mbone gi Cali Swag District's M Bone killed in drive by shootingTwenty-two-old rapper M-Bone, born Mante Ray Talbert, was killed in a drive-by shooting on Sunday (May 15), according to multiple reports.

Talbert was a member of Cali Swag District — the group that brought us “Teach Me How to Dougie.” The dance and song caught on as a YouTube sensation in 2010, inspiring even first lady Michelle Obama to give “The Dougie” a try.

M-Bone reportedly sustained “multiple gunshot wounds to the head” while sitting in his car outside an Ingleside, Calif., liquor store. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Fellow group member Smoove, shared his reaction with fans on Twitter:
