Renee (The Lost Boyz)

The heartbreak of a lost love inspired The Lost Boyz to pen a song about a “ghetto love” that ends tragically on their 1996 single, “Renee.” The tale of the beautiful around-the-way girl with the bright future ahead of her who loses her life at the hand of gun violence in the hood helped the Queens rap group capture their most successful single ever.
