‘RIP Harambe’: Elon Musk posts unexpected rap track dedicated to dead gorilla

‘RIP Harambe’: Elon Musk posts unexpected rap track dedicated to dead gorilla
Elon Musk has built a varied, and highly lucrative, career out of some unexpected enterprises but his latest move must be his strangest yet: a Soundcloud rap track dedicated to the dead gorilla Harambe.

Harambe the gorilla became an internet sensation after the 17-year-old animal was killed by staff at Cincinnati Zoo in 2016 when it grabbed a small child that entered its enclosure.

Musk’s unlikely track, RIP Harambe by Emo G records, has generated over 177,000 plays and hundreds of baffled comments on Soundcloud since it was uploaded on March 30. “We really miss you!” the singer – presumably Musk – repeats on the voice-modulated track.

Twitter users seemed unsure what to make of the whole enterprise, with their reactions ranging from bewilderment to concern for Musk’s sanity.

Musk himself seemed pretty disappointed with RIP Harambe’s initial reception:
