Kanye West’s ‘Mama’s Boy’ Leak a Fake, He Plans to Sue
In a statement released late Wednesday (June 15), 'Ye expressed his disappointment revealing that the version that made it to the 'Net was unfinished and not up to his standards. He also vowed to seek legal action against whoever released the track without his consent. "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," read the statement.
"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," read the statement. 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."
The song, which was produced by the Chicago MC, finds the Chicago MC tapping into the thoughts of his 5-year-old self, rapping about the men in his mother's life. 'Mama's Boy' was originally said to be on his platinum selling 'My Beautiful Dark Twister Fantasy' album but failed to make the final cut.
