VIDEO: “I Used to Love H.E.R.”
Today is hip-hop’s birthday, so I’m celebrating by playing some of my favorite songs that have been written about H.E.R.
Here’s Common’s “I Used to Love H.E.R.” off of his “Resurrection” album:
“I Used to Love H.E.R.” is actually my #2 favorite hip-hop song of all time.
“I met this girl when I was 10 years old. And what I loved most she had so much soul. She was old school when I was just a shorty. Never knew throughout my life she would be there for me on the regular…”
Those are some true words! Hip-Hop has been with me ever since I fell in love with it. I used to love H.E.R. and I still do.
