i have this one track on some old hip hop mix tape and i want to know who its by.

i was told it was aretha franklin but i don't think so(?) and i can't decide whether its a man or woman singing.

it sounds like old funk/soul and the lyrics to the chorus go:

you've got the right to be disgusted,
after all you trusted, me and i, was just a fool
but baby won't you please try, to forgive the guy, that made you cry, won't you

I'm assuming that you are currently in posession of said mix tape?

Why not rip it and upload it somewhere if you can. Perhaps letting others listen to it may help some more?

is it the original sample source that you're looking for? do you know what the hip-hop song it is?

Google says, perhaps:

Sly Johnson - 'I Hate, I Walked Away' (Hostile Records)


(Also saw this listed elsewhere as 'Syl Johnson' -- don't know my old soul well enough to tell which is correct. Apparently Rza sampled this for some Wu song or another, and it also appeared in one of the Beta Band's breezeblock radio sets... which is how I came across it.)
