If this is a hip-hop and politics blog

then we totally got scooped on this:
Q. Are you following the presidential race?
DMX: Not at all.

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

Q. Barack Obama, yeah.
DMX: Barack?!

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

That is the most enjoyment I have gotten from DMX, ever.

Everyone, definitely click through the link, there is more where this came from.

[On the topic of Southern rap's dominance, but I think it sums up his disposition in general]

Q:You don’t think about it?
DMX: I really don’t care for it. To focus on other shit is a fuckin’ headache.

Clearly. His doctor has him on a very strict regimen to avoid migraines.

As commenter Sooch asks:

"why didn’t he just bark through the interview?"

I think he did just that.
