Henry made his feature film debut in the Luis Guzman-led comedy Puerto Ricans in Paris in 2015. He next portrayed recurring character Tavis Brown on the Danny McBride and Walton Goggins comedy "Vice Principals" (HBO, 2016- ) and starred on Donald Glover's "Atlanta" (FX, 2016) as aspiring rapper Alfred "Paper Boi" Miles.
