Jay Pharoah Proves Rappers Have Way More Than '99 Problems'

Posted: Updated:

When Jay Z said he had "99 Problems," he may have forgotten to count a few.

Sure, everyone thinks being a rap star is all about stacks of money and carloads of women, but "SNL" cast member Jay Pharoah and Above Average just revealed the shocking truth.

Pharoah's new music video, "Problems," takes a hard look at the real life issues every hip hop star has to deal with. These include massive debt from "making it rain," problems with all your baby mamas and apparently secretly wanting to be a farmer.

Check it out above.
