Come see my show. It’s the shiznit!
“I Still Love H.E.R.” centers on the venerable Love 1 (Wendell Tucker), a revered Chicago on-air personality, who has grown so disgusted with the messages and images in Hip-Hop that he has decided to retire and dedicate his final broadcast to Hip-Hop (Ella Lacey) as a memorial to mourn his “dead” culture. 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, DJ Revelations (Jeremy Noah), his co-host Deanna (London Davenport), 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 original mixes of relevant Hip-Hop classics as the backdrop. With the appearance of this mysterious woman, the question is not whether Hip-Hop is dead or alive, the question is can the “soundtrack of his life” bring Love 1’s passion for Hip-Hop back to life?
