Kanye Begs Billionaires for Money, Says Africa Can Wait

Kanye Begs Billionaires for Money, Says Africa Can Wait

Read his desperate pleas to Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page.

Published February 15th

Kanye West's Twitter rants are becoming a defining part of his legacy. The rapper and designer can't seem to stop himself from posting inflammatory, eyebrow-raising and sometimes downright embarassing things on social media. His latest rant is aimed at Mark Zuckerberg and the billionaire class, who he believes aren't doing enough to support his creative genius.

After revealing that he's $53 million in personal debt (too many gold toilets?), 'Ye just came out and begged the Facebook founder and his Silicon Valley compatriots to bail him out.

Meanwhile, reports are circulating that Zuckerberg hired 16 bodyguards to protect him in his own house. Could this be the reason why?:

And in case his pleas to Zuckerberg fall on deaf ears, Kanye decided to reach out to Google co-founder Larry Page as well. And this time, he took his reasoning way too far:

Predictably, many of his Twitter followers have turned on Kanye, expressing their disgust at his egotistical remarks and mourning for the 'Ye they knew. Few have hope for his rehabilitation. Is Kanye a victim of his own genius? Has he spent too much time in the Kardashian fame cycle? Does he need to change up his meds?

We might never know.  At this point, most of us are just tuning in to see what will happen next. But as long as the music still delivers, we'll try our hardest to forgive the rest.

Before Kanye went to bed last night, he had one more thought to share:

Oh, Yeezy.
