Music and Film Director R. Malcom Jones and Samantha. Born to traditional Jamaican parents, R. Malcolm Jones was not initially encouraged to pursue a career in filmmaking.  Instead, he was told to focus on less artistic pursuits such as business and accounting.  But, as a child, he spent many an afternoon creating his first music videos with the use of two VCRs and a boom box.  Raised by a mother who juggled two jobs while keeping up with his schooling and extracurricular activities, he excelled in the arts, especially poetry, early on in school.  Further showcasing his talent in the arts and entertainment world, he once even planned, promoted, and successfully executed a Tupac Shakur concert.  At the tender age of 19 and still an unknown, successful endeavors such as this proved that he had what it took to make it in the entertainment industry. 

This was only the beginning of what Malcolm was destined to accomplish. 

From there he has gone on to direct music videos.  He has worked with artists such as Nas, Avril Lavigne, Pharrell Williams, T.I., The Game, R. Kelly, Fat Joe, Jermaine Dupri, Lil' Wayne, Diddy, Clipse, Rick Ross, Lil' Mama, Paul Wall, Pitbull, Trick Daddy, Birdman, Yummy Bingham, Slim Thug, Jadakiss, Eightball and MJG, and T-Pain. His most recent works include "Sexy Can I" by Ray J., "Shawty Get Loose" by Lil' Mama featuring Chris Brown and T-Pain, "My Drink N My 2 Step" by Cassidy featuring Swizz Beats, "Crying Out For Me" by Mario, "Hairbraider" by R. Kelly, and Lil' Mama's dramatic short film-like video, "L.I.F.E."  But it doesn't stop there!  Malcolm has been filming his first feature film “The Magic City.”
