When it comes to community service, you'd expect a bit of volunteering at a homeless shelter or possibly litter collection. But Kanye West cannot be expected to do any old community service, oh no siree. 

The Black Skinhead rapper is spending his 250 hours of community service, for attacking a paparazzi, by teaching fashion at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College where he's already made three appearances in the last six weeks.

His latest lecture was three hours long and touched on designers and his personal experience within the fashion industry. A lucky fan even got to pose with "Prof" West. 

The rapper has some serious fashion on his resume after his collaborations with Nike, Louis Vuitton and A.P.C. He also very loudly declared that Fendi stole his leather jogging pant idea. And then there's his one-man revamp of new wife Kim Kardashian's style. 

So it's not a surprise that Kanye's spending his probation teaching students about fashion. Besides, an orange vest isn't really his style, anyway.
