A student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, where West was visiting on Tuesday, posted a video of the rapper standing atop a table. He seems to be referencing Musk’s companies Tesla and SpaceX as examples of innovation before saying of Musk, “I don’t give a fuck who’s over at his house. Leave that man the fuck alone.”

In the 21-second clip, West manages to say a lot in very few words. He’s talking about the Securities and Exchange Commission’s lawsuit against Musk, which accuses him of misleading investors with a joking tweet about taking Tesla private at $420 per share. After a settlement, Musk was forced to resign as chairman of Tesla but remained CEO.
Amid the scandal, Azealia Banks posted Instagram videos from inside Musk’s house and claimed she was stood up by his then-girlfriend Grimes. Banks’ Instagram saga likely had little effect on the SEC investigation, and the singer even defended West this weekend after he went on a pro-President Donald Trump, anti-13th Amendment tirade.
But West seems to be less concerned about Banks than with any setbacks to Musk’s ability to innovate—or anyone’s ability to innovate, for that matter. During his Detroit jaunt, West tweeted videos of students’ projects at the College for Creative Studios and apparently asked Quicken Loans founder and chairman Dan Gilbert where the “flying car department” is located.
