Audio: Big Boi x Little Dragon - "Mama Told Me" [Unreleased Studio Version]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Big Boi and Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon

Speaking candidly to FADER mag, Big Boi had all this to say about the label f**kery that blocked the release of his Little Dragon collabo "Mama Told Me":

Peacefrog? Unpeaceful. Little Dragon were still under contract with Peacefrog when we recorded. When they left that label and went to Universal I guess there was some bad blood going on between them two. So I guess Peacefrog felt like this was the last Little Dragon check they were gonna get. So they come in to my song that was already done and try to hijack my whole song. And I’m like, Helllll no. Wait a fucking minute! This shit is unheard of. They trying to rape me for my record that I already have. I still have that version though. You know me, I love the fans. Don’t try to tell me I can’t put it out. You know how shit leak around.

Shit do leak around...and look what leaked all over our dancing shoes this evening! Stream below and compare with the official, Kelly Rowland version here.
