Just one day after the rapper claimed that he was $53 million dollars in personal debt, even asking Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest in his ideas, West admits he’s still rich enough to support his family. He just wants to other people to invest money in his dreams to “bring beautiful ideas to the world.”
“I just feel rich people are always too cool to ask for help trying to impress each other at dinner parties,” West writes on Twitter, adding: “I want to help the world and I need help to do it. I am an artist and I care about humanity.”
What does he need all this money for? It’s all for his art.
“Yes I am personally rich and I can buy furs and houses for my family, but I need access to more money in order to bring more beautiful ideas to the world,” the rapper revealed.
Although it’s unclear how West plans to use any of the investments he receives, one thing is for certain -- he doesn’t plan to use his personal funds on these projects.
“If I spent my money on my ideas I could not afford to take care of my family. I am in a place that so many artist end up,” he writes. “Also for anyone that has money they know the first rule is to use other people's money.”
West goes on to explain that he feels that his celebrity status takes away from people fully understanding his purpose.
Although The Life of Pablo rapper’s ideas seem a bit confusing, he does claim that he has been contacted by “hedge fund guys billionaires etc.,” who want to help him financially with his visions.
