Rapper DMX has some choice words of advice for his fans: "Stay the f- out of Arizona."
He also appears to harbor a grudge against the sheriff of Maricopa County:
"For the record, f- Sheriff Joe."
The video aired by gossip Web site TMZ.com has all the cuss words bleeped out, but DMX's points aren't lost. The rap star, who last year became a fugitive from Arizona justice for a short time, was apparently chatting about Arizona to a fan (or paparazzi) following a recent restaurant outing.
Another special moment in the video is when the somewhat smartalecky junior journalist asks DMX where his dogs are.
