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.
