Kanye West wants Mark Zuckerberg to give him $1bn

A new day, a new Kanye West Twitter rant. You'd almost think he had a new album to promote wouldn't you?

This time, he's claimed that he's $35m in debt - a claim we're really not sure we believe - and has begged Mark Zuckerberg to give him $1bn to invest in 'Kanye West ideas' to 'make the world dope', as he is 'this generation's Disney'.

Naturally, he decided the best way to alert the attention of the creator and CEO of Facebook was to post on Twitter.

He seemingly wants the money to fund his rather ambitious globe-straddling Donda business - he helpfully reposted the sectors that the company aims to conquer, including nuclear power, a 'luxury search engine', amusement parks and holograms. Of course.

He also suggested that tech firms should be giving him money instead of building schools in Africa.

Don't ever change Kanye, you ludicrous, almost certainly aware-of-how-many-people-will-report-this-(including-us)-and-give-free-publicity-to-his-new-album genius.

It's not just Facebook's main guy though, he'll take the cash from Google too:

Poor Kanye :-(
