New track from Kanye West – Mama’s Boyfriend

I love the Twitter. How else would I have found out about “Mama’s Boyfriend”? It’s unclear to me if this is a leftover from the My Dark and Twisted Fantasy sessions, or if it’s a new track. Apparently, these are the verses he was spitting, as they say, when he was standing on a table at Facebook last year. It’s a song about being raised by a single mom, not liking her boyfriends, and the irony of becoming one of those boyfriends as an adult. My favorite line: “You walked in our lives, I was only five / Superman pajamas, I was super duper fly!”

Consequence of Sound has the audio:

Kanye West – “Mama’s Boyfriend”

It stands with the best of the work on My Dark and Twisted Fantasy. Give it a listen.
