Kanye West Consulted Elon Musk On Plans To Build "Texas Utopia": Report
Over the years, Kanye West expressed his desire to build his own utopian community, which appears to be the same thing that Elon Musk plans on doing in Texas. Per WSJ, Musk acquired 3,500 acres of land just outside of Austin. The SpaceX founder plans on turning the plot of land into "a sort of Texas utopia along the Colorado River, where his employees could live and work" near the facilities for SpaceX and Boring Co. This would reportedly allow Musk to develop his own regulations on the land which would help speed up his plans.
Apparently, Elon Musk consulted Kanye West about building the Texas town. According to WSJ, Ye, and Elon Musk held a meeting in 2022 to discuss these plans. Details surrounding the meeting remain unclear but Ye's expressed his fondness of Musk's innovations and vice versa. During a Q&A at SXSW a few years back, Musk named West as a person that inspires him. With that said, it's no surprise that he would've wanted Ye's thoughts on his Texas town.
Kanye & Elon Musk's Fall Out
At this point, it's unclear when the meeting took place. Kanye West and Elon Musk haven't necessarily seen eye-to-eye in recent times due to the former's anti-Semitic comments. Musk suspended Ye from Twitter for posting a swastika on his page in the midst of his hateful 2022 tirade. Musk also said that he "personally wanted to punch" Ye over his spree of anti-Jewish comments that ultimately led to Adidas and GAP parting ways with the artist.
In response to the suspension, Ye questioned whether Elon Musk was a "genetic hybrid" of a Chinese genius and a South African model. "Take a Chinese genius and mate them with a South African super model, and we have an Elon," he said. "??I say an Elon because they probably made 10 to 30 Elon's and he's the first genetic hybrid that stuck." We'll keep you posted on any more details surrounding Ye and Elon Musk's meeting.
