New Music: Kanye West – ‘Mama’s Boy’

Kanye West

Don’t mess with Kanye West. The self-proclaimed mama’s boy stands up for the most important woman in his life—his mother—on “Mama’s Boy,” a leftover from his Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy recording sessions. You may remember seeing him first debut the soulful song on top of a cafeteria table at Facebook’s headquarters last summer.

A 5-year-old Yeezy, who remained fly in Superman pajamas back in the day, reflects on being the only man worthy of his mother’s love and how he’s turned out to be one of the men he despised. “I never liked you ni**as, who knew one day I’d be just like you ni**as?” he raps. Alrrright!

    Obtuse rappers can’t go 10 seconds without using the “N” word. So ignorant.

    @Larry,

    Obtuse people know that rappers can’t go 10 seconds without using the “N” word yet they listen to rap anyway. So nonsensical.

    Mr. West>>>> I still think this should have made MBDTF as a second bonus track after “See Me Now.” Both songs have that vintage Kanye sound and it would’ve been nice to see this mastered.

    AND YOU KNOW WHAT PISSES ME OFF THE MOST?
    Lil Wayne can get MTV Unplugged off of 6’7,
    But a track like this is released, and NOTHING.
    People say this man was born cold, and it’s not even like that. I mean, sure, he made some mistakes, but who doesn’t? AND WHEN YOU HOLD SOMETHING LIKE THAT OVER SOMEONES HEAD, PRETTY MUCH FOREVER(VMA’s incident) NOW YOU’RE THE BAD GUY. He handled the scrutiny and interviews during the MBDTF saga beautifully, brought us good quality music every Friday in between then AND HE DOESN’T GET UNPLUGGED? Yeah, HE’S the cold one.
