Yeezy is the man who’s devoted his life to “trying to make dope shit for the world.” He’s also the man who was accused of beating up a paparazzo back in July of last year.
TMZ got a hold of the transcript from the legal case where Kanye lets the prosecuting lawyer know that he is “the smartest celebrity you’ve ever fucking dealt with.” When asked where he lives, he responds with “Earth.”
From then on, it’s pure Yeezus theatre, with Kanye hitting the paparazzo’s lawyer with this one: “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.”
Kanye also likens the civil rights movements of the ’60s with his struggle with the paparazzi today as it equates to discrimination and inequalities.
His final words: “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.”
