Rap group Cali Swag District’s M-Bone was shot and killed late last night. While details have been kept brief, according to an Inglewood police spokesperson, the 22 year old group member sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the head while sitting in his vehicle on Le Brea Avenue. M-Bone was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Cali Swag District made a major impact on the Hip-Hop market last year thanks to their catchy single “Teach Me How to Dougie.” The track set off a rap sensation with the tune instructing fans how to perform the dance craze that sparked millions of followers. M-Bone was infamously known as one of the group’s prime dancers along with members DJ C-Smoove, Yung and JayAre.
Last year we caught up with Cali Swag at the height of their dance movement where the collective elaborated on the track.
“A friend of ours went to Texas Southern [University]. He picked up on the [Dougie] dance [and] he learned how to do it [the way] they do it in Texas,” C-Smoove recently told MTV News. “He came back like, ‘Y’all should make a song about this dance.’ So we made it happen. We went in the booth and we tore it down.”
Fans of the group immediately responded to the tragic news of M-Bone’s passing.
“R.I.P M-Bone of Cali Swag District! Got the homie and his family in my prayers!! To the whole crew keep y’all heads up! #luv” Young Money’s Lil Twist wrote in.
“May the Ancestors welcome hime through the transition” commenter RA wrote in. “SMH We gota stop this yall! Too many brothers in hip-hop, and just too many brothers in general die because of some BS.
“Omg im really sad now waking up hearing that @MbOoONe died…no more nice goodmorning texts such a sweetheart” tweeted NicoleSaldua.

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Phoenix-to-Sacramento flight carrying 118 passengers made a “rapid, controlled descent” emergency landing on Friday afternoon after the aircraft’s fuselage cracked open at 36,000 feet causing an explosion-like sound and sudden loss of cabin pressure, reports LA Now.
According to Southwest Airlines, the passengers on board Flight 812 have received a full refund along with an apology and two complimentary round-trip passes on Southwest for future flights. After the plane landed safely in Yuma, the crew confirmed there was a hole in the top of the aircraft, approximately mid-cabin.
300 flights have been cancelled and 79 aircraft are grounded while engineers examine the fleet for additional signs “aircraft skin fatigue,” and the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board investigate the incident.
