Kanye West is one of the most successful people in the world of music -- has been for a long time -- which makes it especially confounding he confessed to being $53 million in debt.

Kanye tweeted Saturday night, "I write this to you my brothers while still $53 million dollars in personal debt," adding "Please pray we overcome."

All the estimates you read about are guesses, but Kanye's net worth is often estimated at somewhere north of $100 mil and Kim Kardashian adds nearly $50 mil to the pot, probably more.

Dude needs a good Kickstarter campaign.
