LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Rapper M-Bone of the Cali Swag District has been killed in a drive-by shooting in Inglewood, according to police.

The 22-year-old, whose real name was Montae Talbert, died Sunday night, Sgt. Brian Spencer with the Inglewood Police Department said.

Police say the suspect pulled up in another vehicle, possibly a red Mustang, and opened fire on M-Bone, who was sitting in his car outside a liquor store on La Brea Avenue.

He was struck twice in the head and pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center, police said.

Witnesses say the suspect drove off and then returned to the scene, almost as if to make sure M-Bone was dead.

Police do not have a motive in the shooting.

The group's leader, Smoove, has posted a tweet on Twitter saying,
"Ma life changed drastically in the. Blink of an eye rip mbone."

A YouTube video showing M-Bone doing "Advance Dougie" dance moves also had several comments referencing his death.

Cali Swag is based in Inglewood and is perhaps best known for their song "Teach Me How to Dougie."

Anyone with information in the shooting is asked to call the Inglewood Police Homicide Section at (310) 412-5246, or the 24-hour anonymous hotline number "888-41-CRIME" (888/412-7463).


Sources say this may have all started on the internet.

M-Bone’s friends have been in touch with cops, telling investigators after he got back to L.A. from his tour, he got involved with a girl. M-Bone’s friends say a guy who lived in the woman’s building didn’t like the relationship, and allegedly began threatening M-Bone via Twitter.

We’re told M-Bone did not back down and the two men started cyber smack-talking each other.

Also, the black car in which M-Bone was shot is registered to the woman.

Cops are trying to figure out why M-Bone was driving the woman’s car and whether the cyber war is in any way related to the shooting.
