ISIS reportedly using music to recruit young westerners

Officials believe around a dozen young men have been recruited to fight with the ISIS terror group with some thanks to trendy rap videos.

The group is reportedly using rap music as a means of recruiting young westerners to fight with them.

According to one report by the Daily Mail , ISIS has been creating music videos and rap music to appeal to young people since June.

The music and videos talk about war and show "romanticized notions of revolution and adventure and first-hand accounts of the 'fun'," the Daily Mail says.

It is believed that some Americans have been recruited through a type of pipeline in the Minnesota area and officials are worried that young women are also being recruited.
