I see niggas slammin' her,

from Common – I Used to Love H.E.R. Lyrics on Rap Genius


Pretty sure this is a reference to Onyx' single “Slam” (and, of course, a continuation of the metaphor of rappers debasing hip-hop)

However Common may be saying that rappers and “slamming” hip hop, which may refer to not being careful with it, and also he’s referring Hip Hop as a lady. (Being a gentleman is to be gentle with a woman)
