VIDEO: Kanye West breaks up an airport fight with a hug

The more you see of Kanye West, the tougher it is not to warm to him.

If you ignore the occasional Twitter rant, the rapper and producer often just seems like a regular guy with people's best interests at heart.

This came to the fore again at an airport, where he stopped a row between two paparazzi descending into a full-blown brawl.

This footage from TMZ shows West calming down the two perpetrators, who were trying to get a good shot of the musician during an impromptu interview and autograph session, and even getting one of them to hug it out.

He's clearly mellowed, given that less than three years ago he was getting into a very heated dispute with a paparazzo which resulted in a charge of battery - this was good to see.
