A girl that we all knew and grew up with. It's the story of how over time, that girl changed into something she wasn't, and because of it, we lost our love for her. Her name is Hip-Hop.

I used to love Hip-Hop in its Essence and Realist, because Hip-Hop in its Essence IS Real. She's the realist thing in the world, and even though she's changed, I STILL love her.

This inspiration came from a song by Common Sense called "I Used to love H.E.R." on the album "Resurrection" (1994) http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=C99iG4HoO1c

This project took some time to formulate, and some more time to perfect. I wanted to capture Hip-Hop in such a way, that she appeared to be real, and actual. So I took that idea literally and put it right into the design: Words of Hip-Hop, who's silhouette seem to take the form of a girl. I used the negative space in the image of TwiggX's "Headphones pack" photo http://twiggxstock.devian tart.com/art/Headphones-p ack-134917379 and underlayed some text layers into it. After hours of carefully tweaking it's design, I've published it for all to see.
