Kanye West Asks Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg for $1 Billion
Paging Mark Zuckerberg. After finally releasing his album The Life of Pablo and performing on “SNL” over the weekend, Kanye West returned to Twitter on Sunday morning (Feb. 14) to announce that he needs the Facebook founder’s help in the form of $1 billion.
“Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas,” tweeted ‘Ye. “After realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.”
The pleading didn’t stop there. “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw,” Yeezy begged later in the day. “You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house… World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me.”
West is requesting Zuckerberg’s assistance because he currently lacks the resources to help him achieve his Walt Disney-sized goals.
“I’m this generation’s Disney,” he explained. “I want to bring dope shit to the world…I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can…Mark, I am publicly asking you for help…one of the coolest things you could ever do is to help me in my time of need and I will always respect you for that and the world will love you…I know I can make the world a better place… I have done the impossible … I retook the throne of rap… I beat the fashion game.”
‘Ye didn’t stop there. He also put out the call to Google co-founder Larry Page.
“hey Larry Page I’m down for your help too,” he added. “All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists…you’d rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country…if you want to help… help me…I promise I’m going to make the world dope…. all I do is make shit dope #facts…All you guys had meetings with me and no one lifted a finger to help.”
On Saturday (Feb. 13), the G.O.O.D. Music chief revealed that he is $53 million in personal debt. “I’m proud of every dime of debt I got,” he tweeted.
