(WCMH)– Kanye West announced his new album “The Life of Pablo” over the weekend but it was the rapper’s personal finances that had everyone talking.

According to CNN, West tweeted to his followers that he is $53 million in personal debt. Along with this announcement, the album release was delayed.

“Please pray we overcome…This is my true heart,” West tweeted.

The new album is now only available on the streaming service Tidal, and the rapper pleaded with his fans to subscribe to the service if they want to hear it.

West also called on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest money into his ideas after “Realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.”

However, many people are skeptical of West’s claims, and wonder if he was being serious or not.
