DMX freaks out over using Google

Watch DMX Google himself for the first time

DMX is a brave, brave man. He has endured prison, endless legal battles, and the tumult of a rap career -- but these pale in comparison to what the rapper confronted yesterday: The Google. He told Power 105.1, "I don't even know how to use a computer. I don't want to know how to use a computer." Of the Google toolbar, he said, "That's scary. That's scary."

Eventually, an interviewer coached him through it, and it was sort of OK:


"I know you can do this, just type 'D-M-X.'"

(DMX struggles to find keys)

"Oh, all right, so what do I do?"

"Now you hit 'Enter'!"

Eventually, DMX growled in frustration. But hey, that's how Ruff Ryders roll.
