ABC/Randy Holmes

Kanye West returned to Twitter on Sunday morning to announce that he wants financial backing from Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

The moguel revealed that he’s seeking a billion dollar investment. “Mark, I am publicly asking you for help…” he began. “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 …”

Kanye justified his request by tweeting: “I’m this generation’s Disney… I want to bring dope s*** to the world…”

The rapper adds that he wanted to speak to the tech mogul over the phone. “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw,” Yeezy begged. “World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me.”

West also shared that he currently lacks the resources to bring his dreams to fruition. “I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can…” West wrote. “One of the coolest things you could ever do is to help me in my time of need and 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 continued his plea by including Google co-founder Larry Page. “hey Larry Page I’m down for your help too,” he added. “All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists…you’d rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country…if you want to help… help me…I promise I’m going to make the world dope…. all I do is make s**** dope #facts…All you guys had meetings with me and no one lifted a finger to help.”

The news comes after Kanye surprisingly claimed that he is $53 million in debt. “Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…,” he tweeted.

In other Kanye news, don’t expect the rapper to appear at tonight’s Grammy Awards. “I’m not going to the Grammys unless they promise me the Album of the Year!!!” he tweeted, adding: “I will have over 100 Grammys before I die.”
