Rap Legend DMX Utterly Flummoxed By His First Ever Google Search [Video]

"Just get a regular word. What is a Google?"

Chances are, you’ve been in a scenario when you had to explain some basic feature of the Internet–email deletion, cache clearing, Facebook liking–to someone like a luddite boss. But you’ve probably never been in as seriously?! a scenario as one Power 105.1 reporter, who recently found herself teaching rapper DMX how to use Google on a laptop.

This delightful video begins DMX confessing, “I don’t even know how to use the computer. I don’t want to learn how to use the computer.”

Aghast, the millennial interviewer demands to know, “Are you lying?” and pulls him over to a laptop. What ensues is nothing short of amazing, as Mr. X claims that he doesn’t even know how to Google himself, deems the process “scary,” and complains about the naming of websites:

Of course, DMX does admit understanding how to Google himself on the phone. Perhaps he’s just skipped the PC era and leapfrogged us all into the age of mobile?
