In the clip of the encounter, which was posted by TMZ Friday, you can hear the photographer telling Yeezuz how much he loves his work.
"I appreciate that, but don't talk," the "Skinhead" singer responded. "That's fine, but dont talk to me. I don't wanna hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know."
At this point, the photographer intervenes and explains to Kanye that he's actually a field reporter.
"I said don't talk to me at all," the singer repeated. "Don't talk to anyone I know at all, and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows. Don't talk to themselves. Don't talk ever again".
Later, when the photographer failed to follow Kanye's instructions and told him how excited he was about a possible Kanye/Jay-Z album, the rapper charged back at him and tried to break his camera, much like his almost-brother-in-law Lamar Odom did to a few photographers on Thursday.
