Cali Swag District have released ‘How to Do That,’ a song that pays tribute to their group member, M-Bone, who was tragically killed on May 15.

JayAre, Smoove Da General and Yung celebrate the best characteristics of deceased rapper, repeating in the chorus, “M-Boooooone, show these cats how to do that.”

The Los Angeles hip-hop group also makes reference to the fateful night M-Bone was slain. “Then a n—- 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 turnt up, he still having fun.”

Born Montae Talbert, M-Bone was the victim of a drive-by shooting. Police confirmed that the 22-year-old died of two gunshot wounds to the head. He was found in the driver’s seat of his car outside of an L.A.-area liquor store.

Talbert helped Cali Swag District rise to stardom with their platinum dance single ‘Teach Me How to Dougie.’ The group honors the benchmark by rapping, “I love you like no other, a part of Cali Swag there will never be another / We came from the gutter and we made it to the top / The dougie was the dance, so we thought we’d make it pop.”

A video for the tribute song is in the works. Funeral services for M-Bone will take place on Friday at Inglewood’s Faithful Central Bible Church and will be open to the public.
