Kanye West performs extra community service

KANYE West has received a glowing review from the Dean at Los Angeles Trade Technical College after voluntarily performing an extra 12 hours of community service.

The 38-year-old rapper, who was ordered to complete 250 hours of work at Los Angeles Trade Technical College after allegedly attacking photographer Daniel Ramos and damaging his camera outside LAX airport in July 2013, reportedly received a glowing review from the college's Dean at a court hearing on Tuesday after spending a total of 262 hours teaching fashion design students.

The 'New Slaves' hitmaker's lawyer, Blair Berk, presented a letter to the judge from the Dean, which stated: "The contribution of the hands-on community service Mr. West has completed with our school has been of great benefit to our students and program."

He also revealed Kanye, who is married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, dedicated more of his time to the educational facility than he was legally required to do, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

The star returned to the facility May to give an inspiring speech to graduates at its commencement ceremony.

Kanye, who was initially charged with misdemeanour battery, was placed on two years probation and also ordered to undergo anger management sessions after striking a plea deal in March 2014, following the incident.

While he is still on informal probation, the attack will be permanently erased from his record if he continues to stay out of trouble.
