Lost Boyz is an American hip hop group from Queens, New York. It consists of Mr. Cheeks, Freaky Kah & K Chrys.

The group was formed in 1993 by Mr. Cheeks, Freaky Tah, Spigg Nice & Pretty Lou. Lost Boyz made their debut in 1995 with the single "Lifestyles of the Rich & Shameless", which charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and landed them a record deal with Uptown Records. The group contributed the song "Renee" to the soundtrack of Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, with the song eventually becoming a major hit and breaking into the Top 40 on the Hot 100 chart.

Following the success of "Renee", Lost Boyz released their debut album, Legal Drug Money, in 1996, and achieved critical and commercial success. Their second album, Love, Peace & Nappiness, was released in 1997, and featured another Hot 100 hit single, "Me & My Crazy World". The album wasn't as acclaimed as their debut, but fared well commercially.

On the night of 28 March 1999, Freaky Tah was fatally shot in the head while attending Mr. Cheeks' birthday party in Queens. The three remaining group members finished their third album LB IV Life, released in 1999 to little success, leading to the group's disbandment. Mr. Cheeks pursued a solo career, and has since released several albums. In 2004, DJ Spigg Nice was tried and convicted of multiple bank robberies in New Jersey and was sentenced to 37 years in prison.

Lost Boyz was reformed in 2019 as a new line-up with original member Mr. Cheeks, Freaky Tah's son Freaky Kah, and K Chrys.
