Elon Musk drops an auto-tune rap about 2016 meme Harambe

The Tesla CEO uploaded it onto his Emo G Records' SoundCloud page this weekend.

"I'm disappointed my record label failed", he wrote. Is this some kind of early April Fools' Day prank or simply Musk's odd attempt to bring Harambe memes back three years later? The account only has one track listed and said track is the aforementioned "RIP Harambe".

Harambe was a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla killed in 2016 after a 3-year-old boy climbed into its enclosure.

The song has already amassed over half a million listens at the time of writing with many highlighting the fact that it was released just before April Fool's Day in the comments section.

UK's Theresa May ponders fourth vote on Brexit deal
A jogger gives the middle finger to a pro-Brexit demonstrator outside the Houses of Parliament in London on March 29, 2019. The prime minister is considering her next move after her withdrawal plan was defeated by MPs for a third time.

"RIP Harambe/Smoking on some strong/In the gorilla zoo/And we thinking about you".

Review of the track on Twitter have been mixed.

If there's something absolutely no one other than Elon Musk woke up this weekend thinking, it is "Elon Musk should release a rap single about Harambe, the tragically slain gorilla that became a meme almost three years ago, after which said meme subsequently got treaded into the ground, and more than a few people began noting it might actually have been kind of racist".

Bring Me The Horizon will be hitting Australian shores later this month for their First Love tour.
