Kanye West – Mama’s Boyfriend (Unreleased)


Q-Tip played a snippet of Mama’s Boyfriend, a track that didn’t make Kanye’s MBDTF, in his RBMA lecture. Here’s a minute and a half of it.

We watched the Q-Tip lecture a few days ago and thought we’d give the track excerpt its own precipice because it was dope enough. During his talk at the RBMA NYC 2013, Q-Tip played a short snippet of Mama’s Boyfriend, a track that missed the cut for Kanye’s MBDTF. A slightly different version called “Mama’s Boy” has been on the internet for a few years, albeit in pitched form with a more developed beat. However, this version shows Kanye on his “old style” flow and lyrics game, in contrast to his current rhetoric. I won’t lie, I went a little crazy for it.

Stream it below. Please make this a full-length track.
