Tesla co-founder and leader of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has named Kanye West as a person of inspiration.
During a recent SXSW Q&A seminar, the Tesla boss said that Yeezy was an obvious inspiration. Hollywood reporter Natalie Jarvey took to twitter to confirm Musk’s remarks:
Well, Kanye West, obviously. And Fred Astaire.
It doesn’t go without notice that Musk is a huge fan of Yeezus, as Elon wrote Kanye’s feature in the 2015 TIME 100 most influential people of the year. In the 2015 feature, Musk stated:
Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity-he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut-got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose.
