Kanye West’s Pledge Week Continues on Twitter

“I just feel rich people are always too cool to ask for help"

Kanye West continued to beg for more money on Twitter on President’s Day after declaring over the weekend that he was over $50 million in debt.

The rapper went on a long and epic rant on the social media site Monday, explaining to fans that he could indeed “buy furs and houses” for his family but that he could not afford to bankroll his ideas.

He doubled down on his public plea to Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion into his ideas. “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw,” Yeezy tweeted, also asking social media users to join him in getting the billionaire to help him.

West called himself the “best of two generations” and the “self-proclaimed cockiest person in he world,” but he also appeared to be humble in some tweets. “I just feel rich people are always too cool to ask for help trying to impress each other at dinner parties,” he wrote. “I know y’all tired of music controlled by money and perception. I’m proud of every dime of debt I got.”
