“I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f*cking dealt with. I’m not Britney Spears.”

A transcript of Kanye’s deposition in the case surrounding the beating a TMZ photogagrapher, smashing his camera in the attack. In it, Kanye explains to plantiffs attorney, Nate Goldberg, “”I’m in the business of trying to make dope shit 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.”

Here are some highlights:

Goldberg grills Kanye about his song, “Flashing Lights,” — a rant against the paparazzi. Goldberg quotes from the song, “Till I get flashed by the paparazzi, damn, these ni**as got me.”

At that point Kanye interrupts, “You have to ask for a hall pass. You can’t just say the ‘n’ word around me.” adding, “It offends me because you’re a white person saying ‘ni**a.'”

Kanye says there’s a parallel between blacks fighting for civil rights in the ’60s and celebs fighting for theirs today: “I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die Nigger’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also.” Goldberg asks if he equates the struggle of blacks in the past with celebrities today and Kanye says, “Yes, 100 … I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities.”

Kanye goes on, “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.”

  1. Rich black satanic celebs face the same discrimination as blacks in the 50s and 60s fighting for civil rights?

    Maybe he should read the Charlie Sheen story from yesterday ..
    This guy shouldn’t be allowed to speak out loud.

      • I highly doubt he ever saw a sign telling him to “die N”, why pretend to relate?
        its ok for Europeans to say the word, I guess.. it’s not as if Europeans started slavery or anything…

    • Kanye goes on, “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.”
      This is exactly what his UGLY ASS is doing! He’s going to ruin his career just like most celebs because they let their HEAD GET BIG & forget that they’re HOES! Gold Diggers! And their fans are their TRICKS! Paying them to keep them FED! I’m not a trick of his; I’m a DeBarge TRICK! LOL!

      • His career was over when he ruined that Taylor Swift award.
        How dare he?! Anyways ppl looked at him differently after that.
        We were with the George Bush comment, but that was 10 yrs ago. Hes stepping into Eddie Kane territory now..

        A Debarge trick? That’s great! I’m a Sade trick! Ill be her King of Sorrow!!

  2. Doesn’t he know his “wife” and her pimp mama phone the paps every chance they get??? Don’t want to be photographed then move to Europe or go buy an island somewhere and hide and shut the hell up; people out here have real problems like no food, disease and lack of opportunity and he’s crying about being photographed. I’m done.

  3. She need to stop! I am sick of her and most people have gotten tired of her antics. hay anyone see her wearing Ricardo suit jacket like she is Ricardo’s bitch. yeah he is gay and they are getting it in. I cant stand her and her gurl friends (The Kartrashians) Kanye is nothing but a white man’s punk ass bottom bitch queen.She is more of a joke, entertainment now.

    • PREACH. She’s a SELL OUT wearing the CONFEDERATE FLAG the same flag they lynched our ancestors with. Yeh KANYE/SHE is a punk ass bottom bitch queen cosign. White man’s bed wench, sambo sellout.

  4. I seen the picture you are talking about. they are outside and they both have on suits but Koonye has on over his white suite Ricardo’s blue suite jacket. You can tell its R.T.’s jacket because it matches his pants and is too big for Koonye.

  5. Once again, his programming is splintering. He said Nigger was his word, he owns it. So what’s wrong with someone repeating your word , your lyrics to you?

  6. These Hollywood hickory dickory n1gga are sellout and coon include mr big chipmunk west!!

    there is no way you can be pro black and still be f*cking a white person it doesn’t work like that. either your pro black or
    or a pro sellout/coon/uncle tom you can’t serve both masters at the same time!! is impossible and hypocritical

  7. Race baiting troll, he’s so about the struggle but wants to dick ride every high end european fashion designer, typical two faced gemini fuckery tho

  8. If he’s the “smartest” celebrity, why did he marry the most brain dead, vapid and attention-seeking bitch in Hollywood? Where does he think all the paparazzi come from? You ARE the company you keep! He’s so full of sh!t.

  9. Frankly i’m tired of the queen and if he was so smart them he would realize that each time he open his mouth that he is further turning people off and killing his star power. whining little bitch. if he wasnt fameous he’d be in skinny jeans, a blouse, shades and carrying a handbag and I put everything on that. he is begging to kick that closet door open.

  10. guess everybody wantsa to see kanye as a tranny.

    since evertybodys callin g him she.

    as long as kanyes making money the industry doesn’t care how many times he whine.

    • Chris,

      Is Kanye “really” moving that many units?(I’m asking seriously) He’s one fool I never check for but I don’t believe he’s selling that much music at least in the US & as for his so called clothing line….NEVER seen it & don’t want to!

      • I don’t think there is any money in (c)rap anymore.. who’s gonna pay to hear something they can hear for free?

        It was different in the 90s when rap music was sparse, not everywhere had an urban station that played Tupac and Biggie and Wu tang round the clock.

        Now hip hop is pop music. Little kids like it. Grandmas like it. And that’s complete bs!

        • Hey Willie, “Grandmas?” Like it? Oh yes because “Grandma” of today is 30 years old. “Big Mama” do not like this “(c)-rap”. LOL!

  11. KANYE IS AN IDIOT SERVANT…HE IS PROFESSIONALLY STUPID AND I DONT RESPECT THAT BULLSHIT…FUCK HIS CONFERDERATE FLAG PROMOTING/ ALWAYS WANNA BE SEEN AND HEARD LITTLE KID ASS…KIDS IS SUPPOSED TO BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD THAT BITCH ASS NIGGA WORK FOR THE KLAN ON THE LOW AND HIS WORDS ARE TRICKS HE CARES LESS ABOUT BLACK ANYTHING WITH HIS GHETTO ASS….

  12. @ Jayde I like you and I agree with you completely. @crazychris two things son. 1. I’m not trying to make Kanye anything he was the one bouncing his ass around in a leather skirt. He is painting picture of who and what he really is. 2. like you said it comes down to money with the record companies. If he was smart then he would keep his mouth shut and focus on his craft. He is damaging his brand and turning fans off with the stupid shit he says and does and yes it will affect his music sales and therefore how much money his lable makes. He is becomming a joke and that will kill his longevity. White America views him as an Idiot, Black America is getting fed up with him and aint pumping his music like that anymore. He married Kim, got mixed up with the Kardashians and he lost his street cred. His star is fading fast.

  13. Love that pic, Jacky. :-)
    That kid does a good “Kanye.”
    Lol at everyone calling Kanye “she” and “her.” And so so so SO true about who’s ringing the paps up…yep, it’s PMK and Kim every time. Maybe some day if Kanye stops getting kicked in the booty by Riccardo’s third leg he’ll realize that.

  14. Fuck kangay azz an his beard he deserves anything that comes his way scriaficed his mother he gon burn in hell ten times over sellout trash notice how hes trash now since getting wit the kartrashians they gon drain that stupid nigga for everything he got dumb azz jay z dont even fuck wit him no more an thats saying alot.

  15. You have to have a pair of solid brass balls it write a song with the n word in the title, and then state that if a white attorney even reads the name in a depo you are offended. I mean, we aren’t talking about a white person singing the lyrics out loud in a group which includes black folks. I agree that’s inappropriate. But Kanye is so off the edge of the cliff he is beyond reason now. Again I say that I don’t think he’ll be here a whole lot longer. I think he is going to crack like an egg when a major cataclysm happens(such as when his mother passed.) If Kim were to choose to divorce him in a year or so, against his wishes, I think that could do it. I’m not joking when I say that he really needs to be on some mood stabilizers.

  16. If Ye wasn’t such a textbook Gemini I would absolutely think he has some sort of personality disorder. But, I get him. We are such assholes we don’t even realize it the majority of the time, we really and truly believe we are smarter than everyone else… first off he married to Kim which should automatically make someone a narcissist by proxy. Then he’s in love with Riccardo and can’t come out so there you go…

    • I think you called it perfectly universal. That’s about the size of it. He is stuck in a place he doesn’t want to be, but he doesn’t have the will or desire to extricate himself.

  17. What they said. But he gets half a point for tellin the lawyer he needed a hall pass. That’s classic from the negro in paree
