Summary: Thank You
Comment: Thank you Lord for rappers like Common, give my ears rest from hearing the rubbish that they call hip hop these days. I Used To Love H.E.R. is the greatest hip hop song of all time.

Comment: I like the clever way in which he describes his love affair with Hip-Hop using that ill metaphor. Like the proverbial good girl gone bad. Don't think I've ever heard anything like it! Cube shouldn't have tried to get at him at all. Nice production values too!

Summary: Greatest Of All Time
Comment: What other song in any music genre has ever talked about a love affair with that music in the way Common did with 'Used To Love H.E.R.'- NONE. And to think, this was only his second album. He has the most classic, most talked about hip hop song of all time. Amazing.

Summary: Ingenious And Ironic
Comment: Ingenious because I believe this was the first time someone used a girl as a metaphor for something, which has since been done a great deal. Ironic because it came out in what is probably hip-hop's second greatest year ever, 1994. Wow, and he thought it was bad THEN.

Summary: Plain And Simple
Comment: To set it straight this is the best Hip Hop song ever. Bottom line- period. This song is a template for what Hip Hop is, even though it was made years ago. It still tells you exactly what has happened to the game. "She's so commercial, she used to only swing it with the inner city circle". Common is Hip Hop!

Summary: Conscious Hip Hop Classic
Comment: Greetings, this cut deserves itís place amongst the classics of conscious hip-hop lyricism. I remember Common outside of SBI (Business School at FAMU). He said he would make it big in the rap game, and everyone laughed at him. I'm very proud of the brother. Not for just "making it" but representing the true nature of hip-hop that started with groups like the "Last Poets". These early pioneers were "Edutainment" before the word was even coined. The genius of Common to juxtapose the history of a sister and the history of hip-hop is sheer brilliance. This brotha is a true wordsmith.

Summary: One Of My Favorites
Comment: Hip-Hop was born and itís here forever. I use to love her and I still do. I cant wait for the day I hear my daughter playiní some olí tribe, de la, or bdp, and I can ask her "What you know bout that?" I canít wait to show her what hip-hop was before it was tainted and big $$ came into the picture. "I Used To Love Her", is a product of true love for hip-hop and a great record. I wish I could type more.

Comment: Common continues to satisfy his fans, this is one of his illest joints yet. He knows Hip Hop, and he expresses that in this joint. I reccomend it to all.

Summary: Smudge Is Right
Comment: The Best Common song by far. Goes really in depth in contrasting a girl to Hip-hop,
great joint to calm you down. I don't know why Ice Cube had to front. Common liked
Cube. Go and buy this album!

Summary: Who Im Talkin Bout Is Hip Hop
Comment: At first you think that Common is talkiní about a girl that dumped him, but as soon as you listen to the whole song you realize itís hip-hop that he is talking about. I realized that the whole thing made sense. He completely emphasized the changing of hip-hop. Brilliant song!
Name: Heiswierdbutcool (Posted: 11/20/2003 11:02:00 AM)
Comment: This song is really good. The music, and how Common flows, are perfect. The lyrics are an allegorical story in which he uses a woman to represent Hip-Hop. Common says that hip-hop is loosing its uniqueness and goodness because the West Coast added gangsta rap to it. Ice Cube is very childish to take offense from this song because it wasn't even directed to him, specifically. But he might as well. This song and all of Common's songs is a perfect example of true Hip-Hop. Itís tight.

Summary: Yes Yes Ya'll
Comment: The true meaning of hip-hop reciting rhymes into a form were as you relate it to something everyone understands. Common has been on top every sence I've frist heard of him. I feel privileged to be from the same city (Chicago) and have lived a few blocks down from Common who I feel is the BEST emcee ever. This is the greatest hip-hop song of all time. Who dares to argue?

Summary: I Still Love Her
Comment: This is one of the best hip-hop tracks ever recorded. You know anything with Common on it is at least a good track, but this is one of his best. The smooth beat with phat snare kicks is just perfection. A truly excellent track.

Summary: Best Common Track
Comment: Another classic from the windy city front man Common. This track needs to be viewed as one of the best hip hop songs ever. He compares hip hop to the life of a woman as she makes the wrong choices. Common's rhymes show why he is one of the best emcees of our time.
