Through his gritty and powerful lyrics, rapper Henmusik aka Hen (born Antoine Henderson) has developed a sound that engages with spirituality and the reality side of Hip Hop culture.
Hen was born on June 25, 1986 in Meriden, CT. As the progeny of his father, a fellow local rapper in the New England region, Hen developed a love for hip hop early on and began writing at age seven. In June 2000, he and his family moved to Virginia Beach, VA in search for a better life. Here, Hen fine tuned his passion by delving into an array of activities, including football, drama club and forensic acting. In 2015, Hen graduated from Norfolk State University, majoring in Mass Communications.
In 2010, Hen released his debut EP "Til War is Won" on iTunes. Hen had finally identified his niche market. Later that year, Hen followed up with his next project "Appetizer", produced by The 1st Kind, a Richmond, VA based production duo. Hen's next project "The Social Experiment", produced by Ohbliv was a project that expanded his sound and lyrical ability. The Social Experiment cultivated a fan base for his music. Hen continued working on his craft and building his brand; which led up to his self produced project entitled "A Shot of Hen" released in 2013. A Shot of Hen is a mixture of boom bap and soul inspired sounds that represent Hen's Hip Hop roots. New listeners and fans can enjoy "HennyThingGoes", a compilation of old music and new music produced by HenMusik. In 2018, fans can look forward to the release of Hen's debut LP, "Virgina Beach BLVD".
Hen, who is also the CEO of SoundLOY Productions stops at nothing to maintain balance and unity in his personal circle and puts full effort into pushing his SoundLOY brand. Simply put, Hen is artist you want to stay in tune with. This summer you can see HenMusik perform along the East Coast.
