US Mag : Please introduce yourself to the readers and Who or what inspired you to get into this profession?
Hi, my names is James Henry Jr. and I go by J-Hen. I was inspired to get into the music profession from listening to a lot of great artists growing up. Plus both my parents were into music one way or another up as well.

US Mag : What is your perception on originality in making music?
It’s like my grandmother’s sweet potato recipe she passed it down to my mother, who in turn passed it down to my sister. So to say with music, the original was with Michael Jackson everybody uses Michael Jackson’s music and puts their on spin on it. My perception on originality is just try to stay true to yourself when making music.
