Elon Musk Drops ‘RIP Harambe’ Rap Song on SoundCloud: Listen

Elon Musk can now add "rapper" to his accomplished résumé.

On Saturday (March 30), the Tesla and SpaceX CEO randomly uploaded an auto-tuned rap song called "RIP Harambe" on SoundCloud. Posted under the handle Emo G Records, the two-minute track pays tribute to the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla who was killed in 2016 after a 3-year-old climbed into its living area.

"RIP Harambe/ smoking on some strong hay/ in the gorilla zoo and we thinking about you," the person on the song raps.

Musk announced "RIP Harambe" and his faux label to his 25 million Twitter followers early Saturday morning. "I’m disappointed that my record label failed," the 47-year-old entrepreneur wrote.

"RIP Harambe" had more than 200,000 plays as of Sunday afternoon. Listen to the track and see Musk's tweets below.
