Rapper Kanye West let loose on a paparazzo at LAX on Friday… and it was caught on tape.

Sources told TMZ that West was on his way out of the airport when he was approached by several photographers.

The eyewitness said one photog was especially aggressive and wouldn’t stop pressing even though Kanye asked him to stop. The rapper became irate and started throwing a few punches. Watch.


TMZ says paramedics and police were called to the scene.

Kanye has been out of the country since last week and recently spoke out on how much he doesn’t like the paparazzi.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the photographer wants to press charges and and the charges may be filed as felony attempted robbery and not a battery case.
