J-Hen is an R&B/Hip-Hop recording artist from the Dallas metroplex area. His passion for music first began at an early age. During his middle school years, he taught himself how to write his own songs and in less than a few months had formed a rap group with a couple of friends. Soon after this time he fused the concept of rapping with singing and began to write, produce, and record music! While still in high school he and his friends released their first LP which included tracks of J-Hen singing. It was after this LP that J-Hen decided to switch over to R&B and he has been writing and producing music ever since.
