Kanye was ordered to anger management back in March for the case in which he’s accused of beating a photog and smashing his camera. According to the deposition transcript TMZ got their hands on, Kanye explains the situation to lawyer Nate Goldberg:
“I’m in the business of trying to make dope s**t 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.”
Goldberg then referenced Ye’s song “Flashing Lights” by quoting from the song,”Till I get flashed by the paparazzi, damn, these ni**as got me.” Kanye then interrupted him:
“You have to ask for a hall pass. You can’t just say the ‘n’ word around me. It offends me because you’re a white person saying ‘ni**a.”
“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.”
At one point in the conversation, Kanye drops a bomb: “I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f***ing dealt with. I’m not Britney Spears.”
Ouch. Klassic sarkastic Kanye.
