Used to, but still got love

from Kanye West (Ft. Common & Talib Kweli) – Get Em High Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Common’s making a sly reference here to his song “I Used to Love H.E.R.”

As any hip-hop head knows, the song voices common’s disappointment with hip-hop artists ‘manufacturing’ the art, commercializing and whoring-out the culture, losing it’s essence and ‘innocence’ in a way (a fitting self-reference considering kanye and talib’s exchanges above).

But then, he’s ‘still got love’ for it. More deeply, Common was hot back in the day (circa Resurrection for example), but real hip-hop heads ‘still got love’ for him
