Dead Dogg: ISIS Rapper Who Sang, "I Long for for Death", Dies

You may be thinking that this is an old story. But, no it's not. 

Deso Dogg, a Muslim Jihadist from Germany, was reported dead once before. And then it turned out that he's alive. But second time's the charm.

Deso Dogg was the stepson of an American soldier stationed in Germany, which probably helped motivate his pathological hatred for the United States. He became a leading rapper in Germany and then converted to Islam and became a Salafi Jihadist.

“You are not going to live in safety. You employ millions and billions for the war against Islam. And that’s why this country is here, the Federal Republic of Germany, is a war zone," Deso Dogg had threatened.

"I light the bomb in the middle of the crowd, I press the button" he sang, "Right in the city centre or in the subway, press the button, al-Jannah, al-Jannah"

"I long for for death and can not wait for it, armed with bombs and grenades."

You'll never guess what happened next.

The pro-IS Al-Wafa media group announced the death of Denis Cuspert, who also went by the name Deso Dogg, on Thursday and posted graphic photos of his corpse, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.

Al-Wafa said Cuspert had died in an airstrike during a battle in Gharanij in Syria's Deir el-Zour governorate, but that he had killed 10 enemy fighters before he died. The announcement also praised him for continuing to fight despite having suffered numerous injuries over the past few years.

The Berlin-born Cuspert joined IS in 2012 and appeared in numerous propaganda videos for the terror group, using the name Abu Talha al-Almani. In one video, he held the severed head of a man he claimed to have executed for opposing IS.

The United States labeled Cuspert a Specially Designated Global Terrorist in 2015, saying he was both an IS recruiter and a "willing pitchman" for the group's atrocities.

In October 2015, the U.S. coalition targeted Cuspert in an airstrike in Syria, initially assessing that he had been killed. But military officials later determined he had survived.

At least he got his wish. And now he's a dead Dogg.
