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

  /  05.16.2011


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.
