Vid Pick: Ciphurphace –I'll Always Love H.E.R.
Friday, June 17, 2016

You may already be familiar with Ciphurphace's "I'll Always Love H.E.R.," especially if you're a reader of my weekly NYC indie music column, the NYC Scene Report (and why wouldn't you be? It's one of the most awesome columns on NYC's indie music scene ever created). I featured the song there when it was first released as a single, back in November of last year. Now, Ciphurphace has an exceptional video for the song that features his own daughter.

For those who might need a quick refresher course on H.E.R., the phrase comes from the Common classic, "I Used to Love H.E.R.," and is a representation of hip-hop in human, female, form. The humanization of hip-hop is used as a metaphor to show everything that's happened with the music of the culture.

Much like in Common's song, Ciphurphace uses the concept of H.E.R. to describe the rise of hip-hop, and many twists, and turns, it has taken stylistically. The video gives visual homages to many of the artists alluded to in the song, and is capped off with a father-daughter beatbox session, which beautifully illustrates that they will both always love H.E.R.

Now you have to click play, because how can you resist a father-daughter beatbox session?

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
