Anti-paparazzi soapbox preacher Kanye West has revealed that his father was actually a member of the photo-taking class. In a deposition for Kanye’s physical confrontation with a paparazzi — for which he’s currently doingcommunity service — the rapper talked about how his dad Ray West used to snap people’s pictures, according to a transcript obtained by The Daily Mail. “My father was a paparazzo himself,” he told the prosecutor. “My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor.”Among Ray West’s subjects: Ronald Reagan and Maya Angelou. Of course, that kind of portrait-taking seems far off from the swarming photogs that have become the wrath of West’s Yeezus tour rants. But, in Ye’s mind, not all paparazzi are bad. (radio.com)
