Rapper DMX: Obama Who?!

3/17/2008 1:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DMXApparently DMX is not only crazy as the day is long, but he's also living on another planet.

The rapper did a bizarre interview recently with XXL, where he claims he has never heard of anyone named Barack Obama! He then proceeded to make fun of Obama's name -- because the name DMX is clearly ingenious.

DMX continued digging a hole for himself, saying he hasn't followed the presidential race at all and that "The president is a puppet anyway. The president don't make no damn decisions."

Lucky for the rest of the America, DMX revealed he's not allowed to vote because he's a convicted felon.

Calls to DMX's rep for a statement were not returned.

just because one is a convicted felon doesn't mean they can't vote...once they have served their sentence and/or probation, they can vote...so what's really too bad is that the dummy doesn't even know his rights!

Obama is definitely a media candidate. No discernable political skills, and an aversion to answering questions directly. Unfortunately, he is just not a worthwhile candidate for the job of President of the United States.

Granted, he's (probably) more intelligent than Jesse Jackson, but that's similar to saying that Britney Spears is slightly more normal than Lindsey Lohan.

Yeah, LUCKILY felons can't vote. Wouldn't it be terrible to live in a real democracy? I still can't believe he doesn't know Obama but he's smart enough to recognize that the prez dont make any real radical change anyway. Save your retaliation and go check out "A People's History of the United States" or "Great Wells of Democracy" before you get back to me. Thanks!

What's up with Obama's purple lips? Must be a sign of no experience. All sizzle and no steak and can't answer a serious question without hiding

Convicted felons can still vote. A law was passed that gives felons their rights back after their release (except the right to own a gun). Even most convicts don't know and it's posted in every prison.
