There has been a long-standing mutual admiration between the two as Elon said he was inspired by Kanye and dancer Fred Astaire during a question-and-answer session at South BY South West (SXSW) in March 2018.
Musk also wrote on West for Tlist of the 100 most influential people of ime magazine in 2015 as he put it: Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity – he performed his first single with his jaw closed – got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose.

“ Now that he’s a pop culture juggernaut, he has the platform to make it happen. He’s not afraid of being judged or ridiculed in the process. Kanye has been playing the long game from the start, and we’re just starting to understand why.
