Former rapper Deso Dogg identified as member of terrorist group

The rap act joined ISIS three years ago, and has appeared in several of the group's videos.

A former rapper by the name of Deso Dogg (Denis Cuspert) has been identified as a member of the terrorist group Islamic State group (ISIS) by the US State Department on Monday, February 9, 2015.

Denis Cuspert became a part of ISIS in 20102. He has been seen in a number of ISIS videos including one of a beheading last November.

The German is said to have sworn an oath to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, and offered himself as "a willing pitchman" for crimes.
