Tha Bizness is an American hip hop production duo from Seattle, Washington consisting of J-Hen & Dow Jones.


Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, the production duo, who are cousins, were inspired by artists such as Teddy Riley, DJ Premier, Mannie Fresh and DJ Toomp. Upon graduating with a degree in Business Management from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Dow returned to Seattle, searching for the opportunity in music, while putting his degree to good use. Ultimately it was his biggest influence, a member of the original Rock Steady Crew, that allowed Dow to see deejaying as an actual art form, inspiring him to launch a career in music. J-Hen however, had been focusing more on being a keyboardist and producer. Realizing they had reached a certain level in Seattle that couldn’t be surpassed, they decided to take their career's to the next level relocating to Los Angeles in 2002. Determined to start their own production company the two worked together combining Dow's techniques as a deejay and J-Hen's talent on the keyboards.cite web |url= |title=Producer's Corner: Tha Bizness |publisher=Dork Magazine |date=2007-12-16 |accessdate=2008-10-01]

In 2006, Tha Bizness signed a production deal with G-Unit’s Sha Money XL’s, "Teamwork Music Inc". As a part of the deal, Tha Bizness began doing in-house production for 50 Cent, Young Buck, Spider Loc and G-Unit’s new acquisition Young Hot Rod. Dow stated to Vibe Magazine:They also began producing beats for Lil Scrappy, Ras Kass, Trae, Jody Breeze, Yung Joc, Glasses Malone, Bishop Lamont and Keak da Sneak. In regards to their production style, it was well received because of their "unique texture and ability to make big records without using samples."cite web |url= |title=Tha Bizness Production Duo Inks Deal With G-Unit's Sha Money XL |publisher=Vibe Magazine |date=2006-7-20 |accessdate=2008-10-01]
