Tesla CEO Elon Musk once again sent his Twitter followers into a spin with his dive into the deep meme scene, pitting a number of older memes against other each – including a RIP Harame SoundCloud song.

Elon Musk is no stranger to memes, especially on Twitter. He memed an appearance on Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s Meme Review into life, alongside Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland, in a bid to help the Swede in his fight for YouTube’s top subscriber spot against T-Series.

Following that long-awaited clip, the SpaceX head honcho followed up with a Call of Duty: Zombies revive meme based around the Mars Opportunity Rover finally going offline after 14 years.

YouTube / PewDiePieFans had been awaiting Musk’s appearance on PewDiePie’s ‘Meme Review’ for sometime.

Has Elon Musk got a music label?

Yet, his trip into the world of Tweeting memes is far from over, as he has found a new avenue to explore – SoundCloud songs.

Musk shared a SoundCloud link to a meme rap song called ‘RIP Harambe’ from an Emo G Records. The Emo G Records account listed Musk as it’s profile name but it’s unclear whether or not Musk is actually behind the Emo G Records account, or if he has stumbled upon something try to use his name in a joke.

Moments after sharing the link to the bizarre song, Musk followed up his initial tweet with: “I’m disappointed that my record label failed,” adding further to the weirdness of the whole thing and leaving puzzled onlookers even more confused.

Musk brings quality of emoji meme back 

He had earlier shared a Duck emoji, referring to a meme from 2018 where people ranked the different looks of emoji on different devices. The tweet racked up over eight thousand retweets and 59 thousand likes.

The Tesla CEO then responded to just how popular the tweet had been, posting: “The quality of emojis varies wildly,” again playing into the ranking meme. With the retweets and likes of the SoundCloud link tweet being way passed by the Duck emoji, Musk tweeted: “Duck emoji defeats Emo G Records. Crushing victory.”

It remains to be seen just if the Tesla boss reveals if he is actually behind the Emo G Records account and if so, if he releases any more ‘meme’ hits in the future.

Until then, he looks satisfied with sharing any meme he fancies with his army of Twitter followers.

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
