    On Saturday night, Jack White kicked off his latest leg of North American tour dates at Louisville’s Forecastle Festival. Continuing the trend started during his recent European jaunt, White worked in several covers into his setlist. Among the biggest highlight: a rendition of Jay Z’s “99 Problems” worked into “Icky Thump”. Watch the fan-shot video below.

    The cover shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given Jack and Jay’s history together. They previously collaborated in the studio on a few as-yet-unreleased songs. Most recently, White’s Third Man Records released a special vinyl rendition of Jay’s Magna Carta Holy Grail.
