Cali Swag District Rapper M-Bone Killed in Drive-By Shooting


Cali Swag District has experienced a series of highs with their ubiquitous single “Teach Me How to Dougie,” but the group lost one of its own on Sunday. M-Bone, one-fourth of the Los Angeles-based quartet, was the victim of a drive-by shooting.

The 22-year-old rapper, born Montae Talbert, was fatally shot next to his car outside a liquor store at 11:32 p.m. in Inglewood, Calif. The shooting appears to be a random act of violence, law enforcement officials tell TMZ.

The shooter was reportedly driving down La Brea Avenue in a red Mustang when he opened fire. The vehicle left the scene, but later returned, almost as if to make sure the victim was dead. After being fired at twice from close range, he was taken to UCLA Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“Ma life changed drastically in the. Blink of an eye rip mbone,” tweeted his fellow member Smoove Da General. “I’m crushed…jus seen Ma Ni**a on the news…idk wat to think or say…I’m hurting man real talk.”

Inglewood detectives are investigating, but it appears that M-Bone was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Why are violence and guns declared “cool” by people in today’s time? I can’t believe some people actually get a thrill from killing someone, I hope they burn in hell. R.I.P. M-Bone, another casualty from ignorance.

    This makes me upset and angry at the same time. Never heard of M-Bone, so I am not going to act like I am this huge fan that is going to miss him forever, but all of this useless violence is not neccesary AT ALL. Come on, WHEN are we gonna learn? May this man rest in peace. Another life lost, that could have been prevented, if someone would’nt have pulled the trigger.

    Death is not a joke and some people are treating it like it is. Some of our generation need to grow up and stop acting like they have power over somebody’s life when they don’t. God is the ONLY one to give and take away.
    God Bless xxx

    Worst-case scenario: Some “real-hip hop” purist snob pulled the trigger on M-Bone, claiming that he was doing to him what they were supposedly doing to hip-hop…

    RIP M-Bone: I’m a lyricist myself, but gotta respect that dude.
