2016-02-15 10:04

Los Angeles - Kanye West asked Mark Zuckerberg for $1bn.

The 38-year-old rapper - who claimed over the weekend he is $53m in debt - appealed to the Facebook founder to invest in his "ideas" and thinks he is worth the money as he is the "greatest artist of all time".

In a series of Tweets he said: 

The All Day hitmaker - who has children North, two, and Saint, two months, with wife Kim Kardashian West - went on to urge his followers to contact Mark to help him.

And Kanye - who debuted his album Life of Pablo at his Yeezy fashion show in New York last week - claimed he is "this generation's Disney" who needs the "resources" to make the world "a better place".

The Gold Digger rapper also asked Google co-founder Larry Page for financial assistance, insisting helping him would be more beneficial than "opening up one school in Africa".

In his lengthy Twitter outburst, he wrote:

Hold up. Africa. A country?! 

Kanye's latest Twitter rant comes after he appealed to fans to pray for him to "overcome" his financial difficulties.
