What’s The Irony’s Mahogany Jones’ latest single “Gold”, an introspective journey battling materialism versus integrity, is Hip-Hop Soul at its finest. Musical producer Mozaic masterfully uses hypnotic polyphonic rhythms to pull you in, while Jones’ skillful & thought provoking lyricism captures the listener’s attention.
Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does, when the hook drops and it’s the soulful crooning of Sean C. Johnson reminding us “You’re soul’s worth so much more than gold…”. The final surprise is a guest appearance from emcee, Young Joshua, who’s deep lyrics & sick flow drives the point home helping make “Gold” a certified classic.
Hip-Hop Soul recording artist, arts educator, activist, & US musical ambassador Mahogany Jones’ sound & presence embodies soul, grace, strength, & a lyrical dexterity like none other. A3C notes her as a “…blend between Lauryn Hill & Remy Ma”.
She’s shared stages with Rapsody, Les Nubians, Moonchild, KEM, J Live, Lecrae, & others. Noted as being a 4x undefeated Freestyle Friday champion on what was BET’s “106&Park”, Jones has something for the entire world to hear.
With 3 albums & 2 mixtapes under her belt, her latest effort, ‘Sugar Water’, doesn’t disappoint. She is currently working on an album with trumpeter & composer Kris Johnson and a remix for her next single, “Dying Breed”, featuring J Live & Life Long for Fall 2017.
