Elon Musk was part of a Q&A at South by Southwest and attendees found out two pretty cool things.
One, he plans to launch spaceships to Mars in 2019. Two, he's inspired by Kanye West. When he was asked about his biggest inspiration and gave the answer of Kanye the people in the crowd began to laugh, but the look on Musk's face showed he was serious.
Plus, it wasn't the first time he mentioned YEEZUS as his inspiration. He gave the same answer in a 2015 excerpt from Time's 100 Most Influential People.Then Musk said about Kanye, "Kanye's belief in himself and and his incredible tenacity- he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut- got him to where he is today."
