"I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...

"This is all all is fun all in good feelings... We will all be gone 100 years from now but what did we do to help while we were here!!!

"They are calling me to the SNL stage now ... Speak soon... (sic)"

Kanye also came out in support of Caitlyn Jenner, after she attended his show at Madison Square Garden in New York, when he debuted his new album 'The Life of Pablo' and his latest fashion collection.

Alongside a photograph of himself and Caitlyn, Kanye wrote: "I'm proud of this picture with me and Caitlyn... She gave the most heart felt speech at my wedding.
