The Bound 2 rapper must teach students as part of his community service.

Kanye West is teaching fashion students at different colleges as part of the community service he has to undertake for allegedly striking a photographer.

The Bound 2 rapper spoke to pupils at the LA Trade Technical College for three hours yesterday (June 23) in a lesson about his experience in the fashion industry.

The controversial star struck a plea deal in March over allegations he hit photographer Daniel Ramos in an unprovoked attack last summer - his deal meant he didn't have to plead guilty to misdemeanour charges of battery against the paparazzo.

According to TMZ, it was Kanye's third visit to the college in six weeks and he has been speaking at various colleges as part of his 250-hour community service sentence. The 37-year-old is also expected to undergo anger management counselling as part of the deal.

Kanye West and Pharrell Williams will be performing in Dublin's Marlay Park next Wednesday, July 2.
