MC 5 Cent Jones



Given the nickname “5 Cent” because of his short stature, MC 5 Cent Jones was born in Eagle Chute, Louisiana. Jones spent most of his life surrounded by plantation environment, as he was a laborer on the J.W. Lynn Plantation. This was often the subject of his work, but some of his pieces had an unusual take on plantation life. Jones’ work also includes Biblical subjects, portraits and nudes.
