TMZ and KPNX television in Phoenix are reporting that officers from the Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff’s Department raided the home of rapper DMX early yesterday morning.

There, officials reportedly made a disturbing discovery – no fewer than 12 distressed pit bulls.

Distressed as they might be, those dozen pit bulls should consider themselves lucky… they could have met their demise in Michael Vick‘s Bad Newz Kennelz. Thin about it.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not home at the time. The Phoenix news channel is reporting that a large cache of weapons was found in the home as well.

Wow, guns at the home of DMX. That’s about as surprising as learning that Britney Spears has a new “nanny” that she may be having an affair with.

DMX has a long rap sheet (heh), having been arrested back in 1999 for (seriously) stabbing and shooting his mother. He was later cleared of those charges.

In 2002, he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges. Last summer, he was arrested and given some candy ass fines for driving without a license. Paris Hilton would be proud.
