Kanye West to Sue Over "Mama's Boyfriend" Leak
Rappers sics search team on violator
Kanye West (pictured with Mother, Donda West) isn't too happy about his unreleased song "Mama's Boyfriend" being leaked to the Internet, so he plans on siccing a search team on the culprit and then taking him or her to court.
A statement from his representatives reveals that the leak is not an official song, but rather stolen vocals from the song placed over another beat:
"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."
Everyone has been waiting on this song since he performed it at the Facebook offices last year. Sounds like somebody is in big trouble.
