After Local Rapper's Studio Raided by MCSO, He Records "Eff Sheriff Joe"

You're probably going to be hearing a lot more about this from us: We got a call from a local rapper, Mickey Swift, about his new video "Eff Sheriff Joe," inspired by a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office raid on his recording studio.

Apparently the MCSO received reports of a lot of people coming and going from Swift's house at odd hours -- three roommates plus his recording studio, he says -- so they staged a pre-dawn raid that ended with no charges and lots of property damage. You can see some footage of the destruction in the above video.

It's actually kind of catchy, too.
