Kratos, the anti-hero of Sony Playstation's popular God of War franchise, has retired from videogames and is now flexing his formidable talents in the rap music industry.
In a press release, um, released over the weekend, Kratos was quoted as saying, "I WILL END YOU! I AM THE DESTROYER AND YOU WILL PAY!"
Mo Henry, president of ToneDef Music, is signing the Ghost of Sparta to a six year contract, convinced that Kratos' controversial style will sell millions. "You can't just make up what Kratos has to say. He's been through it all. Loss, grief, ripping his foes and innocent bystanders to pieces. I think it speaks to all of us."
Mr. Henry was kind enough to allow us to print an excerpt from Kratos' soon to be hit, "Don't Get Up In My Grill, Zeus"...
THE BLOOD OF THE GODS WILL SPILL ON THIS DAY!
YOUR SON WILL AVENGE ALL THOSE YOU HAVE MURDERED THAT I HAVE LOVED!
THE SKIES WILL RAIN WITH MY ANGER!
BITCHES GONNA DIE!
In related news, an upcoming download for the PS3 game LittleBigPlanet 2 will feature a Kratos costume.
