Ghostface featuring Mary J. Blige, "All That I Got Is You"

In his first single as a solo artist (placed on his 1996 Ironman debut), Ghost uses his signature lyrical style to give vivid life to a man, who now has children, reflecting on his own childhood raised by a mother and grandmother. ("Grab the pliers for the channel, fix the hanger on the TV/ Rockin' each others pants to school wasn't easy," he rhymed.) Mary J.'s soulful vocals add a touch of gratitude to his humility.
