The rapper has been teaching at Los Angeles Trade Technical College
Kanye West has shared a number of photos from his community service stint, in which he is teaching a fashion class at Los Angeles Trade Technical College.
The star was sentenced to 250 hours of community service – as well as two years of probation and anger management classes – after pleading no contest to charges of criminal battery and attempted grand theft, stemming from when he attacked a photographer at LAX in July of last year. Since May of this year, reports Complex, West has been undertaking his community service, talking about the fashion industry, and now a number of photos of him at work have been shared by the teamkanyedaily Instagram account, which you can see below.
Meanwhile, Kanye West recently urged the media to “pick a new target” and criticised “sensational” reports about him and his private life. West was performing in Brisbane, Australia on September 15 when he spoke to the audience for over 15 minutes about what he perceives as a problem with news coverage in America.
“Welcome to today’s news, ladies and gentlemen,” West said. “We got Americans getting killed on TV, we have kids getting killed every week in Chicago, we have unarmed people being killed by police officers, and we have Kanye West with an ice cream cone,” he said, referencing a viral photo from 2013.
He continued by suggesting that the media wants those who do not know his music to think badly of him. “They got this thing where they want the masses, people who never even heard one of my albums, to somehow read a headline that reads negative and to think I’m a bad person or something.”
Earlier during his tour of Australia, West was reportedly admitted to hospital in Melbourne. Sources say he was suffering from a migraine. He was released from the hospital the same evening in time to play his show at the Rod Laver Arena.
