And the real reason Zuck didn't loan Kanye $1 billion is...

Hip-hop star tells Ellen DeGeneres that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg didn't loan him any money because he asked for it on Twitter.

Kanye West has gone on another epic rant.

But not on social media; this time the hip-hop star waxed poetic on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show.

During an eight-minute-long interview that aired Thursday, West kept it 100, talking about his occasional bizarre antics, including asking Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion on Twitter in February after saying he was $53 million in debt.

This led to a GoFundMe campaign that raised some $8,000. West declined the money, which went to Notes for Notes, a nonprofit which builds, equips and staffs after-school recording studios in several major cities.

West admitted to DeGeneres that he probably should have asked Zuckerberg for the money on Facebook instead of on a rival social network. "Now I understand why he didn't hit me back...he doesn't use Twitter," he said.

"I have had dinner with him, and his wife told him about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he'd help me," West continued. "I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race existence within our 100 years better. Period."

West also told the talk show host that he doesn't need anyone to pre-approve his tweets (including his wife Kim Kardashian) and he doesn't think twice about them.

"What's the point in thinking?" he said, grinning.

Oh, that was just the beginning. West went on to talk about President Barack Obama, his family, Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs and Pablo Picasso.
