Whenever Kanye West smiles, it's said that a rapper gets a record deal.
Well, look out fledging recording artists, because Yeezy was caught smiling -- at the paparazzi, no less -- on Friday while going through LAX.

In an interview at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards, West confessed that "not smiling makes him smile."
