Deso Dogg, Ex-Rapper Who Joined ISIS, Is Killed by U.S. Airstrike (CHRISTINE HAUSER, OCT. 30, 2015, WSJ)

The former German rapper Deso Dogg, who abandoned his music career in 2010 and became a recruiter in Syria for the Islamic State, was killed in an airstrike this month, the Pentagon confirmed Friday.

The musician, born Denis Cuspert, toured with the American performer DMX in 2006 but later abandoned rap music and became a well-known singer of nasheeds, or Islamic devotional music, in German. The State Department designated him a terrorist in February after determining he had become a "willing pitchman" for the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.
