Three days ago, the unreleased cut of Kanye West's song "Mama's Boyfriend" leaked and made its way around the internet. The track was supposedly part of the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions, and was left on the cutting room floor. Well, apparently that is not the case, as Universal Music is claiming that the song is "is entirely bogus and unsanctioned" as "an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West's vocal track and added their own soundbed to it."
You can read Universal Music's full statement after the jump.
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."
