The rapper requested the Facebook founder's financial backing in a tweet

Kanye West has asked Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1bn into his ideas.

West indirectly made the request to the Facebook founder, whose net worth is estimated to be $44.6bn, in a tweet on Sunday (February 14).

West does not go on to elaborate which of his ideas he wants Zuckerberg to back.

West has since posted more tweets on the matter. See those below.

The ‘Yeezus’ rapper has attempted to get a number of projects funded in Silicon Valley in the past. During the Madison Square Garden unveiling of his new album last week, West showed off a video game, titled ‘Only One’, which he revealed was rejected by developers.

Last night, West released his highly-anticipated seventh studio album ‘The Life Of Pablo’ following his performance on SNL.

‘The Life Of Pablo’ has 18 tracks and features Frank Ocean, Chance the Rapper, Rihanna, Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Thug, The-Dream, Kid Cudi, Kirk Franklin, Post Malone, Kelly Price, and more.
