Rapper DMX Sees Google For The First Time
Oh DMX…what happened to you? You used to be so.. kind of scary. But now you're looking a little soft. A little grandma-like. SMH. Why am I coming down so hard on Mr. Earl Simmons? Well the other day, while out promoting his new album, DMX said he had never heard of Google and then proceeded to act like a scared and confused kitten while attempting to Google himself. Unfortunately for him it was all caught on tape. Which has to be pretty embarrassing even for a guy with a collection of mugshots.
This all went down when the rapper made a radio appearance on Thursday, at Power 105.1 in NYC. After DMX confessed that he was unfamiliar with the world's number one search engine, someone decided it would be fun to school the rapper on how to Google himself. Cue DMX freaking the firetruck out. He gets agitated about the lack of a mouse. He doesn't like the name, Google. He complains that there's too much going on on the Google homepage. Yeah, because the Google homepage is known for being super, super busy graphically. I mean there are like four colors in their logo, people!
My favorite part is when he complains about buffering. DMX ain't got patience for that! Maybe with his history and the bad reviews his recently dropped album have been getting, it's a good thing he doesn't know how to Google himself. Still…HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT GOOGLE IS!?! I mean yeah, he's been in prison a lot, but it wasn't like he was in a coma for the last 20 years. Maybe a weed coma? If they really wanted to up the humor they should've had a ninety year old granny school him on the mysterious ways of the internet.
Here's a look at the video, which is kind of funny and kind of sad all rolled into one.
What do you think? Do you believe DMX really didn't know what Google was? Let me know @desijedeikin or in the comments below!
