Hen was born on June 25, 1986 in Meriden, CT. As the son of a fellow local rapper in the New England region, Hen developed a love for hip hop and began writing at age seven. In June 2000, he and his family moved to Virginia Beach, VA in search for a better life.
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 of Hen's Hip Hop roots. New listeners and fans can enjoy "HennyThingGoes", a compilation of old music and new music. In 2018, fans can look forward to the release of Hen's debut LP, "Virginia Beach Boulevard".
