In 1994, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., aka Chicago-born rapper Common, released his LP Resurrection, and his single  “I Used to Love H.E.R.” became one of hip-hop’s greatest recordings. ‘H.E.R.’ is an acronym for ‘Hearing Every Rhyme,’ which transforms the title of the song to “I Used To Love Hearing Every Rhyme”. The song samples its jazzy beats from ”The Changing World” by George Benson and is an extended metaphor that uses the degradation of a woman to represent the changes Common saw in hip-hop music in the ‘90s.
