These hilarious rap illustrations by artist Ali Graham were inspired by Jay-Z’s hit song ‘99 Problems.’ Basically, these awesome pictures illustrate Jay-Z’s 99 problems, from beard envy to bad twerk ethic.

Some of these comical cartoonish rapper illustrations also feature artists like Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. This brilliant illustration idea takes a hit song and turns it into a hysterical art series. Some of the other 99 problems found in this funny collection include poor table service, too much talent in one room and "cup runneth over." Some of the problems depicted here are pretty common, while others are rather bizarre.

This amusing art series was created just before the release of Jay-Z’s new album, which seems extremely appropriate. These fantastically funny Jay-Z illustrations will likely please rap fans. Stats for Literal Rap Interpretation Art Trending: Older & Buzzing
