Obama's rapper problem?

We've heard plenty about Barack Obama's supposed Latino problem. There's the lingering spectre of a muslim problem. And of course he's spent the last few days dealing with his pastor problem. But all of these pale -- in hilariousness, at least -- with his rapper problem. First 50 Cent brings up the A-word and throws his weight behind Hilary. Now comes XXL's unbelievable interview with DMX (we had to check the byline, to make sure this wasn't another one of Nick Sylvester's fake interviews with the Game). Here's the relevant excerpt:

XXL: Are you following the presidential race?
DMX: 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.


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

Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
Barack Obama?

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.

Your natural reaction may be to ask, like, "Hey, has DMX been hiding under a rock, or what?" Well, um, according to YouTube, he's in the studio, acting like he's on the rock.
