The buzz on Twitter is that Kanye West is broke. Well, actually, he saying it:
Sounds like a publicity stunt to sell albums. West's latest, "The Life of Pablo," was released this past weekend. He then tweeted a message to Facebook billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, begging for help:I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 14, 2016
Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 14, 2016
It appears not too many on Twitter are buying the rapper's pity rant and have been hillariously trying to "outboast" Kanye:World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016

I once bowled a 244. Left handed.
However, one is serious about Kanye's plight and has started a GoFundMe account to raise the $53 million the rapper so desperately needs to develop and unleash his genius upon the world. Created on Monday by Jeremy Piatt, the funding effort has raised a whopping $5 from on donation so far. Piatt claims he wants none of the money and is asking GoFundMe to give all proceeds directly to Kanye West:#OutBoastKanye I can cook minute rice in 57 seconds— DatOwl (@DatOwlTwitch) February 15, 2016
Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help! Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn't look like he's going to get Mark Zuckerberg's help that he desperately needs.
We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can't be realized. As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the "greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time". Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.
To quote Mr. West, "I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who's gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!"WE MUST BE THE MEDICI FAMILY TO KANYE. GoFundMe, let us unite!Click here if you want to contribute. For me, sorry, but I'll pass on this one and judging from the comments already posted on the GoFundMe site, I don't expect this fundraising effort will be successful. Here are a few choice words by some who don't think Kanye is a fund worthy subject:
