Yeah, there really isn't a good tab for this, and i like this song alot,
therefore, i tabbed it.

 Intro\Chorus - 1:57 (can't really tab out the rythym on this, but slow the song down on 
media player and you'll get it)
             x6
e|----|-------| these are just the chords |----| on 6th time end on this
B|-13-|-11-13-|                           |-11-|
G|-12-|-10-12-|                           |-10-|

E|----|-------|                           |----|

 I'm pretty sure Omar uses a harmonizer(e.g. Whammy pedal) on the 3^ setting
(slide to every note but still hit it)
  Verse 1 - 2:24                                            x3  w/feedback

E|----------------------------------|

  Gtr. 1               x6 Gtr. 2 repeats every 4th time of Gtr. 1's part
e|-----------------------|------------------------------------0--0---------|

D|-----4-----------4-----|------------------------------------x--x---------|
A|-----------------------|-(scrape pick slowly down string)---6--3---------|
E|-----------------------|-------------------------------------------------|

 on last time, hit last chord using delay and some other effects, maybe a phase shifter.
