Instant Classic Common’s I Used To Love H.E.R.

"I Used To Love H.E.R." by Common

AH Video Review Rated:

As far as hip hop goes, this one was a classic from the moment we all heard it in 1994. I used To love H.E.R. is the story of hip hop from the perspective of then, Common Sense. (Before a rock band claimed that they had the name first and had him change it to Common). You are about to witness one of the most realest records ever recorded in the realm of hip hop.

i used to love h.e.r. Is Hip Hop History Explained –

This video helped start a real conversation at the time. I think when we look back on it now, we can see that several voices have been needed. Those of us who care about her, need to continue to work to bring her back to where she belongs. Too many continue to exploit her. (especially the culture vultures, which are now more clearly seen today than before).

Common sure didn’t have a video budget for this one, always wanted the video to be better. He did his best, given that time to express what the track was saying, displaying ‘her’ as she switched up her styles. We have to take her back… get her right, like she used to be.

Giving this 4 Fists, because the song itself is a pure hip hop classic!
