Dog It Can’t Be: Was Kanye West Stealing Printers From Office Max?

No way, Jose. But in a recent deposition, records show that Kanye West was charged with a felony way back in 2000 for stealing printers from Office Max, where he was employed. Kanye claims it was a simple case of racial profiling. This is one wild and crazy article.

TMZ dug up the story and explain:

says he has been racially profiled by cops  … arrested and charged with stealing from printers from an OfficeMax back in 2000 … all because of his braids.

We got hold of Kanye’s deposition in a case filed by a photog who Kanye assaulted at LAX. In the depo, Kayne admits to being convicted of a felony … and then recalls the incident where he says, “I was racially profiled for having a white T-shirt and braids.”

Kanye says cops snagged him for allegedly stealing printers at the Illinois OfficeMax. He gets sketchy, not explaining where cops found him, but he does say at the time he was already a successful music producer.

Kanye suggests cops even doctored the evidence to frame him, saying, “I was driving a white Ford Expedition. When I saw the police report, they crossed out where it said ‘Cream Ford Explorer.'”

In the depo, filed in court by his lawyer
, Kanye says he believes he was convicted of a felony but says it was actually “a mistaken identity for stealing some printers from OfficeMax after I was a platinum producer.”

The opposing lawyer responded, “I’m sure that wasn’t in the charge that you were … a platinum producer.” Kanye fired back, “Yeah, I believe so. I think that’s what — I think that’s what — where America had me at that time for having braids.”
