Kanye West ‘Deeply Disappointed’ Over ‘Mama’s Boy’ Leak

Kanye West

Kanye West is not a happy camper. The rapper is upset after his unfinished song “Mama’s Boy” (aka “Mama’s Boyfriend”) surfaced on the Internet earlier this week. In a statement issued on Wednesday evening, West calls the emotional song’s leak “bogus and unsanctioned” and explains that the version online is not official. “He is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way,” explains his rep. West is pursuing action against the party who leaked the track. Read the full 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.”

    Kanye “Mama’s Boyfriend” is hands down my favorite song from him ever and im a huge Kanye Fan. A lot of kids growing up went through that same situation and will touch a lot of people. Im sure if theres ever a final version it will be just as appreciated.

    Who taught you how to leak songs online? Yeezy taught me! Lol

    It’s an unfortunate situation but he is blowing it way out of proportion. We’re in a time where music leaking is inevitable. He shouldn’t feel like he’s exempt from the same “hardships” other artists are dealing with every album release.

    Kanye sounds like his had enough! F__k’em anyway the final result will be mind-boggling as Kanye also delivers good/real music. But he needs to figure out who the are his true’s and who aren’t true to his art – I’m kind of pi__ed!

    he’s not the only artist that gets music leaked. I’m not saying that he shouldn’t be upset, but he shouldn’t make it such a big deal. this is the internet nowadays. if he says it isn’t finished, then people will be even more inclined now to want the finished product because he is a great artist!
