Authorities are investigating Kanye West for allegedly punching an autograph seeker, and TMZ obtained video of the man unconscious on the street while Kanye rages at people who appear to work for him.

The alleged attack occurred shortly after 3 a.m. in Downtown Los Angeles, outside the Soho Warehouse – and Ye was enraged.

When the video begins, he is screaming at a woman who is desperately attempting to calm him. Additionally, she states,  “I am your family,” but he storms away in rage. The woman is believed to be Ye’s cousin.

According to witnesses, this occurred just seconds after Kanye allegedly punched the man times in the head and the autograph seeker fell, hitting his head on the ground.

According to TMZ sources, Kanye asked the small group of people outside the building not to take pics and said something about how they don’t comprehend what he’s going through at the moment.

When someone responded that it’s normal because we all go through family issues, Ye allegedly unloaded the two punches.

Kanye was reportedly headed downtown following a late-night session in a Hollywood recording studio – and a separate video reveals he was already enraged when he left around 2:30 a.m.

Ye was yelling at two women about something… it’s difficult to discern, but they appear to be the same women who were with him downtown at the time of the alleged attack.

The reported victim turned down medical treatment at the scene, but we’re told he’s now being checked out at an urgent care facility and as TMZ previously reported, the LAPD is investigating Kanye for battery.
