kanye west Update: Kanye Wests Mamas Boyfriend leak is apparently fake

Yeezy first offered a taste of “Mama’s Boyfriend” in a cappela form at Facebook HQ back in July 2010, however, he ultimately chose to omit the track from his latest opus, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Now, some seven months after his LP’s release, a finished version of the song has hit the web. Remember the good times below (via G.O.O.D. Music Blog):

Update: Universal Music claims the leak is fake. Their full statement follows:

“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.”

I figured that that track was not produced well enough to be a legit Yeezy track.

Hey, sounds like Kanye back in 2004 :) Great song, but I understand why it didn’t make “Dark Fantasy”. It makes me want more though!

It’s fucking brilliant. At the beginning it sounds like a sequel to Hey Mama

Garbage.  So sick of these ignorant, talentless rappers using the “N” word.   Enuff already.

So instead of having the balls to type nigger, or nigga, yourself, you’re going to hide behind “the ‘N’ word’ and make us say nigga in our heads.  Enuff already with “the ‘N’ word.’  How is he ignorant – because you didn’t like the song.  It was about his relationship with the man who was dating his mother.  I suppose you have greater insight into that, than Kanye does himself.
