Jamal Fincher Jones, professionally known as Polow da Don, is an American record producer, songwriter and rapper. His cousin is Atlanta singer Monica.
Jones has produced for a variety of artists including 2PM, Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Chris Brown, Nelly, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, T.I., Will Smith, Keri Hilson, Limp Bizkit, Kelis, and Usher.
Jones left college to pursue a rap career with his group Jim Crow. The group signed to Sony Records in 1999 where they released two albums—Crow's Nest (1999) and Right Quick (2001)—before being dropped. Although disappointed, Jones formed a Southern hip hop group with Bubba Sparxxx, Sean P, Pastor Troy, G Rock, and Timbaland. However, they split up without any releases. Jones started making beats around 2001. His first beat tape made its way to Interscope Records president Jimmy Iovine. The beats were eventually used for the tracks "Runaway Love" by Ludacris, "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls, and "This Is the Life" by Tru-Life, among others.
