Kanye West Lashes Out At Lawyer During Deposition As Trial For Theft Charges Against Him Begins



Excerpts from Kanye West’s deposition, in relation to his paparazzi battery case, have been released online by TMZ.
The rapper, who was charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft after lashing out at the photographer last year, made his typically startling comments when responding to the paparazzo’s lawyer, Nate Goldberg. 

According to the site, Kanye said: 

 
‘I'm the smartest celebrity you've ever f***ing dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears.’
The 37-year-old rapper was clearly unimpressed during the exchange as he reported told the lawyer: ‘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.’

The Bound 2 hitmaker also drew a parallel between the African-American citizens fighting for civil rights in the 60s and celebrities fighting for their right to privacy.
Kanye claimed that he felt it was a similar levels of ‘discrimination’ and ‘inequalities’ being faced by stars today.

He 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.’
TMZ adds that the full deposition is ‘riddled’ with Kanye West’s sarcasm as the rapper gave the reply, ‘Earth’, which Goldberg asked where he lives.

Kanye West was charged for his attack on the paparazzo at LAX in July 2013 and the musician will be arraigned on October 10th. The theft charge relates to the rapper reportedly attempting to take the photographer’s camera during the incident. The photographer, Daniel Ramos, who was also attacked by Britney Spears with an umbrella in 2007, was taken to a hospital following the assault and told authorities that he wanted to press charges against West.

During his recent rants at Wireless Festival, Kanye revealed his lashed out at the photographer because he had just found out his grandfather was going to pass away.
