We thought we'd seen it all from Elon Musk, but we were wrong. Now, he's dropped a two-minute track called 'RIP Harambe' on SoundCloud, and it's as weird as you'd expect.
The Tesla CEO and SpaceX executive combined an old meme and a large dose of Auto-Tune in the surprise track, which he released under the fictitious label 'Emo G Records'.
The song is a tribute to Harambe, the gorilla who was killed in Cincinnati Zoo after dragging a three-year-old boy who climbed into the enclosure in 2016.
And no, we don't know why, either.
In the rap, Musk can be heard saying:
RIP Harambe/Sipping on some Bombay/We on our way to heaven/Amen, Amen.
RIP Harambe/Smoking on some strong/In the gorilla zoo/And we thinking about you.
Since it was uploaded to SoundCloud early Saturday, the song has had more than 793,000 streams.
Speaking about his creation, he said:
This might be my finest work.
I’m disappointed that my record label failed.
Musk, 47, has been in trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission since last year, because of a tweet he sent out regards Tesla, his automotive and energy company based in Palo Alto, California.
Musk reached a settlement with the SEC last year, after he claimed on Twitter that he had secured funding to take Tesla private at $420 a share, and the SEC claimed that Musk had made 'false and misleading statements' regarding the funding.
The billionaire will appear in court on Thursday over a tweet he sent out in February in which he made statements about Tesla which the SEC claim don't reflect reality. Musk and his attorneys deny all the allegations.
