Kanye West “deeply disappointed” with unauthorised ‘Mama’s Boyfriend’ leak


Following the well-received digital leak of a new Kanye West track titled “Mama’s Boyfriend” earlier this week – a deeply personal song about West’s mother, Donda, who died in November 2007 from cosmetic surgery complications – it has been revealed that the leaked version of the song is in no way the finished track and isn’t remotely the way the Chicago hailing producer/emcee intended for it to be heard.

In fact, someone stole his vocals and laced them with their own beat without Kanye’s knowledge or consent. ‘Ouch’ would be an understatement.

“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,” a statement reads, as reported by RapRadar.

“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.”
