Common Fights for H.E.R.

After the release of his ode to hip hop, "I Used to Love H.E.R.," Common found himself in a fight for his lyrical life. Westside Connection took offense to the way the Left was portrayed in Com's recounting of his relationship with the genre, and unleashed "Westside Slaughterhouse." Common rolled with the punches and tapped Pete Rock for a blow with "The B-tch in Yoo."
