I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one, hit me
The canine, “bitch,” that was supposed to show up to sniff his car for drugs never arrived. Thus, it’s not a problem.
Jay-Z states in Decoded that he intentionally left this outcome unclear.
…But in the song I left the outcome ambiguous-does he get away or not? I like ambiguous endings, like Shane staggering off into the sunset at the end of the movie. Does he die or does he live? And the larger question: Should he die or live? I leave it to the listener to decide.“ (Page 61)
