KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Celebrity fashion designer and rapper Kanye West is causing quite a stir on Twitter. However, it is not because of a feud. West is begging for Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to invest in him after announcing having $53 million in debt.
He begged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in “Kanye West ideas” on Sunday. This began after fans complained about buying a Tidal subscription to listen to the rapper’s “The Life of Pablo” album, according to CNN. The album was released on Saturday. West debuted his third season of his fashion line, Yeezy, last week. A year ago, the rapper claimed that the line made him $16 million in debt, according to CNN.
West went on to ask fans to reach out to Zuckerberg through any form they could.
The Facebook founder was not the only person West begged to help him. West asked Larry Page. Page is a co-founder of Google.
During his multiple tweets, West claimed that people in San Francisco listen to rap music but do not help artists. The rapper said that investors can help him achieve his goals.
