Rapper Kanye West has asked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to give him USD 1 billion to fund his “genius” ideas.
The 38-year-old rapper, who earlier claimed he was USD 53 million in debt, in a bizarre set of tweets appealed to the Facebook founder to invest in his “ideas” and thinks he is worth the money as he is the “greatest artist of all time,” reported Female First.
“Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas,” the rapper first tweeted.
“...after realising he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.(sic),” West wrote in another tweet.
The “All Day” hitmaker, who has children North, two, and Saint, two months, with wife Kim Kardashian West, went on to urge his followers to contact Zuckerberg to help him.
“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by tomorrow... 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...(sic)”
West, who debuted his “Life of Pablo” album at his Yeezy fashion show in New York last wee, claimed he is “this generation’s Disney” who needs the “resources” to make the world “a better place”.
He wrote, “I’m this generation’s Disney... 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 sI 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...(sic)”
The ‘Gold Digger’ rapper also asked Google co-founder Larry Page for financial assistance, insisting helping him would be more beneficial than “opening up one school in Africa”.
His latest Twitter rant comes after he appealed to fans to pray for him to “overcome” his financial difficulties.
