Here’s Kanye West’s Deposition After Paparazzi Attack Case, And It’s Epic

As you might remember, Kanye West was charged with misdemeanors of criminal battery and attempted grand theft after allegedly attacking a paparazzo in July 2013. While he pled not guilty, and was eventually sentenced to two years probation in March, TMZ has now obtained portion of the transcript from Ye’s deposition regarding his 2013 paparazzi assault case. While talking to the photographer's lawyer, Nate Goldberg, Kanye went into attack mode. In addition to claiming that he's "the smartest fucking celebrity you've ever dealt with. I'm not Britney Spears," he said:

"I'm in the business of trying to make dope shit 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."

Kanye seemed to get pretty offended when Goldberg brought up some lyrics to “Flashing Lights” and recited them word by word, including N-word.

“You have to ask for a hall pass,” he said according to the report. “You can’t just say the N-word around me. It offends me because you’re a white person saying ‘n***a.’”

He then started to lash out in the name of all celebrities, comparing the fight for civil rights in the 1960s to the challenges that celebrities face trying to maintain their privacy.

"I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities. 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."

Also, when asked about his residence, he replied, “Earth.”

    Niggas should know you do not fuck with Kanye. That nigga could rhetort with fucking gibberish and still make your ass look stupid, just straight "Goo Goo Gaga Moo Moo Jaja," and make your articulate ass look retarded. So many people bash on and say he's a POS and his music sucks and this nigga Ye shits on their response by getting MBDTF as #1 album on GQ as well as a rave reviews from every site. Same with Yeezus. Same with every album this nigga has made. [Insert "You do not simply...fuck with Kanye" meme.]

    Generally speaking, Kanye is a dickhead...but he makes some valid points here. The whole "hall pass" thing is irrelevant to what he's actually saying. Paparazzi only exist because there are people who don't really have anything else going on so they watch celebrities and as a result, paparazzi can make pretty good money doing it...but be real, if celebrity news didn't ever exist, we wouldn't miss it.

    I still think he should take a more modest approach and drop the arrogance. Because I think arrogance is going to bring him down just as quick as it took him up.

    What a total fucking idiot Kanye is. He may make good music, but he has the intelligence of a 4 year old. The problem is that a huge mass of people who are also dumb as hell hold him as an idol, making him the king of morons. Seriously, the people around him who have to deal with him must constantly be rolling their eyes, thinking 'just make the idiot happy so we can get some of his money'.

    NIGGER PLEASE!

    I have had family members die in a crash.

    I had 4 of my family die in 1 crash on the way to family vacation where we were all waiting because of a drunk driver.

    Was I praising the killer or saying the victims were in the wrong? To think that just because I have a funny name and some black man doing karate as my picture doesn't make me any less of a human than you are
