How’s your weekend going? Good, good. Now, here, have a billionaire’s super-autotuned rap track about a famous deceased gorilla:
Tesla/Space X/Boring Company guy Elon Musk has apparently uploaded a SoundCloud track titled “RIP Harambe,” about the 17-year-old Western lowland gorilla that was shot to death at a Cincinnati zoo in 2016 after a three-year-old boy climb into his enclosure. No word yet on precisely what role Musk played in the creation of the track, beyond releasing it on his “failed […] record label.”
“This might be my finest work,” the billionaire tweeted about the track, uploaded to his Emo G (emoji) Records SoundCloud account. The song, which includes lines like “RIP Harambe / Smoking on some strong hay” appears to be more meme-centric that serious musical pursuit. But as James Dolan can happily attest, you should never let a little thing like being an ultra-wealthy executive get in the way of your dreams.
So, happy early April Fools’ Day, I guess. Honestly, I don’t really know anymore. Now back to your regularly scheduled weekend plans.
