Henry McKnight AKA Big Hen | Mapping a Modern MS

Saturday, July 9, 2016

Big Hen is a rapper and producer from Natchez, Mississippi. He strives to be part of the evolution and propagation of Mississippi hip hop, incorporating Mississippi sounds and flavor into all he does.

“We all about creating. We’re like a big pot of gumbo. We mix things in. We’re not afraid to try new things. We don’t have too much to work with but we make a lot with what we have.” – Big Hen
