Jamal Fincher Jones (born October 15, 1977, or 1978), professionally known as Polow da Don, is an American record producer and rapper.

Jones has produced a variety of singles for a multitude of artists including "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj (2014), "Love In This Club" by Usher (2008), "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls (2006), "Forever" by Chris Brown (2008), "Baby By Me" by 50 Cent (2009), "Throw Some D's" by Rich Boy (2007), "Promise" by Ciara (2006), and "John" by Lil Wayne (2011), among others. In addition, Jones served as a producer for artists on his own label imprint under Interscope Records, Zone 4. Jones is also known for being a charismatic hype man for his records, with his vocals present on most of his productions.

Jones began his career as a rapper in the late 90s, leaving college to pursue a rap career with the group Jim Crow. The group signed to Sony Music Entertainment 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.
