It’s been well-documented that Kanye West doesn’t love the paparazzi.

He loathes Hollywood’s invasive culture, especially when it comes to his famous family’s privacy.

TMZ has reportedly obtained the transcript from Kanye’s recent court appearance stemming from his alleged physical altercation with a cameraman back in 2013. The cameraman is suing Ye for the reported scuffle.

The leaked quotes are filled with some classic Yeezy one liners.

“I’m the smartest celebrity you’ve ever f***ing dealt with,” West reportedly said to the accuser’s lawyer Nate Goldberg. “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.”

Goldberg cited Kanye’s “Flashing Lights,” specifically the verse, “Till I get flashed by the paparazzi, damn, these N***as got me.”

Naturally, Ye wasn’t feeling the Goldberg’s point.

“You have to ask for a hall pass. You can’t just say the ‘N-word’ around me,” Kanye shot back. “It offends me because you’re a white person saying N***a.”
