Cali Swag District, Known For Teach Me How To Dougie, Loses Another Member

“Cali Swag District – Teach Me How To Dougie”

When Teach Me How To Dougie came out in 2010 it was a bit hit. Featuring Cali Swag District dancer M-Bone, the rap group was off to a strong start with the viral dance hit.

Sadly the next year M-Bone was murdered in a drive-by leaving the group to continue without him.

Though they’ve never achieved the same profile, Cali Swag District soldiered on and now face another tragedy.

Member JayAre died yesterday of cardiac arrest. It’s still unclear if his death was or was not a result of sickle cell anemia.

JayAre RIP.
