“Teach Me How to Dougie” Rapper Murdered

16 May

Rapper M Bone, a member of the California rap group Cali Swag District, was gunned down last night as he sat in a parked car outside of a liquor store. He was 22.

As the rapper, whose real name was Mante Ray Talbert, sat in the driver’s seat of a car a burst of gunfire erupted from another car. M Bone was shot two times in the head, but a passenger in the car was not injured. The group’s publicist said that M Bone was the victim of random street violence.

The incident occurred in Inglewood around 10:30 p.m. The Cali Swag District burst onto the national scene with their infectious dance hit “Teach Me How to Dougie” last year. The song eventually hit number 28 on the charts, and remained in the top 10 rap songs for several months. Celebrities ranging from CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer to First Lady Michelle Obama have performed the dance.

“I’m crushed. I feel awful. I just want to go sit in a corner. I just lost one of my best friends,” said JayAre of Cali Swag District. “I’ve been with this dude every day for like two years, and like I’m never going to see him again.”

Police have not yet arrested a suspect.
