From The Grio — Hip-hop fans are mourning the loss of 22-year-old Cali Swag District group member M-Bone (born Montae Talbert) today. Talbert was reportedly shot in front of an Inglewood, CA liquor store late Sunday evening.

According to sources the shooter was driving alone along La Brea Avenue when he fired two shots at Talbert. The Cali Swag District group member was reportedly taken to an area California hospital where he was pronounced dead.


The Inglewood, California based Cali Swag District is best known for their billboard chart topping single “Teach Me How to Dougie.” The hip-hop song revolves around the “dougie” dance, which consists of casual shoulder leans and elbow twists. Just weeks ago first lady Michelle Obama brought the dance to a whole new, national audience. Mrs. Obama performed the dougie along with other moves from Beyoncé’s “Move Your Body” video, as she danced with students at Alice Deal Middle School in Washington D.C.

According to the New York Daily News Cali Swag District’s leader Smoove, confirmed the death M-Bone via his Twitter account.

“Ma life changed drastically in the. Blink of an eye rip mbone.”
