New Music! “The Next Chapter (Still Love H.E.R)”, Common

Almost ten years after the release of his under-rated hit, Common finishes up the tale of his love affair with hip-hop with “The Next Chapter (Still Love H.E.R)”. For you kids out there that may be too young to remember this iconic track or just weren’t into hip-hop at the time, download the original here before jumping to the sequel. Like many of Common’s tracks, the meaning of the song sort of gets lost if you don’t already know what he’s talking about. “I Used To Love H.E.R” blazed the trails as one of the first conscious hip-hop tracks to be released to the mainstream public offering a different outlook on hip-hop and its subject matter. Fast forward to “The Next Chapter”, Common is still as nice behind the mic as ever with his signature flow against the beat (I hate that shit but it works for him; I guess) and simple lyrics. The funky beat provided by J. Period with the help of a Portishead sample keep the track simple, easy to vibe to and doesn’t interfere with Common’s one verse. I love it! If you’d like to give Common’s new ode to hip-hop a once over, check out the download link below. Enjoy!
