About “I Still Love H.E.R.

“I Still Love H.E.R.” centers on the venerable Love 1, a revered Chicago on-air personality, who’s angst about the current state of Hip-Hop has caused him to retire and dedicate his final broadcast to Hip-Hop as a memorial. In the midst of his farewell show, Hip-Hop, personified, arrives to tell her story “the way it really is.” Through the dialogue that follows, Love 1 and his listeners are told the story of Hip-Hop through her own words. Social issues such as feminism, parenting, racism, capitalist media domination and violence in the Hip-Hop community are examined throughout the show, with relevant Hip-Hop classics as the backdrop. By the end of his broadcast, Love 1 reconciles his love affair with his culture and realizes that he must "always take time to listen to the soundtrack of his life.”



“‘I Still Love H.E.R.’ is an important step towards the healing of an ailing generation,” said Tucker, who also directed the show. “Although this modern tale of cultural pride is definitely catered to the generation that actually grew up with Hip-Hop, age 25 and older, the positive messages will inspire young people, cause the older generation to think more about their effect on the youth and have anyone with even a casual affinity for Hip-Hop on their feet.”
