Rap music has undoubtedly been the most quotable genre in the past few decades in pop culture, whether it’s been referenced in TV shows, Sports players quoting on their social media, or just a viral post by fans.
This time a popular song from the Best Selling Rapper Eminem has made into the court case of the world’s Richest Man Elon Musk court filing. Space X CEO Elon is currently facing a legal battle for his tweets made from April 2019 to now, as a request by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) which determine whether Musk received pre-approval for each of them by a Tesla lawyer before publication and ongoing investigation whether November stock sales violated insider-trading rules.
In response, Elon Musk who alleged that SEC is violating his First Amendment Right has direct quoted Eminem’s ‘Without Me lyrics with a minor change
“The (SEC) won’t let me be or let me be me so let me /they tryna shut me down..”. In the filing, Eminem’s 2002 case with FCC ( Federal Communications Commission) was also cited, when FCC lamented $7K against a Colorado station for playing his song ‘The Real Slim Shady’. Musk’s lawyers noted that “the First Amendment is a critical Constitutional limitation that demands we proceed cautiously and with appropriate restraint.”
It’s not the first time the multi-billionaire has quoted Rap God’s lyrics just last month on his Twitter, Elon quoted the lyrics “I didn’t start the fight but i will finish it” from Eminem’s song ‘The Sauce’ which was aimed at Benzino at the time.
I didn’t start the fight, but I will finish it.
