Elon Musk, the multi-billionaire and founder of SpaceX disclosed that he gets his inspiration from Kany West. During a South By Southwest panel over the weekend, Musk was asked who he’s inspired by. His response was, “Well Kanye West, obviously.” Though his response was met with laughter from the audience.


In 2015, Kanye name-dropped the SpaceX helmsman several times during a speech at Oxford University’s Museum of Natural History. “I understand that I’m a servant. And with my voice, with my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people. Call Elon Musk out of the blue, or call Obama out of the blue,” Kanye West said.
