This is something that I never thought I would see, Kanye West chopping it up and joking around with the paparazzi in L.A.

On Friday, while filling up his Lambo near his Callabasas home, instead of snapping on the paparazzi, Ye chopped it up with them.

While chatting it up with the photogs, Kanye explained why he went off on the photographer at LAX in July. Ye stated that the photographer, Daniel Ramos, set him up by antagonizing him, and it went down right after he learned that his grandfather was dying, so he wasn’t in the mood to play.

Kanye is currently facing charges of criminal battery and attempted grand theft for the LAX incident.

Watch the footage, via TMZ, of Kanye’s latest “run-in” with the paparazzi and hear what else he has to say, below:
