I Used To Love H.E.R. Lyrics - Common

Review The Song (9)

yes yes y'all and you don't stop
to the beat yall and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
1,2 y'all, and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
to the beat comm-sense'll be the sure shock

Verse One:

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, not a church girl, she was secular
Not about the money, no studs was mic checkin her
But I respected her, she hit me in the heart
A few New York niggaz, had did her in the park
But she was there for me, and I was there for her
Pull out a chair for her, turn on the air for her
and just cool out, cool out and listen to her
Sittin on bone, wishin that I could do her
Eventually if it was meant to be, then it would be
cuz' we related, physically and mentally
And she was fun then, I'd be geeked when she'd come around
Slim was fresh jo, when she was underground
Original, pure untampered and down sister
Boy I tell ya, I miss her

yes yes y'all and you don't stop
to the beat yall and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
1, 2 y'all, and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
comm-sense ya'll and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
you act yo, we gotta be the sure shock

Verse Two:

Now periodically I would see
ol' girl at the clubs, and at the house parties
She didn't have a body but she started gettin' thick quick
Did a couple of videos and became afrocentric
Out goes the weave, in goes the braids beads medallions
She was on that tip about, stoppin the violence
About my people she was teachin me
But not preachin to me but speakin to me
in a method that was leisurely, so easily I approached
She dug my rap, that's how we got close
But then she broke to the West coast, and that was cool
Cause around the same time, I went away to school
And I'm a man of expandin', so why should I stand in her way?
She probably get her money in L.A.
And she did stud, she got big pub but what was foul
She said that the pro-black, was goin out of style
She said, "Afrocentricity, was of the past."
So she got into R&B hip-house bass and jazz
Now black music is black music and it's all good
I wasn't salty, she was with the boys in the hood
Cause that was good for her, she was becomin well rounded
I thought it was dope how she was on that freestyle shit
Just havin' fun, not worried about anyone
And you could tell, by how her titties hung

yes yes y'all and you don't stop
to the beat yall and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
1,2 y'all, and ya don't stop
yes, yes y'all and you don't stop
to the beat comm gotta be the sure shock

Verse Three:

I might've failed to mention that the chick was creative
But once the man got to her, he altered the native
Told her if she got an image and a gimmick
That she could make money, and she did it like a dummy
Now I see her in commercials, she's universal
She used to only swing it with the inner-city circle
Now she be in the burbs lookin' rock and dressin' hip
And on some dumb shit, when she comes to the city
Talkin about poppin glocks, servin rocks, and hittin switches
Now she's a gangsta rollin with gangsta bitches
Always smokin blunts and gettin drunk
Tellin me sad stories, now she only fucks with the funk
Stressin how hardcore and real she is
She was really the realest, before she got into show-biz
I did her, not just to say that I did it
But I'm committed, but so many niggaz hit it
That she's just not the same lettin all these groupies do her
I see niggaz slammin her, and takin her to the sewer
But I'ma take her back hopin that the shit stop
Cause who I'm talkin bout y'all is hip-hop

I Used to Love H.E.R. too | Reviewer: Stev | 3/27/12

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.

I love it | Reviewer: C'assou | 7/1/10

I read ur lyrics at work | Reviewer: Teirra Fuller | 9/20/07

Im absolutly in love with common.... he's real yet freaky, deep yet kinky. And i like it... alot. If you reading this holla

real hip hop | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/24/07

defines the meaning of hip hop. i can understand the anger from the west coast because what he says about it is true. they made hip hop about being gangster, getting drunk, and smoking blunts and other fake shit. im from chicago so this next statement might be a little biased but most chicago rappers stick to the real meaning of hip hop. unlike the south and the west. the east is on the line.

A Poet | Reviewer: Isnou | 7/11/07

you already said everything: thats whats Hip Hop's about!
he did it with his Soul, thats the real rap music.
I thank God that brazilian rappers have this same felling Common have to rhyme. 'Cause if brazilian rappers starts to look like some mainstream USA rappers, mas, we'll be fucked up.

i love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/25/06

Exactly i mean common is the definition of hip-hop. whats more real than this song? this is not only coming from his mouth like rap but its coming from his heart and thats hip-hop. i want to hear more raw hip-hop shit like this.

i love it | Reviewer: ashley | 5/25/06

Common is the true meaning of hip-hop. this song didnt just come from his mouth like rap it came from his heart and thats what hip-hop is. hip-hop is not 50cent,The Game,etc.. Hip-Hop is Run DMC,Jam Master J,Common,etc.. what can be more real than this song? if you love this song just as much as me e-mail me. rah_digga_n_hoopz_mix@yahoo.com
