The Tesla CEO uploaded the track under the banner of Emo G Records. The single is drenched in the Auto-Tune and resurrects a three-year-old meme.
Harambe was a gorilla who was infamously shot at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016. A zookeeper killed the animal after it grabbed a boy who managed to get into its enclosure, sparking widespread media coverage and an abundance of memes.
Musk memorializes Harambe on his new song’s hook with the following lyrics:
“RIP Harambe, sipping on some Bombay/We on our way to heaven, Amen, Amen/RIP Harambe, smoking on some strong, aye/In gorilla zoo and we thinking about you.”
