Kanye West is in no mood to play nice. The new father, who has been busy simultaneously looking after baby North West with girlfriend Kim Kardashian in Los Angeles and working on new material in Paris, lashed out at paparazzi at LAX on Friday, July 12, giving one photographer a dramatic earful.

The rapper, 36, was ducking out of a black car at the curbside in a casual grey hoodie and jeans as he made his way into the airport when a photographer started calling his name, telling Yeezy that he was a big fan.

"I appreciate it, but don't talk," West responded with a deadpan expression as he tried to cover the camera lens. "I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know. And tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows."

When the photographer continued to follow West into the airport, the irritated rapper pushed the camera aside and stalked away toward his Atlanta-bound flight.

Several fellow passengers later tweeted about how West received "special treatment" boarding the Delta flight. 

The Yeezus rapper was most recently in L.A. to spend time with Kardashian, 32, and his baby daughter North West, born five weeks early on June 15.

"Kanye, Kim and North always take naps together," a source told Us Weekly about the trio. "The three of them cuddle and just hang out."
