Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is not done letting paparazzi know what’s on his mind and has gone off on a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.
In new footage, Yeezy is shown telling a pap not to open his mouth and to leave his friends alone.
Kanye West just lashed out at a TMZ camera guy … tearing into our photog for daring to speak at LAX … simply ’cause he’s an egomaniac who thinks he’s bigger than the Constitution. Kanye — who calls himself Yeezus — had arrived to the airport, when our photog tried to tell the rapper how much he loves his music. But before he could even finish his sentence, Kanye got right in our guy’s face … manhandled the camera — and started making demands like a Fascist dictator. “Don’t talk … don’t talk to me … I don’t wan’t to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know … and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows … don’t talk to themselves .. DON’T TALK EVER AGAIN.” Our guy dared to open his mouth … and said how pumped he was for a possible sequel to the Jay-Z/Kanye album … and that’s when Kanye charged back at our photog and ripped at our camera.

Memorable footage of Yeezy walking into a Hollywood street sign surfaced across the Internet in May.
Kim Kardashian‘s maternal instincts are already kicking in! The seven-months-pregnant reality star, 32, was house-hunting with beau Kanye West in Bel-Air, Calif. on Friday, May 10, when the rapper suddenly walked straight into a street pole. Dressing her growing baby bump in a black lace cardigan paired with a side braid and chandelier earrings, the expectant mother immediately showed her nurturing side — going to the rapper’s side and kissing his forehead while he seemed to wince from the klutzy mishap.

Immediately following the accident, the Chicago native went off on nearby photographers.
An angry West clasped his hand to his head and bent over in pain. “You OK Kanye?” photographers can be heard asking, in footage of the incident. West briefly shouts at a photog to “stop taking f—ing pictures, man,” before it appeared that he calmed down and walked away. But this being Kanye West, after all, video recently surfaced showing the hothead stayed true to form and did launch into an expletive-filled tirade against another photographer, who meekly protested, “I just got here.” That photographer even tries to offer an olive branch, saying, “If you want me to leave, I’ll leave, Kanye.” (NY Post)
Around mid-June, Mr. West detailed his issues with paparazzi.
“Right now it’s a fight against the separation and constant dumbing down of culture, and I’m standing in the middle of it. So if you know what people say are my lowest moments, those moments where I sat and saw them try to dumb down culture, and I would not allow it to happen on my clock. [Applause] So when I used to go to fashion shows with my boys and we’d be eight deep, it was almost like a civil rights, like a sit-in. They wouldn’t even let us in. They had no idea what rap would mean to this world, what rap would mean to the art world. Before the Kendrick Lamars and the A$AP Rockys, it was Kanye West in a hotel room at the Le Maurice getting a ‘no, no, no, no’ to every single fashion show. But I thought it was so important to get close to the artists who worked so hard on making a usable form of art–like this furniture right here, like everything that is in all these rooms that inspire us so much–and I fight in my position of being a very commercial celebrity boyfriend, I fight to push culture forward every chance I get. And I only frown because paparazzi ask me dumbass shit all the time, and I think about changing the world, and I think about what I can do to make things better. And, without further ado, I want to play you guys my new album. It’s called Yeezus.” (The Daily Beast)
