Twenty-five year old rapper JayAre from the rap group, Cali Swag District, famous for their song “Teach Me How To Dougie” lost his life last night after he succombed to his battle with sickle cell anemia. He was admitted into the hospital Thursday night, then last night he had a cardiac arrest and died.
If you don’t remember, just a few years ago in 2011 another one of the group members, M Bone, was fatally shot in a drive by shooting over some guy in his neighborhood being jealous of his success. Two more group members remain to represent the Cali Swag District brand and hold the torch.
Rest iin peace JayAre. Sending condolences to the family.
Monte “M-Bone” Talbert of the Cali Swag District was killed in a drive-by shooting, Sunday night in Inglewood, CA. Cali Swag District is the crew responsible for the hit track, Teach Me How To Dougie.
The police has yet to find a suspect or cause for the shooting, but Internet speculation has been it was over a female. Though, no official statement has been made as to why someone shot the twenty-two year old rapper. Police officers are currently calling it a “wrong place at the wrong time” situation.
It’s reported M-Bone was standing by his car in front of a liquor store when a lone gunman rode past heading up La Brea and let loose with gunfire which struck and killed M-Bone. The gunman then made a u-turn to circle back and confirm his target was down.
Update 5/17/2011 It’s being reported that the motive for the shooting was jealousy. M-Bone girlfriend reports that a guy living in the same apartment complex as herself and M-Bone was jealous over Cali Swag’s success and they’ve gotten into it before behind the jealousy. In fact, M-Bone and this neighbor was in a Twitter beef during the time leading up to the shooting. No arrest have been made yet! Read more here!
Damn! bro let a brother blow up first before acting all jealous and ~ish! Dude obviously got it twisted, cause you living in the same apartment complex as dude probably driving the same kinda car and you’re sitting over there jealous of a nicca that’s doing just as good or just as bad as you!!! These guys haven’t reached the pinnacles of success yet!!! Why u mad fam? This was a nonsense killing and very sad!! Gotta do better people!!
Congratulations to the Cali Swag District. “Teach Me How to Dougie” has sold 1,000,000 copies and now its is certified platinum. I guess all the buzz it’s been generating it was only a matter of time before it went platinum.
