Kanye Is $53M In Debt – Begs Tech Billionaires For Cash On Twitter



Kanye West may be wildly successful, but is he stone broke? Well, he tweeted Saturday that he’s $53 million in “personal debt” and asked his 18.7 million Twitter fans to “Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart,” Sky News reports. Kanye didn’t go into details, but has admitted to losing about $16 million through his Yeezy clothing line. “I was trying to play a sport that’s a billionaire sport,” he said at the 2015 BET Honors show, Vibe reported last year. “It’s not a millionaire sport and I’m proud of the debt. I don’t care about somebody’s Ghost (Phantom) or somebody’s house. I care about my vision.”

Kanye made the latest confession before going onstage at Saturday Night Live to preview his new album, The Life of Pablo—which infamous pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli apparently tried to buy for $10 million. Once the record was released, CNBC reports, Shkreli tweeted that he had been defrauded somehow after paying West with bitcoin. As for West, he’s rumored to be worth more than $100 million and his wife Kim Kardashian almost $50 million, TMZ reports. “Dude needs a good Kickstarter campaign,” says the gossip site.

Cut to this weekend…


On Sunday, Kanye put forth a new line of financial thinking: that Mark Zuckerberg should really help him out. “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas,” he tweeted, continuing with: “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw…” and: “I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house…”

His tweets go on to address what he could do if only he had the cash: “I’m this generation’s Disney… I want to bring dope shit to the world… I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can…” And he’s apparently an equal-opportunity borrower: “hey Larry Page I’m down for your help too,” he then tweeted, before turning from flattery to gentle digs: “you’d rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country… All you guys had meetings with me and no one lifted a finger to help…” Mashable points out it’s not a complete shot in the dark. Kanye “actually knows Zuckerberg (sort of),” by way of a performance the rapper gave at Facebook in 2010. Oh, and Monday probably isn’t Zuck’s bday, which Mashable believes is May 14.

Read the tweets for yourself:

Kanye should probably hit up the Kardashians for some money if he’s so desperate for cash.

Oh god please! I hope he’s on the verge of a charlie sheen style breakdown. He’s nutty like squirrel turds, and NO…he’s not really talented. Sure, he’s got a talent, but no more than literally billions of other people on the planet. Saying “I’m special” doesn’t make it true, but for some reason kanye has fooled a lot of people who like rhyming words.

I have nothing but bad wishes for Kanye. I hope the universe crushes him slowly and in creative and surprising ways so that he doesn’t become inured to the pain.
