Kanye West lashed out at a photographer.

In a video published by website TMZ, the rapper is heard blasting a paparazzi cameraman who professed his love for the star's work.

However, he angrily responded: ''I appreciate that but don't talk. Don't talk to me. I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know.

''Don't talk to me at all and 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.''

Kanye - whose partner Kim Kardashian gave birth to their daughter North West last month - then appeared to grab for the photographer's camera after he asked about the star's music career.

Five years ago, the 36-year-old musician was arrested for smashing up TMZ equipment at LAX.

He has recently spoken out about doing everything to protect the privacy of his daughter.

He previously said: ''I would do anything to protect my child or my child's mother ... Well, I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby.''
