What do a hip-hop artist, a Haitian storyteller, an accordion player, a boat builder, culinary artist and an herbalist all have in common? They’re this year’s folk masters selected by the Florida Folklife Council, which is part of the state’s Division of Historical Resources.

And that hip-hop artist is Jacksonville’s Mal Jones.
