Kanye West is not modest at all. He actually claimed that he is the smartest celebrity in the word. Kanye West made these statements in the case in which he is accused of hitting a photographer. 

“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,” Kanye West said. The rapper is accused of beating a photographer and smashing his camera. 

The revelations were made by TMZ. The publication indicated that Kanye actually compared the fight with paparazzi with the 1960s civil rights movement. “I mean in the ’60s people used to hold up ‘Die N****r’ signs when my parents were in the sit-ins also… I equate it to discrimination. I equate it to inequalities,” the star claimed, explaining that persistent paparazzi are actually a problem for many celebrities. 

 “I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f**king dealt with. I’m not Britney Spears. 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,” Kanye West went to add. The star said that he will not let the paparazzi invade his life. 

The case dates back to March, when Kanye allegedly attacked a photographer in Los Angeles. The rapper pleaded no contest to the charges. He was placed on probation, for 24 months. Moreover, the star was ordered to attend 24 private therapy sessions, which will try to help him deal with anger problems. The singer will also attend 250 hours of community service.
