Kanye West

Explains Airport Attack

'My Grandpa Was Dying'

10/11/2013 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news



Dear paparazzi: It may be okay to talk to Kanye West again ... at least based on this incredible video of KW chatting up photogs at a gas station.

What's amazing is that Kanye not only talked to a few paps ... he joked with them while filling up his Lambo today in Calabasas -- and then launched into an explanation for why he went ballistic on that photog at LAX back in July.

Yeezy claims Daniel Ramos set him up by antagonizing him ... and it just happened to go down right after he learned his grandfather was dying. 

Kanye's been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft for the incident.

But there's a ton more he talks about ... like being fearful his daughter will have to deal with the media frenzy that follows him. He even tells the paps, "We in this together."

Gotta say ... it's the coolest we've seen Ye in a long time -- especially considering there was one jerk photog there trying to get under his skin.

So according to Kanye West it's perfectly acceptable to beat the crap out of someone after you receive bad news.

Who watched him on Jimmy Kimmel? I knew he was crazy before the interview and now I'm more sure than ever. The self proclaimed genius has total crazy eyes! Oh and he thinks his human urinal baby momma deserves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

I think his bi-polar azz needs to be medicated. Poor kid North has to grow up in the most dysfunctional family in history bypassing even the Jacksons.

OK, so he used the old "my grandpa was dying" excuse...but what about the PREVIOUS TIMES....was his kitty dying, or was his grandma dying, or his aunt lulu that he hadn't seen in 23 years, or his next door neighbor's aunt's cousin's sister's boyfriend's stepmother's father?

Sorry 3 months goes by and you feel NOW is the time to "explain"
