NEW YORK (AP) - Groupon's quirky former CEO, Andrew Mason, has been working hard on a new album, "Hardly Workin,'" since he was ousted from the troubled online deals company in February.
The seven-song album drops business knowledge on listeners with tracks such as "The Way to Work," ''My Door is Always Open" and the hip-hop influenced "Stretch." The latter begins "we all know that you gotta have goals every quarter."
Groupon's failure to meet such goals was part of the reason Mason was fired.
Mason calls the album "motivational business music." It's available for $9.99 on iTunes and it's streamed on Spotify.
Here's the opening line: "If you're seeking business wisdom, you don't need no MBA, look no further than the beauty that surrounds us every day."
And it goes on from there.
