'Teach Me How to Dougie' star M-Bone of Cali Swag District killed in drive-by

Milwaukee radio stations know this joint very well, "Teach Me How To Dougie" by M-Bone of Cali Swag District. The song has spent plenty time on our airwaves. So it's very sad to announce the death of the young Inglewood star who was only 22 years old. Government name Mante Ray Talbert, he was a victim of a drive-by shooting.

According to police, he was sitting in his car alone sometime after 10:30 p.m. on Sunday outside of a liquor store. "Another car pulled alongside, gunshots were fired, and the victim was struck twice in the head," LT. James Madia said. Mante was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The motive for his murder is still under investigation according to Lt. Steve Overly. Detectives are currently investigating possible leads using information found across some social networking sites on the web.

The publicist for Cali Swag District, Greg Miller had this to say in a statement, Talbert was "the victim of a random act of violence," "He was a hardworking, passionate artist and dancer that will be deeply missed". Group member C-Smoove tweeted that his life changed drastically in the blink of an eye, and added "rip mbone." "He was the life of the group," "He made us laugh, he was the energy."

"Teach Me How to Dougie" spent several months in the top 10 of Billboard's hot rap songs.
