LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- After releasing his latest album The Life of Pablo, Kanye West has begun asking Mark Zuckerberg on social media to invest $1 billion into "Kanye West ideas."

The outspoken rapper started his appeal to Zuckerberg late Sunday after he revealed to fans on Twitter that he was $53 million in debt before he took the stage on Saturday Night Live. "I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...," he wrote.

Citing that he needed the extra money to help fund his grand ideas to make the world "a better place," West then called upon the Facebook founder and CEO to help with his debt problem.

"Mark Zuckerberg I know it's your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw...," West started his plea in a series of tweets. "You love hip hop, you love my art... I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house..."

"Mark, I am publicly asking you for help...one of the coolest things you could ever do is to help me in my time of need," he continued. "I will always respect you for that and the world will love you. I know I can make the world a better place... I have done the impossible... I retook the throne of rap... I beat the fashion game..."

West also also asked Google's Larry Page explaining "You'd rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country...if you want to help...help me.."

The recent twitter barrage from West comes after a busy month for the musician who has come under fire recently for tweeting that Bill Cosby is innocent and for a lyric on his new song "Famous" in which he references sex with Taylor Swift.
