Kanye West Writes That He Is $53 Million In Personal Debt In A Series Of Rambling Tweets

Kanye West is the musical guest tonight on Saturday Night Live, but just prior to taking the stage he dropped a bombshell on Twitter.

He started out by talking about Paul the Apostle.

"Paul ... The most powerful messenger of the first century... Now we stand here 20 centuries later... Because he was a traveler," West wrote. "He was a learned man not of the original sect so he was able to take the message to the rest of the world. He was saved from persecution due to his Roman citizenship... I have the right to speak my voice."

The G.O.O.D. Music CEO then tweeted that he is swimming in debt.

"I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt," he continued. "Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart."

It's well known that West has been funding his fashion line primarily by himself. That might explain the revelation.

According to a report by the New York Post's Page Six earlier this week, he has reached out to several potential investors recently seeking $100 million in backing.

“Kanye is spending a lot of money," a source told Page Six. "He thinks on a big scale and is currently paying for everything himself. He needs a backer to help him achieve the kind of fashion-world domination he is aiming for.”

And my point was to disprove Kanye's comments about Paul bc they were false and not according to the Word written. I don't want ppl to think that what he said is true just bc he said it - something which the masses commonly do.

@Xcel, veinydicktracy, and king foley - It is not my intent to get you to understand me but just note that comments were in direct response to Kanye's comments or tweets. He brought up Paul the Apostle, being consumed, etc. not me - so the content of my comments are appropriate for this post. And it is absurd to think that a person who believes in God is not involved in today's culture. We live life just as everyone else lives life. Greed, violence, etc. is all a part of life. Paul himself was once a violent murderer. Many of your favorite rappers claim to believe in God. We should all be vocal about our beliefs. But I do realize that I am different from the masses in a of of ways so I get it even though I will never be silenced. Praise be to God that I am brave enough to truly be me at all times.
