Kanye West Wants Mark Zuckerberg To Give $1 Billion Toward His 'Art'

Rapper Kanye West needs a time-out from Twitter after his recent rant directed at Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google's Larry Page asking for money.

Kanye West has recently made headlines for changing the name of his new album multiple times, participating in a ridiculous Twitter war with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa, and for a derogatory line aimed at Taylor Swift in one of his new songs.

Now, taking his antics to a whole new level West revealed to the public that he is $53 million deep in personal debt and wants Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and/or CEO and Co-founder of Google Larry Page to spot him $1 billion.

West tried to solidify his outlandish argument by saying that he is “this generation’s Disney” and he seeks to make the world a better place with his art. He also pointed out that Zuckerberg is a fan of hip hop and his music, but yet does not contribute monetarily to the “art” he loves so much.

Some might argue that by purchasing albums and playing the music in his home, as West suggests, Zuckerberg is already doing his part to support the music, but based on West’s Twitter rant, that is just not enough.

He goes on to suggest that instead of donating to charity or opening up “one school in Africa,” Silicon Valley billionaires should give money to him so that he may continue to “make the world dope.”

If you are thoroughly confused and disturbed by this narcissistic argument that implies West’s music and clothing line are more important than charities that help malnourished and underprivileged children, you’re on the same page as the rest of us.
