Mante “M-Bone” Talbert, 22, of hip-hop group Cali Swag District was reportedly killed in a drive-by shooting last night (May 15).

Bone, who was sitting in his car in his hometown of Inglewood, California when two gunmen pulled up alongside him, died of two gunshots to the head, MTV reports.

He and his band gained popularity last summer with their dance single “Teach Me How to Dougie.” Their debut album, The Kickback, has not been released yet by Capitol Records.

This morning, Cali Swag leader C-Smoove tweeted, “Ma life changed drastically in the blink of an eye. RIP mbone.”
