So there’s an interview with the perpetually troubled MC DMX up on the Web site of Complex today, and as you would expect from a man who’s up on animal-cruelty charges and using fake names on hospital bills, it’s full of classy bits about sex and speeding (although he claims he exceeds the maximum MPH while driving much nicer cars than the ones he’s been caught in by traffic cameras). But there’s one bit that made me wonder if he’s actually using the word “groupie” as code for the term “police officer”:
Complex: Have you ever been with a groupie?
DMX: Is that a serious question? With as many baby mothers as I got, what do you think? What is a groupie? What do you call a groupie?
Complex: The girls that hang around after a big show or concert.
DMX: Yeah, that’s everywhere though. It’s notorious, if I go to the mall, you know, it’s like–outside, you know? Anywhere.
Those of you who have been following the DMX saga as closely as I have may remember that he was arrested at a Phoenix-area mall on the aforementioned identity-theft charges, a coincidence that makes me wonder if there isn’t a little bit of, ahem, projection going on in his boasting. Although replacing “groupie” for “police officer” in the whole story certainly puts the charming tale about a paramour with a big butt who didn’t wipe or flush after she did her business in a hotel bathroom in a new light.
