Elon Musk, the eccentric multi-billionaire and founder of SpaceX (a company dedicated to revolutionizing space technology), has revealed that he looks to a Hip Hop star for inspiration.

During a South By Southwest panel over the weekend, Musk was asked who he’s inspired by. His response: “Well Kanye West, obviously.”

Unfortunately for ‘Ye, Musk’s response was immediately met with laughter from the audience.

Back 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.
