Kanye West went on one of his infamous rants on Sunday night (Feb. 15), pleading with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to back his creative projects.

In a series of Twitter posts, he explained that he's racked up $53 million dollars in personal debt trying to see his vision come to fruition... but needs financing to the tune of $1 billion to make it really happen.

"Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time," Kanye wrote.

"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 ...," he continued. "World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me...

"I'm this generation's Disney... I want to bring dope sh*t to the world... I don't have enough resources to create what I really can... Mark, I am publicly asking you for help..."

Kanye even name drops Google co-founder Larry Page, saying he would accept an investment from him as well.
