Chris Brown has advised Kanye West to hire a bodyguard.

The 'Fine China' hitmaker thinks the 36-year-old rapper, who is planning to press charges against a photographer for allegedly trespassing outside his Los Angeles mansion at 4am on Friday morning (27.09.13), should hire private security to avoid getting into confrontations with paparazzi.

The 24-year-old R&B star tweeted: ''I hate how the media makes us look like aggressive animals. On some real shit If those cameras on ya property that means its trespassing.

''@kanyewest hire some security or some street n****s to take care of the b******t so u not explaining Yaself

''Shit ain't cool! (sic)''

Two cameramen turned up at the 'Black Skinhead' hitmaker's home at 4am to question him about his feud with Jimmy Kimmel, stemming from the US chat show host spoofing his recent Radio 1 interview, in which Kanye claimed he was the number one rock star in the world.

The rapper told the photographers to ''shut the f**k up'' and blasted them for their tactics in a rant captured on camera.

He said: ''Don't say anything to me man. You're out in front of my house at 4am asking, 'How's it going?' It's not going good.''

Kanye, who is facing criminal battery charges stemming from a separate altercation with a different photographer, has reportedly reviewed CCTV footage and believes it proves one of the paparazzo was trespassing on his property.

Chris, who has had several run-ins with the law, was recently sentenced to a further 1,000 hours of community service for submitting bogus reports for the 1,440 hours he was originally ordered to complete as part of his probation stemming from his violent assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
