Cali Swag DistrictHometown: Inglewood, Calif.
Members: Smoove Da General, Yung, JayAre and M-Bone
Song: “Teach Me How To Dougie”
Album: The Kickback
Chart Position: No. 28 (Billboard Hot 100)
Why It Was Hot: Another track that sparked an undeniable dance craze, when "Teach Me How To Dougie" came out it seemed like you couldn't get away from it. "The Dougie" originated in Dallas, and the track sparked countless YouTube videos, parodies and imitations of the video, becoming a popular track just about everywhere. Even President Obama and Michelle Obama got in on the action, doing the dance on Ellen and Dr. Oz, respectively.
Where The Group Went: The group is currently working on projects and recently released a new video, "Pillhead," which features Cali rapper Nipsey Hu$$le. Tragically, just over a year after the song came out, the quartet was cut down to three after M-Bone was shot in a drive-by in his hometown of Inglewood.
Current Status: Together and plotting more music, including a new track with Waka Flocka Flame that's due out soon.
