                                  I've been tryin to find this for so damn long and I still cant find it
                                  Edit: so from what I could find you're on the right track, I guess its a cover of D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar" by The Roots. But I cant find a studio version of the cover, just live performances.

                                They’ll let Common rap to nonsense words but can’t put his real lyrics out there waking blacks up

                                                      Common and Black Though have respect for each other. This white fool trying to make it seem like one is better than the other.
