Kanye West announced the release of his new album, “The Life of Pablo” via his Tidal app Feb. 13 on “Saturday Night Live.” The problem was the album wasn’t actually available until the wee hours of the morning Sunday.

On Valentine’s Day, Kanye serenaded Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Twitter with a barrage of tweets, asking the billionaire to lend him 1 billion dollars. West is currently $53 million deep in debt, according to a tweet the star composed while waiting to perform on “SNL.”

Sunday’s rant began with a direct appeal to Zuckerberg to fund his creative projects.

He’s certainly not too proud to beg, though it can’t exactly be said that Yeezy is a “humble” guy.

Kanye told fans that he was going to “fix” “Wolves,” the track on his new album that features Chance the Rapper, before announcing a change in downloading strategy. Fans would be required to subscribe to Tidal in order to hear “The Life of Pablo.”

Several hours later, the strategy appeared to have paid off, making Tidal the top ranking app on the Apple App Store.

What Kanye wants, Kanye gets.

Not all of Ye’s followers were as confident as he was:

Yeezy, who clearly wasn’t phased, took some time to remind the world of his achievements—past, present and future.

But even devoted Kanye fans had trouble stomaching all of his bold claims.

West, however, didn’t waste time rebuking the haters. He was on a mission.

And he wasn’t giving up on Zuckerberg.

Very considerate. Except Zuckerberg’s birthday is May 14. And thank goodness because the Facebook mogul is probably overwhelmed with direct messages.

It remains to be seen as to whether Zuckerberg will take the rapper up on his proposal, and whether Kim is mad at the billionaire CEO for inadvertently ruining whatever Valentine’s Day plans she might’ve had.
