Mahogany Jones in the Fourth District

First Spins | Mahogany Jones #SugarWater

On this episode of First Spins, Adán Bean sits down with the Detroit-based emcee, Mahogany Jones, to talk about her latest album “Sugar Water” which dropped a couple months ago.

We were able to sit these two down during the 2016 A3C Festival ( held this past week, which she was in-town as a performing artist. Forth listeners get an exclusive look at Mahogany Jones’ new project and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of each track including her work as a US music ambassador traveling everywhere from Botswana and Uganda to Ethiopia. The two talk everything from the making of good music, her creative process and the team behind her, as well as the highs and lows of early recognition, setbacks and ultimately, breakthroughs.
