Among all of the erratic tweets Kanye West has fired off over the past few weeks, the most surprising may be the one where he admitted he’s $53 million in debt.
Kanye seems to have an optimistic attitude about his money woes, and went on to explain that his creative spirit shall triumph in the end and blah, blah, blah. That confidence doesn’t quite negate his deep debt, though, which is why Kanye has now seemingly become the country’s most in-demand job recruit.
Following on the heels of Pizza Hut UK -- which expertly trolled ‘Ye earlier this week -- the Philadelphia police have now offered Kanye a position in their department. Referencing a base salary of $47,920, they estimated Kanye could be out of his debt by 3122. What a deal!
For good measure, they also included an expertly Photoshopped pic of Kanye in uniform, as well as a clever jab at Tidal, which Kanye’s new album The Life Of Pablo has been exclusively streaming on. AND they even linked to the department’s career page to make the application process extra easy for Yeezy. So thoughtful.
Never mind that Kanye once rapped “I say fuck the police, that’s how I treat ‘em” in “All Falls Down” or, more recently, “Hands up, we just doing what the cops taught us” in the TLOP cut “Feedback.” We’re sure ‘Ye would rock that badge and use his authority oh-so-wisely.
As The Hollywood Reporter points out, this isn’t the first time the Philadelphia police have had fun with social media. In December, police posted a photo of two Storm Troopers getting arrested with the caption, “No, posting #StarWarsForceAwakens spoilers online is not a crime. Yes, it should be,” adding that “any illegal Sith behavior will still be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The department also once made a parody video of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and used an old clip of “Saved By the Bell” as a PSA against drugs. Clearly, their social media game is on point… which actually makes us think they might want to reconsider recruiting Kanye. Unless the departments WANTS its Twitter account to become overrun with random rants about Mark Zuckerberg and Tron.
