Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West reportedly admitted previously being racially profiled for a crime from 15 years ago.
A recently discovered deposition from a 2000 OfficeMax printer-stealing case surfaced online this week.
We got hold of Kanye’s deposition in a case filed by a photog who Kanye assaulted at LAX. In the depo, Kayne admits to being convicted of a felony … and then recalls the incident where he says, “I was racially profiled for having a white T-shirt and braids.” (TMZ)

The report also claims cops arrested him for allegedly stealing printers.
Kanye suggests cops even doctored the evidence to frame him, saying, “I was driving a white Ford Expedition. When I saw the police report, they crossed out where it said ‘Cream Ford Explorer.'” In the depo, filed in court by his lawyer Shawn Holley, Kanye says he believes he was convicted of a felony but says it was actually “a mistaken identity for stealing some printers from OfficeMax after I was a platinum producer.” (TMZ)
Aside from this, ski outing pics of Kanye and celebrity wife Kim Kardashian bubbled online this week.
Heading into the weekend, KimYe hooked up with celebrity couple Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter in California.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were seen out in Los Angeles, where they apparently met up with Jay Z and Beyonce. The night out is the first time they have all been spotted publicly together since Jay Z and his wife surprisingly skipped his best friend’s Italian wedding last year. (The Daily Mail)
