Ah, another day, another rant from rapper Kanye West!
His recent diatribe wasn’t spouted on stage or in an interview, but in a deposition stemming from the case in which he’s accused of beating a photographer and smashing his camera.
West added, "We, as group of minorities here in L.A., as celebrities have to ban together to influence guys like this -- guys trying to take the picture, guys trying to get the big win, guys trying to get the check."
Kanye also stated, "I'm the smartest celebrity you've ever f**king dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears. I'm in the business of trying to make dope s**t for the world. You're in the business of representing scums and trying to make as much money as long as there's this lapse in the law."
In March, West struck a deal in the misdemeanor battery case, which took place outside LAX. Kanye pled no contest, and has been placed on a 24-month informal probation. He also agreed to 24 private therapy sessions to deal with anger management and will complete 250 hours of community service.
