Jay-Z’s 99 Problems as illustrated by Ali Graham

Jay-Z 99 problems illustrated by Ali Graham 01

How this hasn’t been done already, I don’t know, but British illustrator Ali Graham has decided to illustrate all 99 of Jay-Z’s unmentioned problems as a daily project.

These series of illustrated caricatures are becoming more and more popular, especially once the illustrator puts them into a tumblr format and updates it one by one every day. But I’m still in shock that no one had thought of this until now (myself included), so huge props to Ali Graham for this stroke of genius. Below is our highlight from the selection (spanning #01 to #45 at the time of writing) with key moments including Nothing Rhymes With Orange, Diggers in Paris and of course the currently relevant Picasso Baby.

To see Ali Graham’s professional work, check out his GrArG Media website and make sure you keep an eye on the 99 Problems tumblr.
