UPDATE: THIS NEVER HAPPENED. See this post.
Earlier…….Via The Source:
It’s May, and despite the fact that Sanders appears to have lost far too much ground to Hillary Clinton to make a serious run at the Oval Office in November, the Vermont senator is still campaigning, and he was in Lancaster, California today speaking at another rally packed with thousands of his avid fans. Sanders did not disappoint, and he strolled up to the podium with quite the interesting entrance music blasting over the PA. How interesting? Try DMX‘s “Where The Hood At.” We’re not kidding. Watch the clip. The only thing louder than the music was the crowd’s gleeful reaction to it.
We can probably be sure that the Sanders campaign didn’t actually listen to the song’s lyrics:
Man, cats don’t know what it’s gonna be
Fuckin with a nigga like me, D-to-the-M-to-the-X
Last I heard, y’all niggas was havin sex, with the same sex
I show no love, to homo thugs
Empty out, reload and throw more slugs
How you gonna explain fucking a man?
Even if we squashed the beef, I ain’t touching ya hand
I don’t bunk with chumps, for those who been to jail
That’s the cat with the Kool-Aid on his lips and pumps
I don’t fuck with niggas that think they broads
Only know how to be one way, that’s the dog
I know how to get down, know how to bite
Bark very little, but I know how to fight
I know how to chase a cat up in the tree
Man, I give y’all niggas the b’iness for fucking with me, is you crazy?!
Billboard Magazine has DMX’s reaction:
DMX responded to the clip in an email sent to Billboard, saying, “When God shows up he shows out.” He did not confirm whether he was a Democrat or officially supporting Sanders. Still, Sanders has a history of being chummy with rappers. MCs like Killer Mike, Lil B, Bun B and Big Boi have all shown their support for the Vermont senator — whose catchphrase is “Feel the Bern” — whether on their timelines or in rallies.
