SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Kanye West is in debt and needs help, according to his Twitter account.

The rapper recently revealed on Saturday that he is $53 million in debt via Twitter after dropping his new album.

Now, West is turning towards the founder of Facebook to help him.

West asked Mark Zuckerberg over Twitter to “invest $1 billion into Kanye West ideas.”

The hip-hop artist released his long-delayed album, “The Life of Pablo,” on Saturday night. West announced the album was available on his website and on Tidal, the streaming service.

Before performing his newest hits on “Saturday Night Live,” West tweeted about his debt.

It’s not clear whether or not the debt is real, although the performer did claim a year ago he was $16 million in the hole trying to launch his clothing line.

However, his wife reportedly made $52.5 million in 2015, according to Forbes.com.

West went back to Twitter on Sunday to ask one of Silicon Valley’s richest young men for help, Zuckerberg. West sent out a series of Tweets asking Zuckerberg to give him an investment.

He even solicited help from the public to get Zuckerberg’s attention.

Zuckerberg’s birthday isn’t until May…

Zuckerberg has not yet responded to West, according to CNN.
