Kanye West Responds To ‘Mama’s Boyfriend’ Leak


DamnAnthony / June 16, 2011

At the beginning of the week a leak of what was thought to be Kanye West’s song “Mama’s Boyfriend” had took place and the track was all over the internet. Apparently the song was not official as the vocals were stolen and placed on another beat. In the statement below Kanye expresses his dissapointment with the fake track being released:

“The version of the Kanye West recording “Mama’s Boy” that arrived on blog sites earlier this week is entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions. As is often the unfortunate case, an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West’s vocal track and added their own soundbed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track from the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions. The result in no way resembles the final song Kanye West intended his fans to hear, and he is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way. Needless to say, measures are being taken to identify and prosecute the persons responsible for leaking this material.”
