The song, which is heavily autotuned, contains the lyrics, “RIP Harambe, sipping on some Bombay, we on our way to heaven, Amen, Amen.” Musk also referred to “Emo G Records” in his tweet, later tweeting, “I’m disappointed that my record label failed.”

Harambe was a 17-year-old gorilla who was shot to death at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016 after he grabbed a child who had fallen into his enclosure. After news of his death came out, the gorilla became a meme.
Musk, 47, has been in trouble with the Securities and Exchange Commission since last year because of his Twitter account.
Musk reached a settlement with the SEC last September after he claimed on Twitter that he had secured funding to take Tesla private at $420 per share. The SEC said that in that instance, Musk made “false and misleading statements” regarding the funding.
In a settlement, Musk agreed to pay a $20 million fine to the SEC and relinquished chairmanship of Tesla for at least three years. Tesla also paid a $20 million fine to the SEC.
Musk will be in court on Thursday over a tweet from February in which he made statements about Tesla’s manufacturing that the SEC claims did not reflect reality, although Musk and his attorneys have pushed back on that characterization.
