Well, isn’t this nice? Too bad Kanye West isn’t a hungry child in need.

After ‘Ye publicly asked Mark Zuckerberg for financial backing and admitted that he’s $53 million in the hole, someone in Minneapolis, Minn. was kind enough to start up a GoFundMe page to “be the Medici Family” for Kanye.

The description reads as follows:

Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help!

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.

To quote Mr. West, “I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who’s gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!”

For obvious reasons, the fund has only raised $364. Check out the GoFundMe page for yourself. Oh, and make sure you read the comments; they’re hilarious.
