LOS ANGELES (Web Desk) – American rapper artist Kanye West has asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion.

The 38-year-old rapper – who claimed at the weekend he is $53 million in debt – 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’.

He tweeted: “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas.

“…after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.(sic)”


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 Mark to help him.

He wrote: “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw…

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)”

And Kanye – who debuted his ‘Life of Pablo’ album at his Yeezy fashion show in New York last week – claimed he is “this generation’s Disney” who needs the “resources” to make the world “a better place”.

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”.
