Jay Z Get Your Homie: Kanye West Begs Mark Zuckerberg For $1 Billion

I don’t know about this one.
Kanye West has now requested that Mark Zuckerberg give him $1 billion for his musical ambitions (NOT MAKING THIS SH!T UP!).
At least that was what the famous rapper seemed to be getting at early Monday morning when he tweeted another famous rant via his verified Twitter account. It only came hours after he surprised the world when speaking about his personal financial trouble, claiming that he is allegedly $53 million in debt.
West insinuated that Silicon Valley was filled with hypocrites – executives who want to look cool while listening to their rap music, but never seem to want to do anything to help further the growth of this particular category of the music industry.
The rapper made what looked to be a thinly veiled reference to Zuckerberg’s educational philanthropy, saying that he was the “Jordan and Steph Curry of music, meaning I’m the best of 2 generations.”
As the account continued on with a plea for money, West’s fans pleaded for the rapper to stop crying for two seconds so that he could release his new album, “The Life Of Pablo” via iTunes and Spotify. The album is currently only available on Tidal, which is Jay-Z’s subscription music service that was launched just last year. West reportedly has a small stake in Tidal, along with Madonna and other big name artists.
For those of you who may not know, Tidal charges $20 a month for a high-fidelity version and only $10 a month for the standard quality on downloads.
West recently made other headlines when he defended his father-in-law/trans-mother-in-law, Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner after the two of them took what people thoughts was an awkward picture together.
Here is what Kanye had to say in defense of his wife’s mom/dad: “I’m proud of this picture with me and Caitlyn…”
“She gave the most heart felt speech at my wedding,” the father-of-two continued of the ‘I Am Cait’ star, adding: “and was there in full support to see me realize this dream…”
So, what are your thoughts on all this havoc that Mr. West is causing?
