Kanye West

Explains Airport Attack

'My Grandpa Was Dying'

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.

He is either an extremely violent person, who goes into fits of rage sometimes but then has moments where he is a nice dude. Or, the paparazzi really antagonize the **** out of him and only show the parts where he completely loses his **** and make him seem like a bigger ass than he is.

God this guy is nothing but a loser and no wonder he is with that slut, Kim, as they both think they are wonderful but really they are both nothing but trash. Lock him up and when they do let us see who is next in Kim's bec.

Well, sorry to hear about anyone dying, dude, but that don't give you the right to attack anyone.

KIM WORE A LOVELY GRAY DRESS (Dailymail).However, her huge saggy, old lady boobs, massive hips & camel hump rear, completely distorted the line of the dress.She really can't carry off that kind of look.Of course,TMZ fails again at posting ANY photos of the K women. Why is that TMZ?

How about all his rants and raves and the four other brawls he has been in. How many Grandpa's does he have?

His mother was an English professor, so why is he going out of his way to sound inarticulate? It's not as if he didn't grow up speaking proper English at home.

Hates the Paps but, doesn't mind using them in his Damage Control mode. The DA and Judge are not stuipid, they will see through it.

Kanye now explains the reason he beat up the photographer --- was because his grandfather was dying. So - Kanye - you tried to KILL the photographer? You're just a mean, violent, loud-mouth.
