On Saturday, March 30th, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, tweeted a Soundcloud link at 4:01 am to his 25.5 million followers. Included were the words “Emo G Records”.
The song is a tropical, autotune rap titled “RIP Harambe,” repeatedly referencing the Cincinnati zoo gorilla who was shot and killed in 2016.
Musk posted the same link at 4:10 am, this time with a message saying “I’m disappointed my record label failed.” He also tagged @yungjake & @bloodpop in the comments, who were the producer and songwriters of the track.

Has this dude lost his marbles, or could it be some sort of poke at recent ex-girlfriend, Grimes, that we don’t understand?
We’re not quite sure what inspired Musk to create and post this (probably the devil’s lettuce), but whatever his intentions, he’s got our attention. Listen to the track below and let us know in the comments if you think he has a future in the music industry!
