Last weekend Kanye West asked for prayers.
He tweeted out that he’s $53 million in debt.
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…

On Thuesday Kanye’s prayers were answered.
The Philly Police Department offered him a job to help pay off his debt.
NBC New York reported on the generous offer.
Philadelphia police have an idea to get cash-strapped Kanye West out of his allege $53 million in debt: become a cop.
Kanye asked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for help lowering his massive debt but maybe working as a Philly officer could be what “Yeezy” needs, even if it takes a little longer than expected.
“With a starting salary of $47,920, Officer West could be completely debt-free by the year 3122! And that’s only if he were never to receive a single raise! With a few promotions and cost of living increases, Yeezy could probably break even in a quick 500 years,” the police department wrote on Facebook Thursday.
Five centuries to become debt free might not appeal to the rap superstar, but Philly police posted to their Facebook page and Twitter feed in hopes that the nearly $50,000-a-year starting salary appeals to job seekers willing to put their lives on the line.
