The Rise Up Music Project for Jan. 14, 2019 is Mahoghany ARTISTNATION, a fearless storyteller, dreamer without apology, advocate for the underdog, lover of music and kindness, DOPE spoken word artist & songwriter from Baltimore!

Also known as Mahoghany Ayot Eerised, I asked why she went by Mahoghany ARTISTNATION.

“I love combining my name with my brand and my brand with my way of life, and for me the creative is my world,” she said. “Art is my nation where I not only come alive but I thrive and I soar.”
