Hip-Hop Rumors: The Reason Why Kanye Doesn't Smile

When’s the least time you saw Kanye West smile? College Dropout days? Jk.

But its very rare to catch the oh-so-serious rapper cracking even a small grin these days.

Kanye detailed why he doesn’t smile during a speech at the Daily Front Row’s inaugural Fashion Los Angeles Awards.

E! News reports:

““Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything,” West said. “I looked at all these people’s photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren’t smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile…When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.””

So there you have it. Kim isn’t making him so unhappy that he can’t bare to smile.
