R.I.P. M-Bone, Cali Swag Member

According to online reports, a member of the rap group Cali Swag District was shot dead in a drive by Sunday. The group is known for its lone hit “Teach Me How To Dougie”, which spawned a dance craze that swept the nation.

From The Buzz:

“The victim was sitting in the passenger seat of a car when another vehicle pulled up alongside and unloaded “at least two rounds” into the car, according to Lt. Michael Marshall. “It looks like they knew each other. It was not a traditional drive-by.”

But TMZ reports the crime “appears to be a random act of violence.”

Either way, authorities have no suspects yet and are asking for help.

MTV notes that “details have been kept brief,” but cites a police source saying the artist “sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the head while sitting in his vehicle on Le Brea Avenue. M-Bone was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.”

Cali Swag District had a huge hip-hop hit last year with “Teach Me How to Dougie.”

M-Bone, also known as Montae Talbert, was 22.

  • lovezoe

    Only people who do drive-bys are punks. True gangsters are like the “character” on American Gangster who shoot you for all to see and dare someone to tell. Notice I did the quotes on character. Such a sad event.

  • prynsexxx

  • HoneyDip aka QueenSJ

    I despise the thug mentality/lifestyle, gangbanging, no-snitchin’ policy, materialism, greed, cold-hearts, and stupidity.

    The sad part is that we’re almost immune to hearing stories like these. RIP.

    This is really too much. If I was a young male I wouldnt even want to aspire to be rapper anymore. Its a dangerous profession!

  • StillASassyOne

    I despise these bish niggas who are Nino Brown with a gun but Britney Spears with their hands.

    I wish they would all go to some island and off each other.

    I’m an Inglewood native and hearing this on our local news this morning made me so sad. The shootings have just become so absolutely ridiculous. This boy was 22 so this doesn’t apply to him but I’m trying to keep mine in the house for as long as I can.

  • pointhimout

    so ridiculous. when did we stop valuing life and so non-chalant about taking the life of another person?

    Drivebys are for Punks!

    RIP M-BONE ….teach St. Peter to Dougie….will be hilarious to see when i get there…

  • Redeemed777

    @Ace

    There will be NO DOING THE STUPID AND WORLDLY DOUGIE IN HEAVEN.

    This young soul had no time to repent, he was still very much apart of the materialistic world.

    No repentance No salvation.

    Judgment day is for SENTENCING not for second chances. And definitely NOT FOR ANYTHING HIP-HOP OR RELATED TO IT!!!!!!!

  • Redeemed777

    Yall really take this whole world and spirituality for a Joke…..

    You better get serious, because God is not playing with us.

    Everything mentioned ( which includes rewards & punishments) in the Old and New testament of the Bible WILL COME TO PASS

    Keep thinking this is a joke if you want to…you will find yourself being amongst those group of souls that Christ will tell ” I never knew you “

  • Redeemed777

    Look at the picture of this dude above very well…..

    DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK THAT THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL FIND IN HEAVEN?????????

  • yallcrazy

    If he confessed his sins and admitted/acknowedged Jesus Christ dying on the cross for his sins, then he will be in Heaven. Who cares how he looks, it’s what’s in his heart.

    You really thinking your EXTREMISM is gonna RSVP your seat in heaven …i strongly doubt it…

And a nicca got every right to Hit his dougie and drop down to a Catdaddy as much as your Biblical Ass has to Sway and Speak in tongues if and when you get there….

    Nope, you sure won’t.

  • MzDetermined

    It’s way too much going on in the world…this violence needs to stop.

  • miamore1973

    I find it ironic when one sits in judgement of others while telling them why THEY won’t get into heaven.

    I don’t believe I’m going to hell because I live my life the way YOU think I should or the way a book says I should. I believe in the Lord and I have my Lord in heart.

    Wouldn’t putting so much faith into a book fall under believing in false prophets? I think the Bible should be considered words to live by. Isn’t essentially a book of very valuable pearls of wisdom. Who wrote the Bible?

    Honest question.

    Redeem is driving me crazy and has been for over a week now. True speak.

  • peanutbuttercup

    I live in Inglewood and here’s what they’re saying in the streets: M-Bone had just left the studio on Florence and La Brea with some chick who was driving, when the pulled up to the liquor store to buy some swishers a guy drove up and blasted. All this is suppose to be over some broad. What a waste.
