A week after the death of Cali Swag District member Montae "M-Bone" Talbert, the group has come together to release a tribute track called "How To Do That".
Rather than taking the somber route, Cali Swag remain uplifted on the pop-influenced track.
The remaining three members of Cali Swag District remember their fallen comrade Montae "M-Bone" Talbert with the tribute song "How to Do That." JayAre, Smoove Da General, and Yung reflect on happier days while keeping M-Bone's memory alive. "Then a ni**a did you wrong/ On your way to get a blunt, you shoulda put it in a bong/ M-Bone lives through me, Smoove, and Yung/ So when we all turnt up, he still having fun," raps JayAre. (Rap-Up)
According to group member Smoove, a video for their tribute is in the works.
"We gon shoot it this weekend RT @FreshBTP: @SmooveDaGeneralyall need to shoot a video for that m bone song that sh*t hard," he tweeted Monday (May 23). (Smoove Da General's Twitter)
While M-Bone's murderer has yet to be arrested, the late rapper's girlfriend believes their neighbor should be considered a suspect.
The girlfriend -- who is scared and does not want her name used -- confirms M-Bone was in a Twitter war with the jealous man, which we previously reported. We're told the jealous man made threats of violence. The girlfriend tells us ... on Sunday ... she picked M-Bone up at the airport at 12:15PM and took him back to their apartment. Later that night, at around 10PM, M-Bone took her car and said he was going to the studio to record. She tells us soon after she got a call from another member of Cali Swag with the devastating news her boyfriend had been shot. (TMZ)
The rapper's life was taken away on May 15th.
Talbert was shot twice in the head Sunday night in the 400 block of North La Brea Avenue, said Lt. Steve Overly of the Inglewood Police Department, when someone pointed a gun out a car window and fired multiple shots. Talbert died later at a hospital. (Los Angeles Times)
