M-Bone of Cali Swag DistrictRapper M-Bone -- a member of the Los Angeles foursome, the Cali Swag District (CSD) -- was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting this past weekend in his hometown of Inglewood, California.

The rapper (real name: Montae Talbert) was reportedly next to his car, parked in front a liquor store, at around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday evening (May 15) when a car pulled up and shots rang out.

At least two shots were fired, one of which struck the M-Bone in his head, said Inglewood Police Lt. Steve Overly.

The 22-year-old was rushed to a nearby hospital, and later pronounced dead upon arrival.

Further details regarding the murder were unknown. However, initial reports say M-Bone was not the intended target in the shooting.

M-Bone's CSD brothers released a statement Monday (May 16), saying his death "was the victim of a random act of violence last night, Sunday, May 15th in his hometown of Inglewood, CA."

"As police are still investigating the shooting and untimely death , we ask that anyone with information contact the Inglewood Police Department," they said. "[M-Bone] was an inspiration to his family, friends, and fans. He was a hardworking, passionate artist and dancer that will be deeply missed."

M-Bone and the Cali Swag District burst onto the music scene in 2010 with their monster smash, "Teach Me How To Dougie," which was centered around a dance that started in the south. The foursome even taught Kim Kardashian how to do the dance.

Because you got big and not them?Maybe instead of sitting on the corner, selling dope & drinking daily....and go to college instead or get out of the "Hood" would be a better understanding. You aren't suppose to be living in the same "place" your whole life. That's quite boring if you tell me. Explore life.  Seriously?
