Harambe. Whenever you hear the name, your eyes start to swell with tears as you remember the mighty gorilla that was shot and killed in May 2016.

Almost three years later, Harambe’s legend continues to live on… primarily in the form of memes

Elon Musk has combined the meme with Auto-Tune into a surprise new rap called “RIP Harambe,” which the Tesla CEO uploaded onto SoundCloud.

The song lyrics include: “RIP Harambe/Sipping on some Bombay/We on our way to heaven/Amen, Amen,” an autotuned voice sings. “RIP Harambe/Smoking on some strong/In the gorilla zoo/And we thinking about you.”

While the rest of the world immediately linked the song title and themes to the death of the legendary gorilla, Jase was left scratching his head.


What is this ‘Harambe’ you speak of? A world leader? An actor? A rapper?

We kid you not – Jase had never heard of Harambe. If we were world leaders, the radio host would be exiled to Siberia and forced to learn the spiritual teachings of the late gorilla. 

Don’t believe that somebody could exist in 2019 without knowing who harambe is? Watch the video above and we’ll prove you wrong! 

Rest in peace, Harambe.
