One of Kanye West's dreams might come true.

On Sunday, he got the attention of L.A. Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, whom the rapper reached out to via Twitter.

"Steve Ballmer can I please redesign the Clippers mascot," West, 38, wrote.

But unlike Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – whom the musician asked to "invest" $1 billion dollars "into Kanye West ideas" after his $53 million debt claim last month – Ballmer, 59, is open to working with West.

"@kanyewest @LAClippers love Chuck but love your creativity. Lets talk. Lunch?" the former Microsoft CEO replied.

Then he took it a step further, writing, "@kanyewest Better than lunch. Let's grab a Clips game together and talk."

West dug the idea, replying on Monday, "%1000 Steve Ballmer. Let's meet this week if you have time. I was hanging with [Clippers player] Chris Paul last night."

And Ballmer made it clear he wants to get the ball rolling: "@kanyewest Let's meet for sure," he wrote. "We'll reach out and make it happen. Looking forward to it."

This isn't the first time the Yeezy designer has wanted to assist other brands. In February, he said he wants to work with French luxury company Hermés.

"I told Anna [Wintour] this backstage, just for a couple years, to be the creative director of Hermés would be a dream of mine," West shared at his Yeezy Season 3 launch event. "Oh, that's a bad idea? I just wanna bring as much beauty to the world as possible. I'm only 38 years old."
