Detroit-based rapper, educator, & Hip-Hop ambassador Mahogany Jones has released her sophomore opus, ‘Sugar Water‘. The project connects Jones’ distinct approach to lyricism with a heavy abundance of soul. While boom-bap will always remain the center of Jones’ style, ‘Sugar Water‘ moves her art into soulful environs.
As a continuation from her last release, the ‘Pure‘ compilation, the latest project serves Jones’ musical mission to inform and inspire. As Hip-Hop becomes more disparate between the genders by the day, Jones’ unrelenting pride and celebration of womanhood is at the core of ‘Sugar Water‘ along with the skill necessary to capture of the ears of those who might not be as receptive initially.
Tracks such as “Insight”, “Gold”, “Bring Back The Soul”, & “Grow” are among the many highlights present on the project. With production from Mahogany’s longtime producer iRonicLee, Darell “Red” Campbell, & newcomer Mozaic and features Iomos Marad, Gwenation, Katrina Mitchell, Rocdwell, & Kamakazi, ‘Sugar Water‘ aims to enlighten as well as entertain.
