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.

While it is plausible that Rapper DMX does not know who Barack Obama is, that photo you have is NOT DMX. I don't know who that is!!

Why is this news & why are they asking DMX of all ppl to comment on the presidential candidates? & I find it comical that they posted a picture of DMX all sweaty... that was just lame! TMZ is having a slowwwww month.

why talk about people you don’t know what's really going on wit that man or what the industry is doing to him. Instead of talking bad about people you should pray for them. Lets not act like we all don’t have short comings and flaws. Talking down about someone rather we know them or not doesn’t change their predicament it only serves to make things worse and put more pressure on them and others who struggle with that same issue. Just pray for that man and yourself because you don’t really know everything you only know what the media tells you. Because if knew what was really going on in the industry and had that same pressure on your shoulders then you'd probably be smoking crack also. The industry is demonic and corrupt and we have no idea what it feels like to experience the life of a celebrity. So instead of criticizing we should be sympathizing.
