Elon Musk just dropped a rap single called 'RIP Harambe'

Elon Musk is described by Wikipedia as a 'technology entrepreneur, investor and engineer'. However, the online encyclopedia seems to be missing a beat in recognising the Tesla CEO as a 'rap superstar' alongside the aforementioned. That's right. Musk surprised all of his Twitter followers this weekend by dropping what can only be described as an auto-tuned, rap masterpiece.

The song "RIP Harambe" first landed on Musk's SoundCloud and the SpaceX boss said, “This might be my finest work”. The track, which is two minutes long, is a tribute to the deceased gorilla Harabme, whose death in the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016 caused shock and sadness across the world.

Lyrics include lines such as “RIP Harambe/Sipping on some Bombay/We on our way to heaven/Amen, Amen,” and “RIP Harambe/Smoking on some strong/In the gorilla zoo/And we thinking about you.”

The track already has over 340,000 plays on SoundCloud.
