The surviving members of [artist id="3573337"]Cali Swag District[/artist] have released a tribute song in honor of the late M-Bone. The song, titled "How to do That," was released Monday (May 23), a little over a week since [article id="1663922"]M-Bone was murdered[/article] while sitting in his car on North La Brea Boulevard in his hometown of Inglewood, California.
JayAre, C-Smoove Da General and Yung perform on the tribute, which recalls fond memories of their fallen group member, over a beat outfitted with cavernous drums and creeping keys. "Then a n---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 turned up, he still having fun," JayAre raps on the first verse.
Yung lyrically concurs that M-Bone (born Mante Talbert) brought energy integral to the group when on the third verse, he raps, "If Bone wasn't going to the club, then we all stayed/ The life of the party, everybody knew that."
The refrain "M-Bone! Show these cats how to do that/ Cats how to do that/ Cats how to do that" serves as the song's chorus.
[article id="1664358"]M-Bone's funeral services[/article] are being held Friday at Faithful Central on 333 W. Florence Avenue in Inglewood, and fans have been invited to attend.
Despite [article id="1664017"]reports[/article] that the "Teach Me How to Dougie" rapper was embroiled in a beef with "a jealous man" that lived in his apartment complex, there is still neither no clear motive for M-Bone's shooting nor have any arrests been made. The Inglewood Police Department is asking anyone with information to come forward and call its homicide division at (310) 412-5246 or its 24-hour anonymous hotline number, (888) 41CRIME, or (888) 412-7463.
