Kanye West Explains Why He's Asking for Money in New Tweets

Kanye West has just written another long series of tweets to explain why he is asking billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg to give him money.

The 38-year-old rapper revealed the day before that he is $53 million in debt and he called upon the Facebook co-founder to give him $1 billion to fund his ideas.

“If I spent my money on my ideas I could not afford to take care of my family. I am in a place that so many artist end up,” Kanye wrote in his new tweets. “Also for anyone that has money they know the first rule is to use other people’s money.”

    he has nothing of any real value to add to humanity, he isn’t researching cures for disease, building hospitals, schools, homes….he is a stain on the human race and the quicker this over indulged moron, his pig in laws disappear the better the world would be

  • The Absolute Truth

    He sure puts the ASS in class

  • The Absolute Truth

    U just described 99% of people

  • Ariana

    He is a jachole. Seriously why are other people supposed to help this idiotic, racist, misogynistic moron with his financial problems? Mark Zuckerberg is a billionaire withing his own right and Kanye is basically demanding he give his hard owned money to support Kanye and his family’s lavish lifestyle. Utterly disgusting and selfish!

  • VanityInsecurity

    wow. now I get why the man that was paid to write for his social media accounts quit, says Kanye needs psychological help… I’m going to have to agree.

  • leila

    99% of people don’t go on social media to ask a CEO for money to fund their idea of fashion, music and whatever bull he is trying to create

  • Ariana

    You know, if a white celebrity was behaving like how he was, they would be slammed in the media automatically for this very vain and selfish behaviour. The media has let Kanye West and his mixed-race family he married into off way too many times. Enough is enough! Please stop giving this clown a medium to speak on!

    Why is it entertainign that he has the nerve to ask a sefl-made billionare alot of his own heard earned money? Kanye and his family always falunt their wealth in the public! They have no one but themselves to blame if they are 53 million in debt.

    15-10 years ago, this behavior would not have been allowed. Obama and his cohorts encourages this behavior from blacks to act all greedy and entitled. Heck, just look at the Oscars! Black demanding awards just for being black! Where does this sense entitlement come from? Where do those greedy blacks get off asking for awards and asking a billion to give them 1 billion dollars to support their already rich and lavish lifestyle? Ridiculous!

  • Ariana

    No, Kanye is a greedy racist. He can trash whites and basically threaten to rape them( Those lyrics regarding TS sounded very rapey to me) but then when he is in 50 million debt, he goes and ask whites for their help. Blacks are the most greedy, most hypocritical, most entitled folks out there!

  • deusexmachina

    Please don’t stereotype the Black Community. They are just like any other human beings, human as in of every color, race or creed. There are A@@holes and there are great people in that group too And like any other entitled self delusional narcissistic prick who only happens to have dark skin: KANYE IS JUST BEING kANYE.

  • Wendy

    Why is he still asking for money if hedge fund managers are contacting him? It’s really sad actually what’s going on with him, there’s obviously some sort of mental illness going on.

  • MimiB

    Basically, he’s begging. But he’s not making any effort to right his financial distress. Oh no. He’s not selling, down sizing, tightening his belt or working… he’s just begging rich white men to help him out. Why on earth would anyone give this profligate wastrel a penny? Given how much he hates whites, I ask again, why would anyone white in their right mind help him maintain his lavish wastrel life style?

    Oh, and he asked Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook, for money on Twitter. LOL

  • Goobie Gillis

    Can we say DAMAGE CONTROL ? He’s lost face and someone told him to try and salvage his reputation, but it’s way too late Kanye,,,,you played your card, game over.

  • Goobie Gillis

    No one called him. It’s damage control. He is a toxic hot potato now and no one will give him a cent. No one believes in his vision. The whole idea that he’s making the world better is utter nonsense. His music is immature racist, negative, abusive to women and anything good in it is “sampled” I mean “stolen” from REAL artists. He is a fashion failure of the n’th degree. Even the shoes are a joke and that was where he was making money.

  • Katie Gared

    This guy is either trolling hard or has serious mental problems and needs help. I think it’s the latter. He needs a psychiatrist. I hope no one enables him any more than his wife and her family already does.

    VanityInsecurity AKA Ariana….you’re a racist cunt who doesn’t add value to the world..a coward who is on the internet chanting about blacks like some psychotic secret KKK member using the internet as your personal diary when you should be in an insane asylum getting therapy and a proper diagnosis..do you know everything about the black community? Your rant adds no value to the world..you’re spreading hate and causing toxic pollution with your ignorance and lack of knowledge about a community of individuals that you have no idea about. Please educate yourself first..the internet is not an educational tool..that’s why there are pedagogical institutions dear. If more people in the world was like you ..then everybody would be dead…I was going to ignore your post but for others lacking knowledge on the topics you’ve brought up..I advice you and them to read a book and educate yourselves..Racism has no productive value except to destroy,alienate, isolate, marginalize and bring ugliness like you into the world.

  • Anna

    I think Kanye lost his mind after the whole Amber Rose tweet. I mean, he was narcissist and an a-hole, but ever since the Amber Rose tweet, he’s gone full on crazy. #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch

  • Reese

    The world could use less bigots and more educated people..Kanye West is an a** but using him as a representation of ALL black people makes you an uneducated idiot and a bigot..

  • Reese

    Google the world..bigot your name should be right next to it on dictionary.com..I’ll submitted a request but since your internet personality is imaginary you secret KKK member..they decided not to add your name..I guess no name, no face bigots have NO VALUE IN SOCIETY..new convo! Kanye West is Kanye West..and he doesnt represent all black people just as you don’t represent your race..whatever race you are..

  • Ariana

    Not a KKK member racist bitch. I can say whatever I want about blacks due to their recent spoiled and entitled behaviour.

  • Ariana

    Get lost PC retard!

  • chaka1

    Black people don’t claim Kanye anymore. He belongs to white people since he became a Kardashian. His genius is your problem now.

    you think he has nothing to lose now?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Kris can do it.

  • jojie

    he is not rich. he is a poor man with no standards and is not in touch with the reality. this loon should be shipped together with the Kartrashian clan to an unknown planet far far away and should be banned entry from coming back to Earth. The world has enough problems.

  • Makaveli

    “Please ‘bare’ with me”!?!?! Please take some English Language classes. lol

  • Makaveli

    You mustn’t generalise or stereo-type, just because Kanye is a selfish, delusional, classless and uneducated idiot. ;-)

  • The Absolute Truth

    I’m referring to adding value to humanity.

  • dharmabob

    If he’s 53 million in debt, big whoop. Just borrow it from your wife, dude. And maybe spend a little less on bulls*** in the future. This man is a walking disaster.

  • Wesley Warner

    Lol he said don’t build schools in Africa help me get the fuck outta here he has millions but doesn’t wanna spend his own money, real people in the world don’t jus get to get bailed out of any situation do you think when somebody owes the irs and has debt they said hey people pay it off for me, no bc in the real world you don’t get bailed out for personal debt

  • Wesley Warner

    Hahaha so funny

  • cockbreath

    Perhaps Kanye West plans to use donated money to learn how to create a new body part to defecate out of, rather than just his mouth.

  • VanityInsecurity

    How convenient .. when once a black person starts to act erratic right away he’s not black.. just like Michael right? Everyone hated him cus he was a child molester but now that hes dead we love him again.. hypocrites.

  • VanityInsecurity

    I don’t know if black people are more greedy but I do agree they feel the most entitled. Or play the race card all too quick.

  • Ariana

    I am sorry but I have been seeing alot of black folks acting very spoiled and entitled lately. First was the Oscars, they have the galls to call the Academy racist and threaten to boycott over the lack of ‘diversity’ but then go ahead and have their own award shows like BET or NAACP based on skin color alone. Its ridiculous to have those standards.
    Now comes them being in debt, tons of blacks hate on white folks but then need their help all the time. Kanye has said many racist stuff about whites but then pleads on twitter to a white billionaire about loaning his black arse money. Hypocritical if you ask me.

  • Suerte Bebe

    Kanye is broke don’t lend him money anybody with the Kardashian will have mental issue and big debts like Lamar, Scott Disick not happy sad life now Kanye its a woodooo to marry the Kardashian…Please billionaires do not lend money to Kanye he is almost going to file chapter 11

  • suzybel

    Anybody else of the opinion that this guy is an a**hole?

  • Roland Chiasson

    genius!!?? that lower life form could not even write the captions to his autobiographical comic book … wassa matta for ya ?? blacks and niggers are really 2 different kind of people … educ ate yourself about the subject and hopefully you will reject niggerism … I am white and extremely helpful to black persons … it is sad that the ‘gubmint’ is enticing -thru all kinds of shitty programs- younger black people to reject the hard work of the last 50 years in true integration … and we are losing a whole generation to the mid-butt jeans wearing kids -some statement against whitey hey … I am not gonna wear a fucking belt to spite whitey …. too much- anyhoo therre are way too many niggers now and I give up … the great black scientists like deGrasse-Tyson, Gates -the physicist- et al are being passed over so the role models are now the fucktards like Spike lee, West, so I can bid thee farewell now and advice you to stock up on bananas … the monkeys are returning … good luck to ‘yall

  • Roland Chiasson

    nope .. he is just representing niggers .. not blacks … big difference bubba …

  • Karen Trueman

    Why does any of this have to do with colour? Enough already! l can’t possibly be the only person beyond sick of every conversation, regardless of its’ actual topic, being turned into a platform to rant, rather ignorantly, about black vs white, or vice versa. The world today could certainly use much less hate, ignorance, unkind words, and finger pointing and much more understanding, patience and kindness.
    This really has absolutely NOTHING to do with colour. I’m truly at a loss as to why people are so eager to be the catalyst of such negative communication. I’m a believer in free speech and that everyone has a right to their own opinion, regardless if it is one I agree with or not, however, l’m not sure where the “right” place is, if indeed there is one, for these types of rude, hateful and grossly ignorant comments. Social media is a fantastic source of information, a place to learn, grow, connect, speak out, create, share, dream, the opportunities online are virtually endless. Of course, there is always bad that comes with good. One of which, is what I refer to as “keyboard courage”. It’s the “courage” an individual exhibits when writing anything that comes to mind, regardless of how offensive, hurtful, ignorant, etc., it may be because they are hiding behind a keyboard and usually a username. I should call it “keyboard cowardess” because it really does take quite a coward to hide behind a computer screen, username and keyboard to say hateful and mean things that cause nothing but pain to others. Perhaps the next time you feel the need to spew your utterly ridiculous rants about black, white, yellow, purple, or whatever colour you feel is responsible for your discomfort in life, you will take that opportunity to take a peek in the mirror, look inward. Figure out what is really making you so angry, then remove it, once you are able to remove some of the anger out of your life maybe you will be able to read and see things and people for what and who they truly are. Once you’re able to do that your life will be truly enriched, happier, brigher and more positive.

    Okay woah I’m going to step in here real quick because the media is full of shit and I would like to defend a dead man who is not here today to speak for himself. First off it’s been awhile already since the case was thrown, it’s also at the same time not your fault for not knowing considering the media didn’t report such information. You realize the kids description of MJ’s male genitalia should have been enough evidence however of course in hindsight it should have been enough. The kid’s father passed away and after he passed away the kid who’s now grown told the truth which was, his father told him to make the accusation out of greed. MJ was friendly and that cost him his reputation of being some child molestor.

    how exactly does he intend to help the world?…
