I Used to Love H.E.R. too | Reviewer: Stev
    ------ About the song I Used To Love H.E.R. performed by Common

I also used to be in love with H.E.R. Hip hop was used to have soul, meaning and value. Nowadays all I her is crap the puts emphasis on bling, whores, and busting a a cap in someone's ass. Don't get me wrong, I still listen to some mainstream rap artists but that only pleases me temporarily. I most definantly used to love H.E.R., uphold H.E.R., give H.E.R. every minute of everyday. Now I only stop by ocassionally to say "Hi" to H.E.R.

    ------ About the song The 6th Sense performed by Common

Yo D Joe, is true lyrics what you post, gotta put the love of Hip-Hop on this too, slap the same lyrics on this review!

"I start thinking, how many souls hip-hop has affected How many dead folks this art resurrected How many nations this culture connected Who am I to judge one's perspective? Though some of that shit y'all pop true it, I ain't relating If I don't like it, I don't like it, that don't mean that I'm hating I just want to innovate and stimulate minds Travel the world and penetrate the times !Escape through rhythms in search of peace and wisdom Raps are smoke signals letting the streets know I'm with 'em¬°"

    ------ About the song Thisisme performed by Common

This song is a work of art, if more people knew it the world would be a better place.
A few corrections i noticed in the first few lines i think he says "Good morning Viet-Com"
A few lines later he says tweedleet deet idk where you got sweetly oblique. And later he says "want some fire tree than buy from me" not flyers to read.
