got ninety nine problems but a bitch ain't one, hit me 

Ninety nine problems but a bitch ain't one 
If you having girl problems I feel bad for you son 
I got ninety nine problems but a bitch ain't one, hit me 

Year's '94 and my trunk is raw 
In my rear view mirror is the motherf*cking law 
I got two choices y'all, pull over the car or, hmm,
Bounce on the devil, put the pedal to the floor 
Now I ain't trying to see no highway chase with Jake 
Plus I got a few dollars I could fight the case 
So I, pull over to the side of the road 
I heard "Son, do you know why I'm stopping you for?" 
Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hat's real low 
Or do I look like a mind reader, sir? I don't know 
Am I under arrest or should I guess some mo? 
"Well you was doing fifty-five in the fifty-four", uh huh
"License and registration and step out of the car
"Are you carrying a weapon on you, I know a lot of you are" 
I ain't stepping out of shit, all my papers legit 
"Well do you mind if I look around the car a little bit?" 
Well my glove compartment is locked, so is the trunk and the back 
And I know my rights so you goin' need a warrant for that 
"Aren't you sharp as a tack? You some type of lawyer or something?
"Somebody important or something?" 
Child, I ain't passed the bar, but I know a little bit 
Enough that you won't illegally search my shit 
"Well we'll see how smart you are when the K-9 come" 
I got ninety nine problems but a bitch ain't one, hit me 

[Chorus: x2] 

Now once upon a time not too long ago 
A nigga like myself had to strong arm a ho
This is not a ho in the sense of having a pussy 
But a pussy having no goddamn sense try and push me 
I tried to ignore 'em, talk to the Lord 
Pray for 'em, cause some fools just love to perform 
You know the type, loud as a motorbike 
But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight 
The only thing that's goin' happen is I'ma get to clapping and
He and his boys goin' be yapping to the captain 
And there I go trapped in the Kit Kat again 
Back through the system with the riff raff again 
Fiends on the floor scratching again 
Paparazzi's with they cameras, snapping them 
D.A. tried to give a nigga shaft again 
Half a mil for bail cause I'm African 
All because this fool was harassing them 
Trying to play the boy like he's saccharine
But ain't nothing sweet 'bout how I hold my gun 
I got ninety nine problems being a bitch ain't one, hit me 

[Chorus: x2] 

Having girl problems I feel bad for you son 
I got ninety nine problems and a bitch ain't one 

You're crazy for this one, Rick, it's your boy
