Common – I Used To Love H.E.R.

Like yesterday’s Be blog, I’m posting another entry in honor of the release of Universal Mind Control this Tuesday. Before “The Light”, “The Corner”, or “The People”, Common made one of the best hip hop tracks of all time. “I Used to Love H.E.R.” tells the story of hip hop’s evolution, except Com is referring to hip hop as a girl. Common even references the west coast era of hip hop in this track which sparked the unlikely feud with Ice Cube. This track is purely timeless!
