Denis Cuspert left the rap game for the jihad. The former German rapper who went by the name Deso Dogg was one of the militants killed in a U.S. airstrike in Syria.
He ended his rap career after converting to Islam and taking the name Abou Maleeq. He left Germany for Egypt and eventually Syria, where he fought with the jihadist anti-government forces in the Syrian Civil War, under the nom de guerre of Abu Talha Al-Almani (meaning The German Abu Talha).
He was injured during the fighting in the northern-Syrian town of Azaz in an air-strike conducted by the Syrian Army. In 2014 he gave his oath of allegiance to Islamist-Jihadi group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
The United States Department of State added Cuspert to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists.
