DMX Weighs in on Barack

DMX gets all socially conscious in this snippet from an interview in XXL. Enjoy.

Are you following the presidential race?
Not at all.

You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
His name is Barack?!

Barack Obama, yeah.
Barack?!

Barack.
What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

Yeah.
What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.

You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
I ain’t really paying much attention.

I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?
Nope.

Oh, DMX. Why is it you always say just what I'm thinking, but in that subtle, sexy way of yours? I mean, I know you're "not a nice person," but I love you, and I agree.

(Even though your mama didn't name you no DMX.)

Actually, I'm pretty sure the Hillary campaign paid DMX to say all that.

I think those quotes have been doctored. I don't believe that DMX went that long without barking and/or yelling "What?"

He was doing the What thing long before Lil' Jon even had a pimp cup.
