Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West was granted a one month delay for his pre-trial hearing which stems from his arrest at Los Anglees International Airport last year.

According to reports, the request was approved last Friday (September 18).

Kanye is being prosecuted for breaking a paparazzi camera at LAX on September 11, 2008. The L.A. City Attorney has charged him with 3 misdemeanors -- vandalism, theft and battery. We've learned last Friday, Kanye's lawyer, Blair Berk, went to the judge and won a delay -- a pre-trial hearing was set for this month but it's now pushed back until October 23. (TMZ)

The rapper has received multiple push-backs in his case dating back to mid-summer.
