(Newser) – M-Bone, a rapper in the hip-hop group Cali Swag District, was killed in a drive-by shooting yesterday while sitting in a car outside an Inglewood, Calif., liquor store, say to police. The 22-year-old rapper, whose real name is Mante Ray Talbert, was sitting in the car shortly after 10:30pm 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, and investigators are trying to determine a motive for the shooting.

Cali Swag District 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.
