Kanye West has never been a very traditional figure, whether in his personal life or his artistic life. Continuing his long string of weird career moves, Kanye became a beggar. He took to Twitter to beg Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg (ironic, right?) for money. And not just a little money. Kanye begged Zuckerberg for $53 million dollars.
