As a Tribute to Harambe, Elon Musk Releases Rap Song ‘RIP Harambe’

Is this some kind of early April Fools' Day prank or simply Musk's unusual attempt to bring Harambe memes back three years later?

Tesla shares dropped below the $270 mark this week, Wall Street is now focusing closely on the $250 figure which Tesla shares have not closed below since March 2017.

"R.I.P Harambe" is a heavily autotuned single that features a rapper - apparently Musk himself, though this of course could be an elaborate prank - spitting bars about how Harambe, a gorilla who died back in 2016, is still extremely dead.

Under the agreement hashed out past year, Musk was supposed to stop tweeting about Tesla's business without a lawyer's approval.

Musk's fight with the SEC, to play out in a Manhattan federal court hearing, has raised investor worries that it could lead to restrictions on his activities or even his removal from Tesla, while distracting him at a pivotal point in the company's expansion. If they can't resolve their differences, she'll rule. The courtroom appearance doesn't seem to be doing Tesla any favours as, combined with news of the company's biggest sales drop in its history, the auto maker's stock dropped 8 per cent on Thursday. The call for help included the hashtag #stuckinaparkinglot indicating she had been left stranded... hopefully she had no other plans.

Only half of the entire quarter's vehicles were delivered 10 days before the period ended, according to Tesla.

Electric vehicle pioneer Tesla announced its first quarter delivery numbers last night - and the news is not good.

The SEC argued that Musk should be held in contempt because he "did not seek or receive pre-approval prior to publishing this tweet, which was inaccurate and disseminated to over 24 million people".

A lawyer for the SEC told the court that Musk should face substantial escalating fines if he keeps violating a deal with the agency.

Despite the slow-down, the company maintained its earlier projection that it would deliver between 360,000 and 400,000 vehicles by the end of the year.

In July, Musk used Twitter to accuse a British diver involved in the rescue of a youth football team from a Thai cave system of being a paedophile after the diver criticised a mini-submarine Musk had offered to help with the rescue.
