Lost One

Song Information

The song features Chrisette Michele and is produced by Dr. Dre and Mark Batson. The song is composed by S. Carter, D. Parker, C. Payne, M. Batson, and A. Young.

Dr. Dre also told Scratch magazine in a 2004 interview that he has been studying piano and music theory to create this song.

The first verse is rumored to be about Damon Dash, his former friend and business partner. The second verse is rumored and most reasonably about Beyoncé though it is also rumored to be about former girlfriend Rosario Dawson as well.. The third verse is about his nephew, Colleek D. Luckie, who died in a car accident with the car, a Chrysler 300, that Jay-Z bought him for his graduation present. Jay-Z makes a reference to the film "Casino" with the line: "Should've stayed in food n' beverege/ too much flossing/ too much Sam Rothstein."

The beat was used in the 2006 Rap Up by Skillz.
