(Newser) – Elon Musk apparently had some fun over the weekend: The Tesla and SpaceX CEO released a rap song called "RIP Harambe" on SoundCloud Saturday, Billboard reports. The "Emo G Records" release, which can be heard here, pays tribute to the gorilla killed at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016. "RIP Harambe/Sipping on some Bombay/We on our way to heaven/Amen, Amen," an autotuned voice sings, per Rolling Stone. "RIP Harambe/Smoking on some strong/In the gorilla zoo/And we thinking about you." "I'm disappointed that my record label failed," Musk joked in a tweet hours after the release. By Sunday night, the tune had been listened to almost 800,000 times. (Read more Elon Musk stories.)
