Jay Z

  • LYRIC: 
    "'Am I under arrest or should I guess some more?'
    'Well, you was doing 55 in a 54'"

    99 Problems - Jay Z

    The Black Album, 2003



    • The speed and limit "55 in a 54" is represented literally with 55 colored dots in a frame of 54 black dots.
    • 99 of those dots are fitted between the top and bottom rows, and very lightly numbered - referencing the chorus/song name. 
    • Print also features a highlighted diamond in its center, a reference to the ROC's diamond.
