Yesterday morning, a group of DEA agents raided the Dallas rapper's home on suspicions of drug trafficking. The rapper, who has had a hugely successful run over the past couple of years thanks to hit singles "Ice Cream Paint Job," "Walk That Walk" and "Get Big," was not arrested.
In other words: His house is not only clean on the outside, but on the inside as well. Or so it would appear at the moment.
It's tough to say exactly what down at the moment: Terri K. Wyatt, special agent for the Dallas division of the DEA, confirmed the raid but refused further comment "due to the on-going nature of the investigation."

HOME INVASION LEAVES DEA TO COME UP SHORT FINDING NO EVIDENCE
On the morning of February 8, 2011, hip-hop recording artist Dorrough was awakened as his home was being invaded by the DEA. Although the home of the Dallas, TX native is lavish and complimented with vehicles to match, the DEA found no evidence and could not make an arrest after an elaborate investigation, which may have been stereotype-driven.

Dorrough is anxious to get back in the studio to work and make more hits."
