Up And Coming Music Artist

J. Haynes 

Raised in North Houston, J.Haynes stumbled into music by mistake, realizing he had a knack for rhyme in 2011 following an impromptu studio session with fellow Houston emcee Mista Shano.

In time he would strike out on his own – eventually stumbling into Atlanta’s booming indie scene – he quickly set himself apart from the pack with the 2013 release of All Or Nothing, featuring OG Mel, Team Stackz Keezy and more.



Drawing inspiration from artists including Childish Gambino, Nipsey Hussle, Ace Hood, T.I. – and Texas natives like DJ Young Hurk, Derrick McKinney and Chuck Cash Cow – he’s since hit the ground running, crafting a unique sound he describes as “southern with a bit of West Coast influence.”

After bursting onto the airwaves of Houston’s own TheCore94, a popular online radio platform, his music began to spread, thanks in part to an eclectic balance between the Bayou City and Atlanta’s renowned underground scenes. Now J.Haynes is ready to enter the big leagues, as he prepares to deliver a new EP titled Ain’t No Pressure: Volume 1 that includes the Lea Marie and Ashten assisted “Addicted,” as well as a banger featuring Kingpin Cash called “Bandz.”

No stranger to hard work, J.Haynes has hit the road, traveling across the country as his sound and fanbase has continued to grow in the south and beyond – thanks in part to the creation of his rising label, A-List Muzik Entertainment.

As anticipation for J.Haynes builds, one thing is for certain, you’ll definitely want to remember his name.

Justin Boykin

H2T: You go by a unique nickname, what do they call you?
Justin: BarberBoy
H2T: Where are you from?
Justin: From Mobile, Alabama! Born and raised by my mother Inetta Boykin (TheMoodSetta). I was born September 8, 1989 I’m one out of seven children. I have one brother and five sisters.

H2T: When did you know that you wanted to be a barber?
Justin: My mother bought me my first pair of clippers at thirteen and I played around with the clippers until I was sixteen. I Got My first job at a fast food restaurant called What-A-Burger.

H2T: Did you graduate from high school?
Justin: At nineteen I dropped out of Vigor High School not knowing what I was going to do. I heard about White’s Barber College, a barber school in Mobile that accepts students with no high school diploma and no GED. I jumped on it!

H2T: White’s Barber College has been around for a long time! My Dad was born in 1933 and he was a student and then a barber instructor at White’s. How long was the program?
Justin: A 1500 hour course that took me three long years to complete.
H2T: Why did it take you three years?
Justin: Because I kept getting kicked out.
H2T: Kicked out? Why?
Justin: Because I was young and dumb.
H2T: That’s a very honest answer.
Justin: God knew what he was doing and things turned around. I made the front page of the Mobile Press Register newspaper and I was on Channel 5 & Channel 10 news. Mr. Isaac White, really helped me become a man before I graduated. Ten years later I’m still at it and still very much in love with my craft.
H2T: Why do you love barbering?

Healthy Living

Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish. Diet may seem unrelated to your hair, but it makes a huge difference. Diet also has the added benefit of improving your body at the same time.
Since hair is made of protein, make sure you’re getting plenty of protein in your diet. People who suffer from anorexia nervosa or those who undergo extreme weight-loss programs will experience stunted hair growth. Some proteins to consider incorporating into your diets: lean meats such as chicken and turkey, fish, eggs, soy products, beans, and nuts. These foods will help promote healthy keratin production, which are the building blocks of hair. Eat the right kinds of fat. Certain fats are essential to both a healthy lifestyle and healthy hair production. Fats in moderation help maintain healthy hair and skin production.

Fats will help you process the vitamins and minerals in your diet that are necessary for healthy hair production, including Vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Eat the right kinds of fats. Saturated fats, trans fatty acids, and hydrogenated fats are examples of fats that you should avoid. Omega 3 fats, found in marine and plant oils, are good for healthy hair.
For this reason, B-complex tablets containing fish oils are helpful in speeding up the growth of hair follicles.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will promote hair growth. Your body acts like a finely-tuned machine, and certain things, like sleep, can help regenerate cells and promote overall health.
Severe cases of stress, suffered after the death of a loved one, for example, or extreme emotional isolation, can cause the body to go into a kind of survival mode in which it only produces things vital to bodily survival. During these times, hair production may stop.

On the other hand, when your body has enough nutrients and energy stored up so that it doesn’t need to focus on simply keeping you alive, it can devote resources to build up and protect your hair. Maintain a good diet and healthy lifestyle maximize your body’s daily resources.
Clear emotional stress from your life. Learn how to manage the normal stress that your body produces as a result of daily activities and unexpected occurrences. In large quantities, stress can halt hair production, though it will not contribute to baldness in either males or females.
Exercise is a great way to release pent-up stress. Jogging, swimming, lifting light weights, or even walking is part of a healthy lifestyle. It will help your body process foods and vitamins, sleep better, and reduce large amounts of stress.

Exercise: 7 benefits of regular physical activity
You know exercise is good for you, but do you know how good? From boosting your mood to improving your sex life, find out how exercise can improve your life.
Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.
No. 1: Exercise controls weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.
No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

No. 3: Exercise improves mood
Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

No. 4: Exercise boosts energy
Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores. Read more………….

Made from the fruit of the marula tree, which is native to South Africa, this oil is rich and hydrating. It’s full of fatty acids, which dermatologists say soothe dry skin. It absorbs quickly and won’t leave you shiny or greasy.

Tea Tree

Red, inflamed breakouts happen when bacteria gets trapped inside your pores. Research shows that tea tree oil helps zap that bacteria. In one trial, it beat a placebo gel (which has no active ingredients) at treating acne and calming inflammation. Another study found that it was as effective as benzoyl peroxide, a common ingredient in over-the-counter zit remedies.


Sometimes called “liquid gold,” argan oil is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which can fight the effects of aging. Dermatologists also say its omega-3 fatty acids boost collagen growth and plump up your skin. It doesn’t matter if you have a dry, oily, or normal skin type. It also conditions hair, but doesn’t weight it down or make it feel greasy. You can still use your other hair care products, too.
