Rapper Turned ISIS Soldier Who Once Toured With DMX Killed By US Airstrike
Deso Dog had a fairly successful career as a German gansta rapper between the mid-90s and 2010. While we imagine most of our readers weren’t pumping Deso back in the day, he did once tour with DMX, to give a bit of context.
After almost dying in a car accident in 2010 Deso converted to Islam and quit the rap game. More recently he hooked up with ISIS, and began showing up in recruitment videos for the terrorist organization. In one he threatened the President of the United States and in another he was seen dangling a severed human head. Such anti-social behavior got him labeled a “specially designated global terrorist.”
Now, according to the United States Department of Defense, Deso has met his maker:
“I can confirm that an Oct. 16 airstrike near Raqqah killed Denis [Deso Dog] Cuspert,” Elissa Smith, a Department of Defense spokeswoman, said in an email to the New York Times . “Cuspert was a foreign terrorist fighter and operative for ISIL who used social media to take advantage of disaffected youth and potential Western recruits. His death contributes to our efforts to stop foreign fighter recruitment,” she said.
And that’s that.
