Viral Music Superstar M-Bone Shot Dead in Inglewood

Hip-hop and YouTube star M-Bone was shot dead over the weekend outside an Inglewood liquor store. Police tell TMZ the shooting appears to be a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

M-Bone was a member of Cali Swag District, whose song “Teach Me How to Dougie” was a quintessential 21st century viral hit. The song is pretty good, but having instant access to the video online allowed the rhythmically challenged out there to learn the dance from the comfort of their own homes. You have no idea how many wildly uncoordinated white people this Fishie knows who know how to “Dougie.” The “unofficial” (read, home made) video has over 12 million views, so that should give you some kind of indication.

RIP M-Bone.
