UPDATE: Detroit’s Young Calicoe Remains Under Investigation for Animal Abuse Operation


(AllHipHop News) Nearly a month ago, Detroit rapper Young Calicoe stunned the online world when he released a viral video of him bragging about a dog and cock fighting business that he organized and managed in the backyard of his Detroit home.

Days later, the video was brought to the attention of the Detroit Police Department, and shortly thereafter, Young Calicoe’s residence was raided by the FBI, and they removed numerous roosters and pitbulls from the residence.

Now nearly a month removed from the filming of Calicoe’s boisterous video and the raid of his operation, the investigation still continues, as prosecutors look to file criminal charges against the Detroit battle rapper.

The “MTV Cribs-esque” video was filmed on 12200 block of West Outer Drive in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood, and Calicoe’s management has since said that the video was merely for  a “skit” to an upcoming video, although the Humane Society clearly sees things differently.

“The issue is still ongoing,” Kevin Hatman of the Humane Society told MLive.com, a local Michigan website. “There’s a lot that goes into a potential dog fighting prosecution. Right now, we’re waiting on the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office to make a charging decision.”

“That’s all it was, entertainment, that’s it,” Calicoe’s manager explained. “He’s just sitting back waiting for this to just blow over, so he can eventually talk about it, so there’s no unanswered questions.”

Filming for the video is credited to Midnight TV Hood Reality, and there is no word on if the film crew will also face criminal charges for partaking in the video’s creation.

Calicoe has also renounced the video, pleading with fans and viewers to alert him of any future videos online: “If u find a video of me “FIGHTING DOGS” PLEEEEZE LET ME KNO”

At the time of the FBI’s raid, Detroit Police Chief Godbee told ABC News Detroit, “We’re very confident that we shut down an operation that is not contributing to the quality of life of this neighborhood.”

He went on to say, “I want to thank the media for the attention that you brought to this because the humane treatment of animals … It is very important to us and some of the conditions that we saw, without going into detail, gave a lot of credence to support what, I think, is going to be a prosecutable case going forward.”

More news as details emerge.
