Tesla CEO Elon Musk has shown his softer side — for primates, at least — by recording a rap single dedicated to Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed by a Cincinnati Zoo worker in 2016 after a child fell into his enclosure.

“RIP Harambe, sipping on some Bombay, we on our way to heaven, Amen, Amen,” Musk sings. “RIP Harambe, smoking on some strong, hey, in the gorilla zoo and we thinking about you.”

Musk released the track on SoundCloud Saturday, under his failed record label Emo G Records.

The 17-year-old Western Iowland gorilla was shot when he grabbed and dragged a three-year-old boy who had climbed into its enclosure.

In February, the Securities and Exchange Commission asked a judge to hold Musk in contempt for an “inaccurate” tweet that violated an agreement requiring the Tesla chief to receive pre-approval on all social media posts.
