Hey Yeezy Fans: New GoFundMe Campaign Launches to Help Kanye West Out of His $53M Debt

Following Kanye West stating on Twitter that he is $53 million in debt, fans of the hip hop recording artists are hitting crowdfunding platform GoFundMe to help get him “back on his feet.”

The campaign, which was organized by Yeezy fan, Jeremy Piatt, reads:

Money in Wallet“Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get Mark Zuckerberg’s help that he desperately needs. We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and  can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized. As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the ‘greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.’ Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.”

According to TMZ, the debt that West is speaking of reflects how much money he has invested in his own companies related to fashion and music. 

Taylor Swift Kanye WestWhile fans stay loyal to West, others begin to think that maybe he’s just trying to get attention. Just days before he admitted his apparent money woes, Kanye received some backlash before the debt tweet was posted over the latest spat between him and pop singer, Taylor Swift. The two artists first met/experienced some drama when West got onto the stage of the 2009 MTV VMA awards and expressed his frustration about Taylor winning Video of the Year award over Beyonce. Now, nearly seven years later, Kanye referenced the ordeal in his new song

Now, nearly seven years later, Kanye referenced the ordeal in his new song Famous. The lyrics read “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b*tch famous.” This obviously offended Swift and her fans. Despite West stating that he had permission from Swift to put her in the lyrics, a rep of the “Bad Blood” songstress revealed that he only asked her if she could post the video on her Twitter.

Since its launch, the GoFundMe campaign has secured nearly $875.
