Hip hop artist M-Bone, a member of the hip-hop group that skyrocketed to fame from their hit song, “Teach Me How to Dougie,” died Sunday night.
The 22-year-old Cali Swag District rapper was shot and killed in what appears to be a random act of violence late Sunday in his hometown of Inglewood, California. Police found M-Bone, whose birth name is Montae Talbert, slumped in a car with two gunshot wounds to his head. He was taken to a hospital and later pronounced dead.

According to MTV, “witness accounts confirm that the rapper was seated in his car when the gunmen pulled alongside him in a separate vehicle and let off at least two rounds” and “the suspects fled northbound on La Brea.” Police are investigating the homicide.
“Ma life changed drastically in the. Blink of an eye rip mbone” C-Smoove, a member of Cali Swag District, tweeted early Monday morning.
