Rap group Cali Swag District is paying their respects to fallen member Montae "M Bone" Talbert with a memorial tribute song "How To Do That." The 22-year-old Talbert was shot at a drive-by shooting on May 15.
"We gotta stay strong and keep our music going, keep our heads on right and just stay safe and stay off the streets." says member C Smoove in a statement. "M Bone was the life and energy of our group.  We'd have fun on stage because of him.  We hope that fans will help us pay tribute to him by continuing to dance in M Bone's memory," adds Yung.
In the song, members C Smoove, Yung and JayAre all take a verse to talk about their best memories of Talbert.  It samples the M Bone-inspired line from "Teach Me How to Dougie,{ "M Bone show these cats how to do that." The track was recorded in Inglewood at Big Wy's studio, where they recorded most of their debut album The Kickback.
