Stay classy: Local nobody rapper Young Calicoe brags about 'fighting dogs' (updated)
In a video discovered by Gawker, Detroit rapper Young Calicoe tells the camera that he is not "country" before giving a tour of his ramshackle backyard filled with chained, seemingly malnourished dogs and caged roosters.
Mr. Calicoe (to borrow from the New York Times' absurd style guide) strongly implies these are fighting animals by saying they are fighting animals. He also jokes about getting busted like Michael Vick.
Of course if you assumed that these were, in fact, fighting animals because that’s what the rapper said they were, you would be a hater telling lies and starting drama. Young Calicoe took to Twitter to deny the allegations and challenge his critics: “If u find a video of me 'FIGHTING DOGS' PLEEEEZE LET ME KNO”.
The Walt Whitman of the urban prairie, this Young Calicoe is.
And while he may not be country, Young Calicoe is a pure Michissippi rube because that yard is unfit for neither man nor beast. Someone please alert Detroit Dog Rescue.
UPDATE: The Free Press is reporting that Humane Society cruelty investigators are now investigating Young Calicoe and his "champion" animals, which will hopefully find more suitable owners soon. And maybe this dbag will get the Michael Vick treatment after all.
