Nowadays, Kanye West and airports do not go together well – see: Kanye’s current probation stemming from a scuffle with a paparazzi member at LAX – but that was not always the case.

Back in the early days of his career, West actually liked airports, a lot. One thing he didn’t like about them? His overly persistent fans.

In a recently-surfaced pilot for a show about Kanye’s travel agent, Brett Goetsch – the “ultimate travel agent to the stars,” as he refers to himself – that TMZ obtained, the rapper outlines how he gets himself out of uncomfortable situations.

His go-to move involves pretending to be on the phone. As he sarcastically explains,”People like to say really stupid things to me. OK, that’s completely politically incorrect. No, I really like being in airports. I like people walking up to me and saying shit like, ‘Are you Kanye West?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘Quit lying!’ And the whole time I’m on the phone.”

If you’re a fan of Kanye’s, you might not appreciate knowing that the rapper would likely dodge you if you tried to approach him in an airport but you would probably enjoy seeing this unfiltered look at an early Kanye – especially since the rapper is so camera-adverse today.

Sadly the reality show this was filmed for, possibly named “TNE Travel,” never aired, but we’ll always have this clip.
