Earlier this week, La Loca brought you the leaked [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] track Mama’s Boyfriend. Well, according to Island Def Jam, Ye was not happy about the leak at all. AND…it’s not even an official track.
In a statement appearing on Rolling Stone.com, this is what they had to say:
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.
The track which never made it to the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy CD release, was initially previewed by West at Facebook world headquarters last July.
Warning: Video contains EXPLICIT language.
