Update Of The Day: Kanye West

    A couple of days ago we posted a seemingly harmless lost track from West's MBDTF sessions entitled "Mama's Boyfriend" or "Mama's Boy" as it's being referred to in some circles. West recently told Billboard that the track was not an official product of his, and he was deeply offended by the falsified placement of his vocals on a track he did not produce, intend or endorse.

    The full statement:

    "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."

    Now that we listen to it more closely, it does seem a little too out of character for West's recent sonic preoccupations. It's a pretty decent fake of a West produced track, but apparently, really messes with the intent West had with his original idea. Hard to guess it was falsified after it was posted up to the G.O.O.D. Music blog, but so it goes in the digital age.

    The bright side: "Mama's Boy(friend)" leads into "Christmas in Harlem" on my iTunes, and listening to that on a hot June day is an automatic grin. Highly recommended.
