Kanye West to perform at Summerfest June 30, angry over 'Mama’s Boyfriend' leak

For the most part Kanye West has been out of the media for a while, hard at work on the collabo album "Watch the Throne" with Jay-Z. It may not seem like it because in Milwaukee Kanye West remains in heavy rotation. How many times have you heard "All of the Lights" today? You will be able to hear more from Kanye West come Thursday June 30, 2011 when he hits the Marcus Amphitheater stage during Summerfest along with Kid Cudi.

So much for kanye keeping quiet, it seems West is pretty upset that an unfinished track of his called "Mama's Boyfriend" made its way around the net. The song was sampled last July at Facebook's headquarters in a preview of what was up next after his "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" release. On the "Mama's Boyfriend" track, Kanye West is taking shots at a man who is trying to gain favor with Kanye in order to date his mother. As you may remember Kanye West's mother Donda West died in 2007. Kanye is not exactly happy about the leak, especially since the song is unfinished and had this to say about it via his rep.

“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.”

Kanye said when previewing the song a capella for Facebook, "It took me 32 years of my life to write it.” Here is a sample of the track you listen to here.
