Does Jay-Z still have 99 problems?

"Magna Carta Holy Grail" has brought out Jay-Z's conversational side.

The rapper's typically pretty quiet on Twitter, but on Monday he opened the floodgates by responding to a series of tweets from fans and critics alike.

One Twitter user was curious if Jay is still beleaguered by those "99 Problems" he rhymed about a decade ago with 2003's "The Black Album," or if they've "all been sorted."

It turns out that creating new rules, as the rapper aimed to do with "MCHG," is a lot like having more money.

But perhaps the most entertaining thing - aside from the fact that Jay doesn't "lol" like the rest of us; he has #mylaugh - were the lighthearted and humorous responses, even when taking criticism.

Promising that he was sticking to the #factsonly, Jay was also pretty frank in his replies.

"MCHG" doesn't officially arrive until Tuesday, but many have already heard the album thanks to its early release to 1 million Samsung customers on July 4. Critical response has been mixed, and if fans were left wanting, Jay's Twitter chat hinted that there's more to come.

When a fan asked whether "MCHG" will be his last album, he jokingly replied, "I tried that before, I wasn't so good at it."

    I'd like him to toss around the "N" word more, then hear him tell me how it "took it back". He's whats wrong with black America.
