DMX is a simple man, one who is not a friend of the technological marvel known as a computer. The Yonkers native is a father to nearly a dozen children, and a multi-platinum selling artist, but when it comes to computers, he just can’t seem to comprehend how they work—nor does he plan on further investigating the matter.
During his stop at New York City’s Power 105.1 , X was faced with a laptop, a machine which looked incredibly confusing to his complex mind. “I don’t want to learn how to use a computer,” X said pointing at the apparatus. “Look at all these things! It’s too much stuff! It’s scary!”
When faced with the task of trying to Google his name, the 41-year-old caught a brief wave of interest, but when he couldn’t find “the thing” (known as a mouse) he got frustrated again. “It’s an arrow and then it’s a hand, then it’s a line. Why? See, it’s confusing!”
Rather than committing himself to entering the new millennium by partaking in the use of a computer, like the rest of the free world, X decided to throw his hands up with the whole thing and accept defeat.
Computers aren’t for everybody, but le’ts give him credit for trying.
