"Anyone want a fighting dog?"

A Detroit rapper named Calicoe recorded a tour of his pad, which may, from the looks of it, house a dog-fighting operation.

Young Calicoe, according to his Facebook and Myspace pages, lives in the Detroit neighborhood of Brightmoor. He may be supplementing his nascent hip-hop career by raising pit bulls. The rapper, who calls the animals "fighting dogs," seems to crates the pups in the back of his home. Reddit readers flagged this video this morning, and it's quickly going viral.

Calling it, "The worst Cribs' episode ever," Gawker wrote, "There is also a strong suggestion that roosters kept on the premises are also being used for the purposes of staging cock fights. One of them is introduced as 'Grand Champion.'"

The rapper denied the charges on Twitter. "If u find a video of me "FIGHTING DOGS" PLEEEEZE LET ME KNO," he Tweeted.

According to the Humane Society, involvement in dog fighting can result in variable fines and up to five years in prison in the state of Michigan.

The Huffington Post has reached out to Young Calicoe for comment. Check back for updates.
