First off, I know this doesn’t have a whole lot to do with sports, but it was so ridiculous that I just had to share it with you guys. If you want to draw a comparison to sports… DMX just signed a new recording contract with Bodog Music. Bodog owns a popular MMA organization as well as a sports betting website. There.
So I was reading a DMX interview on XXLmag.com, and the subject of this years presidential race came up. The hilarity unfolded a little bit like this:
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 :Barack Obama?
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.
XXL: So you’re not following the race. You can’t vote right?
