When you are one of the largest private equity fund CEOs, you can get away with anything. Even if it's a rap about how you do your business. So here is a funny video from the Carlyle group, where CEO David

Rubenstein sings a rap song with lyrics on what they do as a business.

Rubenstein wears a bright red pair of Beats By Dre headphones—a company in which Carlyle made a cool return when it was bought by Apple for $3 billion early this year. Carlyle founder and chairman Daniel D'Aniello is a partner in the ‘crime’ with Rubenstein.

Take a look at the video here.

The text of the rap (via Business Insider

It takes a lot of brains to do what we do, 

Looking for a way to make some dough for you.

Energy, commodity, we do it all, 

So pick up the phone and give us a call.

Corporate mezzanine, private equity, 

Carlyle Group is the place to be.

We're global, we're mobile, we're aiming to please.

Only goal in mind: serve the LPs.
