Cali Swag District is best known as the group that introduced the world to the Dougie Dance, which became a hit last year via the song "Teach Me How to Dougie."

Montae was apparently in the wrong place at the wrong time on Sunday, driving around his hometown of Inglewood. Police have no suspects in the murder.

From his bio on the Cali Swag District website:

Birthdate: 9/17 - Virgo Dream Date: Alicia Keys Fun Fact: Although the group has a lot of tattoos, he will probably be the one to end up with the most. Favorite Video Game: Madden Favorite Clothing Brand: Misfits Favorite Movie: "Boyz n the Hood" because it reminds him of when he grew up in LA. Place to visit: Europe

You'll find M-Bone Dougie-ing at 1:45 in this video:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
