Kanye West has voiced his frustration about the unauthorized release of his track “Mama’s Boyfriend“.

Upset that the song leaked, the Grammy Award Winning rapper explained in a statement issued by Island Def Jam that the version people heard on the internet, is “entirely bogus and unsanctioned.”

The label sent out a warning shot message today to any persons involved in the leakage. (So does this mean the blogs are all suspects?)

Check out what the label had to say after the break:

“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 label clarified before adding that such act “violates the artist’s creative intentions.”

They elaborated, “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.”
