INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Police say M-Bone of the Southern California rap group Cali Swag District has been killed in a drive-by shooting while sitting in a car outside an Inglewood liquor store.
Lt. James Madia says the 22-year-old Inglewood resident, whose real name is Mante Ray Talbert, was sitting in the car shortly after 10:30 p.m. Sunday when another car pulled alongside, and shots rang out.
The rapper was struck twice in the head. He slumped over the wheel and died at a hospital.
The other car fled.
Madia says investigators are trying to determine a motive for the shooting.
Cali Swag Group had a hit last year with the single "Teach Me How to Dougie," and the rappers made the rounds of TV shows demonstrating the dance.
