On Wednesday (July 1), ‘Ye shared a photo from the billionaire SpaceX inventor’s home showing both men dressed somewhat similarly. This apparently excited Yeezy, who noted their similarities when tweeting the picture.
“When you go to your boys house and you’re both wearing orange,” he wrote with an orange emoji.

Kanye and Musk have been friends since at least 2015, when the G.O.O.D. Music founder named Musk multiple times while giving a speech at Oxford University’s Museum of Natural History.
“I understand that I’m a servant,” he said. “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.”
In 2018, Musk said he was “obviously” inspired by Kanye during a South By Southwest panel — and was met with laughter from the audience.
The billionaire entrepreneur has been drawing criticism in recent months for his downplay of COVID-19 and speaking out against Stay-At-Home orders. Meanwhile, ‘Ye has drawn criticism for his support of Donald Trump.
Snoop Dogg was among the critics who spoke out against ‘Ye’s support of Trump, but he was recently pictured in the studio with Kanye and Dr. Dre, causing some people to label him a “hyprocrite.”
