When it comes to acts of terror, the U.S. has a new person of interest to pay attention to.
Per Sun Times:
The State Department has declared the rapper, whose real name is Denis Cuspert, as an international terrorist over his alleged ties to the Islamic State. Cuspert is a German citizen, and according to the State Department, he now identifies himself as Abu Talha al-Almani.
Cuspert has gone from appearing in music videos to numerous ISIS propaganda videos, including one where he “appears holding a severed head he claims belongs to a man executed for opposing” ISIS, according to a statement from the State Department.
The State Department said Cuspert is “emblematic of the type of foreign recruit” ISIS seeks, has been a “willing pitchman” for the organization’s “atrocities” and as such been officially designated as a “foreign terrorist fighter and operative” for the group.
In 2007, Cuspert/Deso Dogg/al-Almani released a music video titled “Welcome to My World Full of Hate and Blood.”
