'Dougie' Rapper M-Bone Killed in California Drive-By

David Becker/WireImage(INGLEWOOD, Calif.) -- Cali Swag District member Mante "M-Bone" Talbert, 22, was killed in a weekend drive-by shooting in his hometown of Inglewood, Calif., police said on Monday.

Cali Swag District rose to fame in 2010 with their hit song "Teach Me How to Dougie," inspiring everyone from Wolf Blitzer to NBA star John Wall to show off their own version of the classic dance craze, "the dougie." The group had been recording tracks for an upcoming album in their hometown of Inglewood, when "M-Bone" was shot and killed.

Talbert's manager told ABC News that Talbert was taking a break from the recording session to drive out to a store to get something to drink, when another car pulled up beside him and an unidentified person fired two shots, hitting him in the head.

Inglewood police said Monday that Talbert was found in his car at a liquor store Sunday night, and died at a hospital.

It was not immediately clear whether police had a suspect or possible motive.
