Earlier this week, the long awaited Kanye West song "Mama's Boyfriend" surfaced on the internets, surprising and exciting us all. Apparently, Ye was surprised as well, as the vocals of the track were stolen from him by an unknown person/party and released over a beat of their own. They then proceeded to release it, saying it was entirely Kanye West's song. Kanye and/or his management released this statement below:
.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."
