Henny West, Taking Hip Hop to New Heights!
An Insight on The Success Story of a Young Musician
Art has no boundaries neither does it see cast color or creed. It is a universal language of the soul and has different forms of expression. Music, of all of them, tends to be the most effective and penetrating form since it can inspire anyone to achieve the milestones in his/her life. Henny West is one such fine musician, singer, songwriter, and composer who has been in the industry for over twenty years. With hip hop as his specialty, he has been doing concerts and events globally for quite some time now; this was before COIVD.
Of all the aspects of music, Henny loves the making of it. He is quite fascinated by how something so remarkable comes out of scratch, from nothing. Hip hop has always been a hot topic in showbiz and indie-production houses. With quite a lot of options to play with, there is more diversity than other music forms. This fact is exploited to the fullest potential by Henny as you can notice every song of him is explaining a different life phenomenon or shedding light on one of his life experiences. That is the real beauty of his music that it is relatable even for a common man.
Henny had his share of a rough time in his early childhood and teenage. He spent his early age in Carson, California. The neighborhood was rough out there. The situation further worsened as he became the victim of a gun shooting and barely managed to live as he also got injured in that shooting. In those days, luckily, he came across the process of music production and began working on his first project. That was the time he took off, and since then, he has never looked back. According to him, the grace of God has never let him fall. Henny regards music as his ultimate means of attaining peace in this life full of hassle, and he also calls it his source of earning and a way to improve his and his family’s lifestyle. Hence, it is another example of passion turned into a profession!
Even in this pandemic, he has been quite active in the music industry, doing online events, concerts, jams, and sessions. Perhaps, he judged the tone of the moment right as the world now needs music more than ever to relax and come out of this gloomy atmosphere COVID has left us in. Henny also considers his musical services as a way of giving back to society. So far, his musical masterpieces have inspired so many people and helped them turn their lives around altogether. Besides producing his music, Henny has also done collaborations with renowned names in the industry. Doing so has not only broadened his horizons but has earned him a lot of goodwill as well. He has also been a sound engineer and developer with other artists on their albums, making his experience more profound.
Debuting his career with the album Story to Tell, Henny narrated his own life experiences in front of the world in a symphonious manner while taking the aid of Hip hop style. His early life experiences, especially those in Carson, California, were the highlights of this album. It also shed light on the hardships he had to face since he had no parents to care for him. It touched the heart and soul of millions out there and proved to be a great hit in the Hip hop community, encouraging him to produce more. After a couple of years, he came back with his sophomore album, Show Me the Light. In this album, he talked about how music helped him finding peace; and made him a new human being altogether. The third one, Bout Time, is a collection of his different life experiences that he went through overtime. Finally, the last one, 1440, proved to be the biggest hit of all the three mentioned before. The name explains the fact that there is a total of 1440 minutes per day. Hence, every one of us has an equal share of time every day, yet we tend to spend it differently. He has released all his work under the name of his own production house, Dedicated to Your Entertainment. His new project, TrapRock, fuses Rock with Hip hop.
