Kanye West - Kanye West Vows To Prosecute Over Song Leak

Kanye West has vowed to "identify and prosecute" whoever is responsible for leaking one of his new tracks on the internet.
A song called Mama's Boy emerged on the web this week (beg13Jun11), but West is adamant the track is nothing like the finished product as it has been put together by editing his vocals on top of another artist's music.
He has now released a statement through his Def Jam record label calling Mama's Boy one of the "most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written" and threatening to take action over the leak.
The statement reads, "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... An unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West's vocal track and added their own sound bed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track... 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."
