Comprised of rapper/DJ C-Smoove, rappers Yung and JayAre, along with their resident dancer M-Bone, they are a practical four-man performance machine hailing from the streets of Inglewood.
Known as Cali Swag District (CSD), they’ve created a great deal of internet buzz and crowded club dance-floors with its infectiously hypnotic single, “Teach Me How to Dougie,” through Checkmate Music Group/Capitol Records. Their own viral video for the song has generated over 1.5 million views on You Tube.
Cali Swag District has captured the mood of the streets with the “Dougie” which was introduced to them by a high school friend that attended Texas Southern. Knowing the dance originated in Dallas, TX the guys wanted to add their Cali Swag to the dance movement. “In the end, we loved what they where doing in Texas so much that we wanted to bring it to Cali” explains Yung.
Cali Swag District’s much-anticipated debut album is slated for release summer 2010, through Checkmate Music Group/Capitol Records.
