There has been a longtime mutual admiration between the two as Elon said he was inspired by Kanye and dancer Fred Astaire during a Q&A session at South BY South West (SXSW) in March 2018.
Musk also wrote about West for Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in 2015 as he said: Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity – he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut – got him to where he is today. And he fought for his place in the cultural pantheon with a purpose.

Ben Beaumont-Thomas from The Guardian lavished praise upon the track, with a five star review commending the ‘masterful’ piece.
He wrote: ‘Wash Us in the Blood, though, has Kanye channelling his emancipated mind towards the sharpest point…
‘He is at his most powerful when he doesn’t try to be calm, but corrals his anger. There’s a wider lesson there, perhaps, as the US faces its own moment of revelation.’
