First came Hyperloop - the speedway vacuum system for  cars.

Then came the plan to colonize to Mars.

And just when you thought he must have run out of crazy, Elon Musk has dropped an auto-tune rap song called  'RIP Harambe' on Saturday, referring to the killing of Harambe - the gorilla who had been shot dead on May 28, 2016, at the Cincinnati zoo in an effort to rescue a 3-year-old boy who had fallen into the gorilla's enclosure. The shooting had sparked worldwide outrage among animal lovers.

Musk had released his song on SoundCloud account - Emo G records tweeting:

"I'm disappointed that my record label failed"

In the 1:56 minutes-long song, Musk describes Harambe (the gorilla) relaxing while 'sipping on some Bombay' (a cocktail) en route to heaven. He keeps repeating how animal lovers around the world 'keep thinking about him'. He sings that they miss him while at the zoo where Harambe may have been 'smoking on some strong hay'.

The track, which Musk promoted to his 25 million fans on Twitter, had about 500,000 plays as of Sunday evening itself.
