18. Jay-Z's '99 Problems' samples an Ice T song released a decade earlier.
Jay Z's '99 Problems' might be one of the world's biggest hip-hop tracks, but the 2004 track is actually a big lyric sample from Ice T's 1993 song of the same name, which featured on his album 'Home Invasion'. Both tracks feature the iconic: "If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I've got 99 problems but a b***h ain't one."
