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 Jaz-O, his former mentor and business partner, or about long-time friend, business partner, and co-founder of Roc-a-fella Records Damon Dash. The second verse is rumored and most reasonably about Beyoncé but may also be about Rosario Dawson whom he dated from 2000 until 2002. Dawson was 23 when the relationship ended "and honestly at 23 I would probably love my work more than I did she," Jay spits. 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. [1] 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." Jay-Z can be seen driving the all rare Maybach Exelero in the video.

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