Kanye West: I'm From CHICAGO! Step Off, Photographers!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you watched Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, the primary takeaway was that he buried the hatchet with the host and ended their rap feud.

The subtexts? 1) Kanye has a high opinion of himself and loves to hear himself talk; 2) He has no intention of extending an olive branch to the paparazzi.

Seriously. Check out this epic rant to close out the interview:

'Ye made it clear he will continue to defend his family and fight photographers with force if they cross him - pretty brazen for a guy facing criminal battery charges.

He claims he acts in self-defense. The D.A. sees it differently.

Prosecutors want to use video of West's greatest "hits" against the paps as proof that his inclination is to attack first, ask questions later ... or not at all.

The following quote may have thrown gasoline on the fire:

"I should be respected and such when I walk on the street ... Never think I’m not from Chicago for one second ... I understand you gotta get your money."

"It's hard out here… [but] it’s a lack of decency."

Kanye is basically saying that while he may be banging Kim Kardashian and wearing pre-ripped Ralph Lauren jeans ... he's totally hard! From CHICAGO!

He's also a creative genius. Just FYI.
