The rapper who helped pen the hit “Teach Me How To Dougie”, was confirmed dead by group member Smoove Da General who posted on Twitter,
“My life changed in the blink of an eye. RIP MBone.”
*TMZ is now reporting that murdered Cali Swag District member M-Bone may have been targeted after a Twitter war over a girl.
Sources say M-Bone’s friends have been telling investigators that he started seeing a girl after he returned to Los Angeles from his tour. 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,” TMZ reports.
The site is also reporting that the black car in which M-Bone was shot is registered to the woman.
Police 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.
According to TMZ, witnesses claim the shooter fired, left, then pulled a U-turn and came back around, possibly to see if he hit his target.
M-Bone, real name Montae Talber was 22-years-old.
