Late last week, Elon Musk’s SpaceX launched the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base. As the rocket made its way through the nighttime sky, unknowing LA area residents swore up and down that the lights, sounds and strange constellation was a UFO led by extraterrestrial aliens. Rae Sremmurd frontman Swae Lee is one of those skeptics.
The rapper took to social media sharing his complete shock.

Swae Lee caught the tail end of the rocket launch in a video where he said, “Bro, look at this s**t in the sky, bro. It was some lights coming out this s**t. Some s**t fell down and hit the earth, bro. Look at this s**t.” When asked if he thought he’d witness an alien sighting, Swae Lee added, “I think we did, bro.”

Once he received word that the bizarre sighting he believed was a UFO was actually a rocket launch, the rapper had a few questions. “So I’m sitting here, smoking this blunt, eating these soggy fruity pebbles, and I was thinking about those aliens, bro,” he began. “If that was a satellite, don’t you think they would have given you a warning? They ain’t know that s**t was about to come, stay woke. Don’t believe the hype.”

Just a little heads up to Swae Lee and other skeptics, Elon Musk claims there will be more rocket launches coming in the very near future so get ready!
If you liked tonight’s launch, you will really like Falcon Heavy next month: 3 rocket cores & 3X thrust. 2 cores return to base doing synchronized aerobatics. 3rd lands on droneship.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 23, 2017
