At last! Septimius The Great has arrived!

Septimius The GreatSILENCE!

All hail the glorious arrival of Baltimore emperor/hip-hop champion/fashion icon, the legendary Septimius The Great! (Make sure you wear headphones when you click on that link.)

In case you weren't aware, he is almost 2,000 years old. He sits on a throne of naked people. He raps in slow motion. He cannot be defeated.

Behold, his glorious introductory rap:

He is known for being successful
and defeating them all
During the year of the five emperors,
he was the last one standing tall.


He has reigned superior,
and his legacy is here to stay.
He’s almost 2000 years old
and has reinvented himself today ...

He is here to erect
A new city to call home
Septimius presents
The new city of Rome.

septimius the greatThis is a new world
Of love, fashion and lust
You will find this new sound
To be exciting
And a must.

So lend me your mind
Body and ear
Without further adieu,
The new Rome
Is here.

Septimius will blind you with fashion, and crush you with his deadly rhymes.

All shall bow before the might and splendor of Septimius the Great!

I can't believe Sam found the end of the internet, and the end of the internet is Septimus. Damn you Sessa, I've been searching for years!

All hail!
Where have I seen this guy? Oh yeah, sitting on a throne of shrimp at Milan. Actually it was a giant shrimp made of shrimp diving into a pool of shrimp.

lol @ Rube. Nikc- thanx for the link *sigh

I love this new sound and look. Finally Prince has been reinvented in 2010. I would love to see his show in person. I checked out his website and he is scheduled to perform everywhere and his music has now gone worldwide.

Check out Septimius The Great updates on his website. This guy is everywhere and his music is growning worldwide. Hope to see him and DMFS performing on the same show.
