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."
