Darryl “DMC” McDaniels Backs Hillary Clinton “Because it’s Gangsta”

dmc.jpgDarryl “DMC” McDaniels of the legendary group, Run-DMC, attended his first political fund-raiser at the Capitale nightclub in New York City last week for Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. According to The New York Observer, DMC is juggling his decision to back either Clinton or Barack Obama. Apparently, DMC believes Barack “could fix everything,” but is leaning towards Clinton “because it’s gangsta [and] I ain’t doing what everybody else is doing.”

“He [Obama] is probably the best man for the job because he don’t really got to worry about people, taking people’s sides,” DMC told The Observer. “Like, Hillary has people she dealt with for years and sometimes she might have to make a decision and tell these people, ‘F you, I got to do this,’ and they’re going to get mad at her. But see, with Barack right now, he can look at the whole landscape.”

When The Observer asked whether Barack would do a better job as President than Clinton, DMC responded. “I didn’t say that. I said he would come and fix everything. Hillary, she can fix everything, too. But it’s a little easier for Barack because he hasn’t been around as much. He’s been in the Senate and doing those things.” DMC continued to say. “I have faith in Hillary. I just [think] Barack would have nobody to worry about. He’s like Run-DMC wearing Adidas into a Reebok [or] Nike party. People got to respect that.”
