Police are still investigating the murder of Cali Swag District rapper M-Bone — and say that lack of witnesses are what is stalling the investigation. According to Time Magazine, Lieutenant Oscar Serrano of the Inglewood Police Department said, “When witnesses don’t want to come out and talk, that’s a challenge. It’s proven to be a challenge in these types of shootings, and it’s a challenge right now.”

Following his untimely death, locals in Inglewood say that the gunman might have been jealous of his success and that M-Bone recently feuded with someone on the internet. Serrano said, “It’s something that’s been brought to the attention of detectives, and they’re looking into whether it’s important to the investigation.”

  • As previously reported, M-Bone, born Montae Talbert, was shot to death outside of an Inglewood, California liquor store back in May.
  • Cali Swag District will release their debut album The Kickback on July 12th.

He said, “At first, I was like, ‘Man, this crazy! Everybody doing this!’ But then I thought about it and I was like, that’s not the way to be. You gotta keep it G, man. G’s don’t get mad. G’s is like, that’s what it is. They congratulate you. I changed the game, so I’ma keep changing the game. It is what it is.”

Sean said that Kanye was impressed, took his demo and listened to it for the whole day.

The rapper added that although that was the beginning of his relationship with Kanye, it actually took him a long time to get signed to G.O.O.D Music.

  • He said, [“That’s how it initially started, but even after that it took a couple of years to get signed to him. I gave up everything . . . I graduated high school with a 3.7 and had scholarships to Michigan State and I gave all that up and I was ready to go to Michigan State too. I wanted to like live on my own, I wanted to have sex with all the random girls up in college. I wanted to live that young life and I gave it up. Just for the possibility of being signed at Kanye — not even sure thing. But eventually, it all worked out.”] SOUNDCUE (:35 OC . . . all worked out.)

These n*ggas don’t know what they want to be. Drake be throwing gang signs and sh*t, I be seeing whatever the f*ck he’s throwing up. I don’t know. He go to the wrong place and he’ll be f*cked up.”

  • He continued, “I don’t listen to Wale. Pill’s solid. I don’t know Meek Mill too much, but I definitely don’t listen to Wale’s sh*t. See, you can’t even f*cking pinpoint it. You can’t even put these n*ggas in a box and label it. All of these n*ggas. Big Sean, Wale. You just said ‘Big Sean is like a Wale kind of guy.’ What is that? F*cking weirdos, right?'”
  • He added, “That’s some buttf*ck rap. “I’m saying, you can’t even put these n*ggas [like Wale and Big Sean] in a category. You don’t know what the f*ck they are.”
