Is DMX Serious??????
There always comes a time when you have moments that you wish you could take back or maybe you just weren't having a good day. Apparently DMX had one recently when he gave an interview for XXL mag. Media Takeout.com posted this excerpt, and I have to say, I am royally embarrassed for him.
XXL: Are you following the presidential race?
DMX:Not at all.
XXL:You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
DMX:His name is Barack?!
XXL:Barack Obama, yeah.
DMX:What the f*ck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?
XXL:Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
DMX:What the f*ck?! That ain’t no f*ckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that n*gga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the f*ck outta here.
XXL:You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
DMX:I ain’t really paying much attention.
XXL:I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
DMX:Wow, Barack! The n*gga’s name is Barack. Barack? N*gga named Barack Obama. What the f*ck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his f*ckin’ name. Ima tell this n*gga when I see him, “Stop that bullsh*t. Stop that bullsh*t” [laughs] “That ain’t your f*ckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack."
And to think, he wasn't even in Blackface!
Remember back in the day when they would have those PSA's for drugs, and they would show the butter sizzling in the skillet, "this is drugs," then add the egg, "this is your brain on drugs, any questions?" Well, this interview is the new PSA.
How in the name of all that is logical does this man not know who Barack Obama is? There are kids in Africa who don't even have modern electricity that know who Barack Obama is and that he is running for president. This negro is right here, and don't know. Obama announced his candidacy in February of 2007, where the hell has DMX been, in a cave with Osama bin Laden?
