Kanye's

$100,000 Rap Attack

On TMZ

8/7/2009 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kanye West has learned how not to make friends and influence people -- at least the people who will decide if Kanye goes to jail.

Kanye West: Click to watch
West absorbed himself in a freestyle rap Wednesday night in NYC, going off on TMZ for the "confrontation" at LAX where he smashed our camera light to the ground and his bodyguard broke a still camera last year. Kanye has been charged with criminal battery, vandalism and grand theft.

During his show he sang: "Who doesn't think it's illegal, TMZ? And I have to pay $100,000 to the photographer that said I broke his arm, but I was just breaking your f**king camera, I wasn't tryin' do you no harm."

Not only was Kanye's rant a bad move given there are charges pending .... he's also wrong. If we got a check for $100,000, it blew off the doorstep ... we haven't gotten a penny yet, and all we want is for him to fix our light. We're told the still cameraman -- who doesn't work for us -- hasn't gotten a dime either.

Kanye is a disturbed child in need of serious therapy. He is also thoroughly annoying.

Please, tmz, IS NOT SENDING ANYBODY TO JAIL, i THOUGHT HE WASN'T YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, SO HOW WOULD TMZ BE ABLE TO DICTATE WHETHER HE GOES TO JAIL OR NOT, CAUGHT IN YOUR LIE.

YOUR JUST PISSED EBCUASE kANYE IS ONE OF THE FEW CELEBRITYS NOAWDAYS THAT YOU DIDN'T "CREATE" AND WHOS IMPRESSION UPON THE PUBLIC IS BEYOND THE KIND OF COVERAGE HE GETS ON THIS LITTLE WEBSITE, MUST PISS YOU GUYS OFF IN THE OFFICE THAT NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, NO MATTER HOW MUCH HE PUBLICALLY VOCALIZES HIS DISCONTENT AND DISGUST FOR YOU, NOTHING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT HIM ON THIS WEBSITE WILL AMKE PEOPLE LIKE HIM ANYLESS OR NOT BUY HIS MUSIC.

Another Rich & Spoiled PUNK. Throw his ass in Jail for a reality Check. These so called Bigshots are nothing but Punks with $$$$$$$
Give him a jar of vaseline & 3 yrs in prison... That'll tame his Bigshot attitude.

You clowns got exactly what you deserved. TMZ sends these losers out trying to bait people and once they take the hook you get on this website and show the worst part of a picture or cam. You clowns need to be arrested. And the celebrity's foot needs to be in your ass.

What about the kids??    

This guy needs to get over himself. Pay TMZ fo rthe lamp or replace it. Didn't he recently say he was going to be the next King of Pop? (I read that and heard him state this someplace within the news media.) Who does he think he is??? NO ONE can replace Michael Jackson just as no one can replace Elvis or Princess Diana. My god let Michael rest in peace Kanye. You have some nerve, get off your high horse and do the right thing....stop be so self rightgeous.

Kanye West is a joke. He is overated and seems to think fame should bring him above the law and above criticism.

I'm surprised BARACK H OBAMA hasn't rushed to his defense and called TMZ "Stupid". TMZ: Can you send Dax or Max to the next White House press conference to get a statement about this?

ANYONE CAN TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU ARE WHOEVER THEY TO TAKE A PICTURE OF. YOU CAN USE A CAMERA ANYWHERE YOU WANT AND FILM PEOPLE WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION. HOWEVER IF IS USED IN ANY WAY YOU ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO GET PERMISSION WITH THE EXPECTION OF TMZ AND OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS

He is proof that you CAN polish a turd.
You have to plate it with gold and some blood diamonds first, but you can in fact, polish a turd.

The video shows what a ass he is. He is saying there ain't no police several times. That barf bag really thinks he is above EVERYTHING.
He is a punk who had money that he better be careful with because his reign of being somebody is going fast. I see a orange jumpsuit in his future. Good bright color for someone who is so dim in the head.
