Elon Musk apparently tried to start a career as a SoundCloud rapper over the weekend. Yes, we’re not making this up.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO shared his new (and short lived) career move on Twitter with a song called “RIP Harambe” under his company Emo G Records.

The song pays homage to the infamous gorilla Harambe from the Cincinnati Zoo. The gorilla was killed after grabbing a three-year-old child who got into the enclosure. Harambe became a huge meme back in 2016 when the incident occurred, but Musk is apparently bringing it back.

However, after one day of his record company being in business, Musk claimed that his label had failed. You can listen to the song and see his announcements on Twitter below.


After he announced it was dead, he blamed the duck emoji. For some context to try to make sense of all of this, Musk tweeted a single duck emoji which got more favorites than his song, which he called a “crushing victory.”

Who knows if Musk was serious about trying to get in the music business, or if it was just a gag but either way, the song is definitely too ridiculous to ignore.
