Kanye West revealed his financial struggles in a series of Twitter messages, following the release of his new album “The Life of Pablo.”

Kim Kardashian West’s husband took to Twitter on Saturday, according to E! News, to share some of his thoughts, including a surprising revelation about his finances. Besides telling his fans that he was “consumed ... to help the world,” which he said was his purpose, he also asked his followers to pray for him.

“Let's dance in the streets. I am consumed by my purpose to help the world. I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt ... Please pray we overcome ... This is my true heart ... This is all all is fun all in good feelings ... We will all be gone 100 years from now but what did we do to help while we were here!!!” Kanye wrote on Twitter.

He posted the Twitter messages just a few moments before he appeared on “Saturday Night Live,” as evidenced by a post where he stated that he was being called on the “SNL” stage and promised his fans to “speak soon.” Kanye also called out Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a series of Twitter messages on Sunday. 

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





It is still unclear if Kanye’s Twitter revelation of his $53 million debt is true, although Forbes ranked him at No. 6 of its Hip-Hop Cash Kings of 2014. Forbes estimated his annual earnings at $30 million at the time and said that his 2013 tour for his “Yeezus” album has added “double-digit millions to his bottom line.” Kanye’s “Life of Pablo” album was the artist’s follow-up album after 2013’s “Yeezus.”

Meanwhile, Kanye performed two tracks of his new album during his recent “Saturday Night Live” appearance, Variety reported. He sang the songs “Highlights” and “Ultralight Beam” at the show, just days after he unveiled his latest album “Life of Pablo” during the launch of his new Yeezy-branded line for Adidas at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.
