Kane West Released From Jail Working On New Upcoming Album
Just a day after being released from jail following his run-in with the paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport, Kanye West is already speaking out.
"We back in the lab!!!" he wrote. "I'm cool with the paparazzi. This guy wasn't cool. I gotta work now... I'll rant later!"
TMZ reported that the rapper is now in Hawaii, where his blog post implies he is back to work on his upcoming album, 808's and Heartbreak, which is set to be released December 16.
On Thursday afternoon, West and his road manager, Don Crowley, were released from the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Division on $20,000 bail following their arrests that morning. Both men were charged with felony vandalism, stemming from an incident at LAX that involved members of the paparazzi, according to a spokesperson for the airport's public-relations office.
According to police, West and Crowley were waiting for a flight to Honolulu when they were met by a photographer and videographer, who started taking their photos. An altercation ensued, and the cameras of both paparazzi were damaged by West and Crowley.
