Unreleased Mary J. Blige!

East Coast-meets-West Coast from South Central's Yo Yo and taken from her doomed fifth release "Ebony" in 1998. After four successful releases, the project was shelved due to contractual issues; most, if not all, of the guest appearances did not have proper clearance to work with an artist on East West Records and thus began the first year of many disasters for this hopeless label which would've otherwise put out quality content. Blige was replaced with Kelly Price on the promotional single release and up until now, it had not been heard before. As far as I am aware, it only exists here and cannot be found on any copies of her full album. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for this amazing score!
