“Rapper young Calicoe now being investigated after dog fighting bragging video goes viral.

“Whether or not he’s actually fighting those animals, they are definitely NOT well taken care of. They need to be taken from him and given a chance to actually be loved.”

Note: the grass is gone where the dog is chained up. That dog stays on that chain too much.

“They champions in the making too, man.”

“Detroit rapper Young Calicoe’s statements boasting of his involvement in illegal cockfighting and dog fighting may have earned him the scrutiny of the Detroit Police Department.

The “MTV Cribs”-style video opens with a man holding what appears to be an alligator, as Calicoe says, “We’ve got an (expletive) zoo over here,” and the videographer proceeds to follow Calicoe and others through the property’s backyard, a kennel area and garage. Detroit police on Monday became aware of the potentially incriminating statements made by Young Calicoe after the interview “went viral”” – M Live

Original video: “Detroit Rapper Calicoe Shows Off His Dog Fighting Operation.”
