Rapper news: Deputies raid Phoenix home of DMX

Picdmx They found a bunch of gnarly stuff there, too. You know, guns, suspected drugs, a dozen pit bulls, a couple pit bulls' bodies.

DMX -- whose real name is Earl Simmons -- has yet to be charged with anything.

But the story wraps up with this notable background information:

In 2002, Simmons pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia in New Jersey. Police said they found pipes for smoking crack cocaine, a pistol and 13 pit bulls at his home in 1999.

His albums include "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" and "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood" and "Year of the Dog ... Again."
