Kanye’s Final Version of ‘Mama’s Boyfriend’ Leaks

Last summer, Kanye West dropped by the Facebook headquarters to preview material from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, where he debuted a rhyme titled “Mama’s Boyfriend.” That cut never made it onto the finished product, but a final, produced version has just hit the web. Hear that track, and revisit West’s a cappella Facebook performance below (via Dub on the Rocks).

West delivers a swaggering, soul-heavy banger, packed with sped-up female vox plus horn and string samples. But, of course, it’s West’s lyrics that shine and the MC slays with his tale of being a five-year-old in “supa dupa fly” “Superman pajamas” as he witnesses his single mom getting pursued by all manner of male suitors. “I don’t like you nigga,” he raps. “If I was old enough, I’d fight you nigga. I wanna run over you with my bike, you nigga!” Awwww!.
