The rapper – who released both a brand spanking new album and clothing line in the same week – reached out to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg appealing for financial help.
There’s no word yet from the social media mogul but who needs him when you’ve got the generous public to pull their resources together and set up a crowd-funding campaign.
Feast your eyes on this GoFundMe page, dedicated to helping the rapper overcome his financial struggles and raise the $53 million he so humbly asks for.
“Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help!” the Help Get Kanye Out of Debt page reads.
“Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get Mark Zuckerberg’s help that he desperately needs.
“We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized.
It continues: “To quote Mr. West: ‘I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who’s gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!’
“WE MUST BE THE MEDICI FAMILY TO KANYE.”
Despite the thrilling case put forward for the campaign, only $10 of donations have been made in aid of Kanye.
