The rapper defended the entrepreneur, who recently had problems.
On October 2, rapper Kanye West arrived in Detroit: during the trip, he managed to meet with the heads of the companies Quicken Loans and StockX, as well as have lunch with his father. After that, the performer went to the College of Creative Studies (CCS) – a private institution with a bias in art education

Later, one of the CCS students published a video from a meeting with a rapper. On it, the West stands on the table and protects the head of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk. “I absolutely do not care who’s there in his house. Leave him, ****** [pancake], alone (“Leave that man the fuck alone”), ”he said at the end of the speech.

Journalists have suggested that the words of West are relevant to the latest news around Musk: On September 27, the Securities Commission accused the entrepreneur of misleading shareholders with a tweet about Tesla becoming a private company. As a result, Musk agreed with the authorities: he resigned from the post of chairman of the board of directors of the company and paid a $ 20 million fine.
The phrase about the house is a reference to the conflict between the entrepreneur and rap singer Azilia Banks. According to her words , she was in the house musk, when he wrote a tweet about Tesla. Banks said that the head of Tesla announced a price of 420 dollars per share because of the reference to the culture of marijuana.
In March 2018, Ilon Musk called Kanye West his source of inspiration. In 2016, he wrote a rapper profile for Time publication – the musician then entered the hundred of the most influential people in the world. And West dedicated Tesla and Musk tweets.
