Kanye joins the likes of Apple CEO Tim Cook, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Nolan and his own wife Kim Kardashian on Time’s 2015 100 Most Influential People list. Elon Musk wrote a short blurb about Ye’s influence:

You don’t think I can make a T-shirt?’ ” he told me. “ ’Look at everyone in the audience — we’re selling $300,000 worth of T-shirts every night!’ ”
