Everyone who owns a smartphone knows by now that controversial rapper Kanye West is $53 million in debt. On top of that, his new album, “The Life of Pablo” has been pirated more than a half-million times following its release less than a week ago.
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…

But after appeals to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg received no response, the Philadelphia Police Department had a message of their own for West: We’re hiring.

“U could be debt-free by the year 3122!” the post read.
The department even linked the tweet to their career page to ease the application process for the artist. Twitter users had overwhelmingly enthusiastic reactions to the suggestion:

The tweet, sent early Thursday morning, has yet to receive a reply from West.
