Hiphopobit: M-Bone

Montae Talbert, who as M-Bone was part of Cali Swing District, has been killed.

Teach Me How to Dougie, the band's surprise mini-craze-creation of last summer, owed much of its success to M-Bone's dance. Buoyed by Bieber and Ryan Seacrest having a go at doing the Dougie, the single made 28 on the mainstream Billboard charts.

The 22 year-old had left the studio where Cali Swag District were recording a debut album when he was shot in what reports say was a drive-by incident. The LA Times says he was driven to hospital, where he died.
