Kanye West is begging Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg for help, one day after acknowledging that he has “53 million dollars in personal debt.” But that’s not all. In yet another Twitter rant, West says he’s also desperately “down” for assistance from Google founder Larry Page.

On Sunday night, West began to ramble about a slew of topics on Twitter before asking for cash. It started with the rapper tweeting, “I’m practicing my Grammy Speech. I’m not going to the Grammys unless they promise me the Album of the Year!!!” He then stated in a later message, “I will have over 100 Grammys before I die.”

From the Grammys, West seemed to segue into general narcissism. “I am the [Michael] Jordan and Steph Curry of music, meaning I’m the best of 2 generations,” he wrote, adding, “All y’all so worried about being likable but only a few are concerned about being great!!!”

Next, West brought up that his music is more important that his growing debt. “I know y’all tired of music controlled by money and perception. I’m proud of every dime of debt I got,” he tweeted. The rapper continued, “[Musical] Bars are worth more than money because it’s something the people can use everyday to feel inspired.”

After that, West shifted into high gear about needing help. “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw,” he began. The rapper then tweeted, “World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me.” After then calling himself “this generation’s Disney,” West expressed that he doesn’t have “enough resources to create what I really can,” which is why he was reaching out to the Facebook founder on Twitter (huh?) and begging, “Mark, I am publicly asking you for help.” “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,” West further beseeched Zuckerberg.

From there, West moved on to Google’s billionaire’s founder. West wrote, “hey Larry Page I’m down for your help too.” But while seeking their assistance, the rapper began to attack the Silicon Valley moguls. “All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists,” West tweeted. “If you want to help… help me,” he stated, before griping, “All you guys had meetings with me and no one lifted a finger to help.”
