Kanye Gets High ... On a Budget

4/24/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West, PharrellTMZ spies spotted Kanye West and Pharrell at LAX airport this morning ... on a Southwest flight to Tucson, Ariz.. Ding -- you are now free to lose your street cred!

Was first class booked on EVERY OTHER AIRLINE?!?!? Or, for that matter, a sweet private jet? Is that really the best Kanye's travel site could do?

Let's hope they were at least in Group A.

That Girl Amy    

Whatever, dude. I'm a U.S. Airways girl myself, but I ain't too proud to fly Southwest, too.

What the hell does anyone need a private jet for anyway?? I completely agree w/ wastin. Smart and ecomonical move on their part.

SO? And as for everyone calling him a "racist," I'm considered "white" and was not offended by his comments on live television. Racist would've been if he talked crap on a race. He talked crap on a Person he felt was racist

How refreshing to see someone who CAN fly all blinged out and chooses to behave like an average normal human being who doesn't need to feed his ego by wasting money. He just can't win with you guys at TMZ can he? If he behaves like a Diva you nail him, and if he behaves like regualar folks you nail him for that! Make up your EGO driven little minds!

Neither one of these rappers/producers are the "street cred" kind. Has anyone on your staff ever listened to their music!!! And Disgusted in Dallas, Kanye's Mom had a PHD and was a university professor and author. She didn't work for Kanye or need his money.

Whatever their reason, its nice to see celebrities fly commercial rather than private jets...the environment folks! Earth Day was just Tuesday, did we all forget? Flying in a private jet does more than four times the carbon emission damage to the environment than flying a regular commercial airline....

Great. Now Kanye is gonna start crying, and say that the white man sitting beside him, had more peanuts than he did. Or he had more leg room than him. It's all a a plot against him.
---shakes head walking away from this thread---

TMZ. Why do you bait us with stories that are just gonna anger people?

Kanye and Pharrell are in Tucson for their concert this evening at the University of Arizona. It's at McKale Center, the basketball arena where the Wildcats play.

Good for them for flying Southwest. I fly the same airline between Tucson and Los Angeles all the time, and I fly it for the same reasons Kanye and Pharrell did: convenience. It's an easy, 70 minute flight. Plus they have six of them everyday, and it's not expensive, so what's not to like.

I've seen other celebrities on those flights. Both Miraval and Canyon Ranch are located here, so celebrities come to town all the time.

Have a great concert tonight.

Good for him. I'm sick of vulgar displays of wealth from celebs. I flew Southwest every other month for about five years and my flight was late only twice. They ain't so bad.
