Civil Rights Leaders Urge Rap World To Speak Out After Artist's Murder

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOS ANGELES - The rapper known professionally as M-Bone, was shot to death in his hometown of Inglewood, Calif., law-enforcement officials said.   M-Bone, real name Montae Talbert, was 22.  He was a member if the hip-hop group Cali Swag District and recorded the hit, "Teach Me How to Dougie."

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and Los Angeles Civil Rights Assn. President Eddie Jones called the May 15th murder a “great tragedy.”

"The murder of 'M-Bone' unfortunately continues the cycle of violence that has claimed the lives of several prominent rap artists in the past few years," said Hutchinson. The group urged rap artists and fans to speak out on the violence in the Rap community.

“M-Bone is the latest in the list of rap artists that have been gunned down in recent years,” says Hutchinson and Jones, “The cycle of violence among some in the rap community that has resulted in the continued violence must be broken.”
