Elon Musk Drops Surprise Rap Single "RIP Harambe" Day Before Tesla Q1 Deliveries

• by Tyler Durdan

Marshaling his Trumpian knack for distraction, Tesla CEO Elon Musk dropped his first rap single on SoundCloud, an unexpected release that, as at least one twitter wit pointed out, appeared to be calibrated to distract from Tesla's Q1 Model 3 deliveries (due out this week), and Musk's myriad other problems (like the SEC suing to hold him in contempt of court for violating the agency's restrictions on his twitter activity).

The song, titled "RIP Harambe", was dedicated to the 17-year-old gorilla who was shot and killed by a Cincinnati Zoo worker in 2016 after grabbing a three-year-old boy who fell into his pen. Since his untimely death, Harambe has become a popular meme and even inspiring an online movement ("Dicks out for Harambe").
